Epitaph is definitely the highlight. I think moonchild and I talk to the wind are a bit too long / too sparse

If the drummer played 80% less than he does, this would be a great album.
He just keeps on playing in every damn second. Feel like he spoils some almost magical moments with its fills and 32nd notes everywhere.
Despite this this is a good record!

I never liked 21st Century Schizoid Man. No matter how many times I listened to it, no matter how many times I just couldn't like it and it kept me away from this album for a long time. It's a shame I waited so long to listen to it because Epitaph is probably one of the greatest songs I've ever heard, with Greg Lake performing some of the best vocals I've ever heard on it. Along with I talk to the wind and the court of the crimson king, there are some amazing gems on this record. Even 21st century has grown on me a little. I respect these guys for paving the way for many other amazing Prog-Rock artists

Utterly unique. This album just oozes raw power; some of the buildups, crescendos and instrumental parts are really astounding, with the help of the grandeur of the mellotron. Amazing, especially for 1969!

I can't believe this album will be turning 50 soon. Still feels ahead of its time. Absolute masterpiece

I can't even start describing the impact that this album has (had) on me. This record, Pink Floyd and Rush stuff is what introduced me to prog. It broadened my musical taste (I started being interested in albums that weren't just pure rock), made me realise that not all music that's good is verse-chorus-verse, and that many great albums are under the radar. A game changer and a life changer, at least for me
