Andrew Keeling's fifth guide to the work of King Crimson provides an informative insight into the making of one of the band’s most fascinating and controversial albums.
This guide takes you through all the complexities of the music, stripping away layer after layer to reveal the inner workings of the exquisite machinery of harmony, counterpoint and rhythm that, seemingly so effortlessly, go together to make Lizard.
"Dr. Keeling's work uncovering the inside and outside of Lizard, personally and impersonally, within its musical and wider culture, is a triumph. I have learnt more here than from any other commentaries of my acquaintance." - Robert Fripp
