King Crimson

In the Court of the Crimson King - 8

21st Century Schizoid Man/I Talk to the Wind/ Epitaph/ Moonchild/ The Court of the Crimson King

One of the great prog albums of all time. There is a timeless feel about this album that mixes rock, prog with elements of jazz into a vast wall of sound that swirls around, making the title track and Epitaph two of the greatest rock tracks ever recorded. Within a very progressive framework KC have managed to fuse elements of rock on 21st Century Schizoid Man with peaceful ballads such as Moonchild and I Talk to the Wind. This was where music was at in the early 70s and it has quite rightly been heralded in many publications as one of the greatest rock albums of all time.
