200 Gram LP



The original stereo mix of the 1970 classic

Newly cut from masters approved by Robert Fripp

200-gram super-heavyweight vinyl

With its grandiose aggregate of clashing styles, whirling free-form improvisations, soaring classical themes and dramatic showcases and showdowns, Lizard, is even by today's standards, a remarkable and extraordinary album.

Given the ambitious ground it attempted to cover, it's perhaps no surprise that King Crimson's third studio album still has the capacity to polarize opinion amongst enthusiasts, and even those who helped make the record in September and October 1970.

"The 23-minute title track sounds more like a kind of free-form post-Miles era Gill Evans than anything you might have caught down at the Fulham Greyhound...Not everything comes off but the sense of adventure that drives the whole enterprise is admirable." Paul McGee, The Word.

"Often described as "jazzy", Lizard is basically baroque rock, but its mellotron fanfares are mixed with the splintered lines of jazz pianist Keith Tippett and the free-blowing horn section from his sextet." — Mike Barnes, Mojo
