the third in a series of king crimson high quality vinyl reissues the album's return to the 12 Inch vinyl format is newly cut from masters approved by robert fripp manufactured on 200 gram superheavyweight vinyl and housed in a reprint of the original beautiful gatefold sleeve this edition also contains bonus mp3 codes giving access to a download of a transfer of an original 1970 pressing 'lizard' features a lighter more delicate sound than the earlier albums an approach perhaps necessitated by an extended instrumental lineup the expanded range of instruments allowed for intricately interwoven instrumental passages with fripp's guitar and tippett's piano pleasingly to the fore and this combination along with the prominence afforded to mel collins and the guest players on the album's main title suite led some to believe that fripp was guiding crimson towards the world of jazz and away from rock altogether but such claims were misguided crimson was as ever seeking to expand the vocabulary of rock music and 'lizard' was in some ways the band's most ambitious album to date
