This review is from: In The Court Of The Crimson King (Audio CD)
The ultimate spawner of 70s prgressive rock (although released 1969), what can I say? If you're only vaguely interested in music from this era then you should start by buying this album. 21st Century Schizoid Man is simply incredible - so good on sax - while "I Talk To The Wind" is a beautiful contrast to the opener. You could argue that the Moonchild Medley is a little contrived, but if you just sit back and listen to it, it can be seen as something that is certainly worth listening to - it's almost like a theatre or film production, everything has its place to create an effect on the listener. The contrast from Moonchild to the dramatic Court of the Crimson King is the perfect way to end the album.
5 stars without a doubt.
