5 stars King Crimson carying on with best releases ))))) What was really amazing for young proggers like (myself) in the early 70's , when Islands was released , the impact of listening the new classical - jazz - rock fusion in best shape , perfectly crafted tracks , with multi use of different musical instruments (not used often in the early 70' by many bands ) and creating the essential bridge of combinating between different type of music ln perfect acceptable shape . The clever & creative source behind this action Robert Fripp kept the balance in providing the progressive market with stunning excellent works . Between 1969 & 1976 his line-up kept changing , BUT , always to the best of his works . No doubt that this creative source inspired so many giants up till now , not to mention that all musicians are involved one way or another by hundreds of excellent releases in the progressive markets . As far as Islands , it's really enjoyable album and an essential passage between In the Court & Red , So if i tell fellow proggers that i feel like listening to this album every day , believe it , from the Epic the Sailor's Tale to Islands there's no way to skip any track in this work . So ,,,,, I can't give less than 4.5 stars for this perfection , it's really worth it . Best Regards from (( Tracks Toni ...Beirut - Lebanon .))
