"This is another much under rated album by the Crimson King. The Daryl Hall versions of several tracks are great  although the original album version of Mary can't be beaten. Breathless is pure Crimson"

"Jazz trio versions of Crimson classics. It is much much better than that sounds"
Atom Heart Mother

"Iconic cover but less well liked than almost all their other albums. The orchestration puts some off I guess, but why is this derided and the terrible The Wall loved? A mystery to me."

"Well tracks 1-12  (i.e. the first album) I listened to this once and put on TV just as Space Junk started and there was news of a falling satelite narrowly missing hitting people, spooky"

Do It Yourself [2CD Deluxe Edition]

"I saw this in the Children's section of John Menzies in Dundee. I imagined some poor kid emerging from his room having sprouted horns and a forked tail after listening to it."
