5 stars Why reviewing any particular work after 662 reviews , all agreed that this is a Masterpiece of progressive rock . Your reviews about this album took at least 40 hours of my time , what was really surprising to me was , that some reviewers spoke my language in this regard . What if the date of release wasn't 1969 , so what will happened if this work observe the light today 3/5/2008 . In fact i know what will happen dear proggers , we will have the same reviews & the same ratings ( ranging between 2 to 5 stars ) But the only difference will be my review & my rating , simply because one way or another in 1969 ( when i was 16 ) In the Court of Crimson King , in addition to few releases at that time like Supertramp first , Fruupp's future legends , Floyd's ummagumma , then Tull's Aqualung , change my life in a complete way , that cannot be described in few lines . What makes these excellent works Masterpieces is not only that we enjoy them . Yes , for sure that in every album there's always some tracks that i don't like , but it doesn't mean that my reviews & ratings has to be effected by a song , MAYBE , i couldn't understand , or addressed to someone else . Can you imagine yourself enjoying a beautiful song like Epitaph , for 32 years , then suddenly you've got the lyrics on the internet . then a dictionnary to translate every single word in it ........... How wonderful this feeling is , So , this is one of few pieces of art that we cannot argue about their ratings . I'm still doing my best to improve both , my reviews & my english language , not to mention my progressive library......................yours Tracks Toni --- N.B = rating in 1969 , 4.5 Stars . rating in 2008 , Now that i really understand the lyrics , this excellent work deserves a 5 Stars .
