Background: King Crimson’s debut, In the Court of the Crimson King, was released in 1969 and remains one of the defining albums of the progressive rock era.  The album reached #5 on the UK charts and #28 on the U.S. charts, where it was certified gold and was the highest charting album the band ever had in America. gave In the Court of the Crimson King a rare 5 star review:

The group’s definitive album, and one of the most daring debut albums ever recorded by anybody. At the time, it blew all of the progressive/psychedelic competition (the Moody Blues, the Nice, etc.) out of the running, although it was almost too good for the band’s own good — it took King Crimson nearly four years to come up with a record as strong or concise.
