Haha yes, I'm looking quite forward to reviewing Red but that'll be a little while away - I have 2 weeks until my mid-semester break.

I believe Fripp has only ever written lyrics for one KC song (the Great Deceiver). Peter Sinfield was hired as their full time lyricist through his friendship with Ian McDonald, then Richard Palmer-James through John Wetton and later on, Adrian Belew took the reins.

Lizard is great and fairly overlooked too. I'd say it was a bit of a risky departure in sound, even by KC standards.

Anyway, I'm trying to condense the reviews a bit more nowadays - I might even move away from the track-by-track format in later reviews.
