The first Crimson release is incredible. Definitely one of the first truly Prog Rock albums with all the requisite pomp and circumstance. Great songs like Epitaph and Moonchild will twist your head around multiple times. Lots of Sgt.Pepper-ish sound effects, taking what the Fab 4 started in '67 to new territory and laying the groundwork for other greats like Genesis, Yes, Gentle Giant and can be heard in Porcupine Tree, Radiohead and other modern art rock bands. Classic stuff!
