5.0 out of 5 stars Classic Prog !?, 16 Oct 2011
Prog I know is one of those very debatable issues but for me this is almost as good as it gets. Frumpy's first two albums are great but this is a masterpiece. Keyboards aplenty and some excellent guitar work. Inga Rumpf has a great rock voice which really complements the music. Great stuff. An essential download.

4.0 out of 5 stars Well worth the money, 16 Oct 2011
This has never been my favourite King Crimson album, in fact prior to this release it was one of only a few that didn't appear on my Ipod. It is now. I have collected all of the 40th Anniversary releases so far and this one in particular has brought the original album to life for me. Highlights on the CD include the violin/bass interplay on Trio, a track that could bring a grown man to tears!, the thumping bass on Fracture, the amazing guitar on The Great Deceiver and the vocals of John Wetton on Lament. There are plenty of extras on the DVD as well including a great Video from June 1973. I still find the title track hard going but otherwise it's all good.
