Incredibly influential and great in its own right. The various soundscapes that King Crimson put forth on this album are fantastically creative. There is no adhesion to the musical laws of their rock contemporaries and that's what makes it so special. It's just different than everything that was around. That's not to say that it hasn't held up over time because it has. I can only imagine how it would've sounded in 1969 but it still sounds great 50 years later. If I had to give it a knock, I'd say the lyrics aren't the best I've ever heard or that some of the more experimental ideas are questionable.

I'm really sad for people who can't enjoy listening to this masterpiece. It has five songs but it's far better than albums that have fifteen-twenty songs and plenty of fillers. Moreover, each song has its own theme and messages, which adds them unique qualities. For example, i talk to the wind is about religions and sceptical behaviours towards them. It's beautiful to realise these things as you progress in the album.

This album practically ushered in a new genre of music. In terms of outwardness and pushing the boundaries, this album made Sgt. Pepper look like a Cliff Richard record.
