All Reviews
It has been over 50 years since this album appeared, and still makes for one of the most compelling debuts in pop music history. Not to mention, it pretty much stands apart from every other King Crimson album which would follow, but that’s another story for another review. The infamous "21st Century Schizoid Man" is a tantalizing forward look at the power of heavy rock melded with free-form jazz, but most of the rest of the album is devoted to the grandeur and awe that the best of the progressive rock genre could offer. Or, in the case of "Moonchild", the worst examples of the genre's excesses.
