Ik vond deze recensie van In the Court of the Crimson King (40th ann. versie) bij toeval. Het is wat mij betreft de spijker op z’n kop. Twee citaten:

For the first time since its initial release, not just remixed but remastered as well in both stereo and 5.1 surround, the 40th Anniversary Series incarnation of In the Court of the Crimson King is the gold standard against which all previous editions will be measured—and, ultimately, fail. Crimson's entire original discography will, during 2009/2010, be reissued in truly definitive editions, and based on this title and the parallel-release of Red, it's going to be a grand period of rediscovery and just plain discovery, with previously unheard details now audible, and a bevy of bonus tracks, alternate versions and video content made available, in many cases for the first time.”

First, the original album...well, almost. Regardless of what format chosen, the album has never sounded this rich, this clear or this powerful. The 5.1 Surround mix takes greater advantage of the rear channels than most surround music mixes, but avoids being anywhere near gimmicky, thanks to Porcupine Tree's Steven Wilson, who collaborated with Fripp on these and many other of the 40th Anniversary Series editions. From the opening salvo of "21st Century Schizoid Man"—which, over the years has become Crimson's equivalent of "Free Bird" as its most demanded song in performance (despite Fripp's often strict avoidance of it, or anything else that looks back instead of forward)—the sonics are simply stunning. No over-compression or excess normalization here; this is a remix and remaster that honors the spirit of the music. A new mix might be grist for criticism from purists (witness discussions about the Genesis remixes), but Wilson and Fripp avoid any superfluous choices. Instead, the goal is simply to make the album sound the way it always should have sounded, with the benefit of technology that simply didn't exist forty years previously.”
