4 stars For Those Who are Curious and not bad for the rest of us.

This is a very good intro to the world of the Court of the Crimson King. It covers quite a lot of territory from the beginning to the early 2000s. Does it have every thing that we would want on it, no, but it is a pretty good two album (CD) collection that gives the listener all the various line up changes and sounds that the band went through.

It does have the main pieces from the Court as well as those that followed (although some are abridged, they are still good). This is a great starting point for those that know not of the Crimson King, therefore I give it a 4 star rating for the beginner.
