Review: It has been a musical eternity since King Crimson first introduced prog rock fans to their particularly artistic interpretation of the sound, landing on the scene just before the 1960s collapsed into the 1970s, with this special edition boxset containing the band's similarly limited edition 40th anniversary series in its entirety, which itself is over a decade old. The fact nothing here really sounds like it comes from a completely different age is testament to how good their work was, and still is. The track 'Epitaph' captures the mood perfectly - compressed strings sitting in the shadows of simple piano notes. As does the low fi innocent folk of 'Moonchild'. A far cry from many of the cliches associated with this genre label, with work like 'Catfood' owing as much to blues and rock 'n' roll as anything else it's not hard to see why KC achieved such universal adoration.
