Representing something of a shift in direction from the first two King Crimson releases, with an all-new line-up, Lizard captures the emergence of Robert Fripp as the sole composer for the group. Boasting an impressive cast of guest players, the third studio album presents a distinctive and ambitious distillation of rock, jazz and quasi-classical music settings wherein scorching guitar, squalling brass and apocalyptic mellotron are marshaled to dramatic effect. Stand out tracks include Cirkus, The Peacock’s Tale and the astonishing Fripp guitar solo, Prince Rupert’s Lament. Featuring the virtuoso piano playing of Keith Tippett and a guest vocal from Yes’ Jon Anderson, with its grandiose clash of styles, free-form improvisation and meticulously orchestrated arrangements, Lizard stands out as both an unsettling and remarkable album.
