Link: All About Jazz review of the 40th Anniversary Edition of ITCOTCK

In anticipation of my in-depth look into Steven Wilson's 5.1 remix of this all time Progressive Rock classic, I thought I'd share with you this review which does a decent enough job giving a broad overview of this new release. They also reviewed the other albums recently rereleased (Lizard and Red) but those reviews were crappy in comparison. I'm going to focus on the surround sound treatment and go into a bit more depth in terms of how this thing sounds, but All About Jazz's review is fairly deep and resoundingly positive. 

King Crimson: In the Court of the Crimson King (40th Anniversary Series)
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.
