5 stars What makes the difference in rating such works as In the Court of Crimson King & Lizard . Simply , the answer is within yourselves . In the Court is one of my favourite albums since 1969 , and as a young teenage i accepted this work easily , his password was marked on its cover . It's one of the most commercial works of the progressive rock since that time . But , what about Lizard ...... I've purchased this album in 1971 , having no idea that this release from King Crimson has a special code , not marked on the cover of the album , and you have to figure it out by yourself , using your common sence , and reading between every single detail of the 5 tracks . Time factor was my code to open the perfection of Lizard , if in your opinion In the Court represent the best of KC's works , or it deserves 5 Stars as rating . I also believe in this humble equation , but imo Lizard was not addressed to the 70's markets , not even to all proggers , So figure out by yourselves why this particular release by King Crimson is on this statues as far i'm concerned . Still , as a conclusion to my previous talking , If , In the Court deserve a 5 Stars rating and a special place in your 100 most popular progressive releases ,which i don't mind at all . Lizard deserves a lot ... lot ...... lot more attention , time & recognition . As far i'm concerned in this review , this is the best of the best of the best releases ever in the world of progressive mania since 1969 up till now , it's in fact number one with no assistance , not even from Crimson's discography so far , and deserve no stars in my humble opinion . --- N.B = as i cannot exceed the limit of 5 Stars , it's ok for me to do so . Tracks Toni .
