Comment: This is the most beautiful and intriguing website I have ever come across. As a writer, a teacher and someone simply intrigued by great presentation over the web (rarely finding it), I just wanted to say how much I enjoyed your site. I do have a question. On the DMG site, Fripp makes comments on only the "In the Court..." album, but not "In the Wake..." Why? If you get a chance...

Comment: I find the lyrics of the music of King Crimson very gripping and compelling. This may sound strange but King Crimson's music comforts me.

Comment: Interesting site, but as someone who knows Pete Sinfield personally, I can tell you now he never wrote that kind of significance into his lyrics.
Also, the word "faggot" does not mean cigarette in England - that is a "fag" which is completely different. A faggot is a bundle of peat or moss used tight a fire with. It is also a kind of meatball.
If you are going to correct someone, get it right.
Nevertheless, nicely designed site, if a little pointless.

I feel Peter Sinfield's lyrics are amongst the best written literature ever heard and it is an enviable gift to duplicate such words. Especially on Lizard. They take you to fairy tale landscapes and tense battles. Peter Sinfield's lyrics are enough to make a movie out of. A very rare gift.

Comment: The term 'faggot' is an English word, used in Britain meaning: cigarette. Check the Oxford English Dictionary. The word 'faggot' was bastardized or has been bastardized by the cultural relativist who believe language can mean whatever you want it mean. I enjoyed your web site. Well laid out.

Comment: wonderfully done. some of the most keen insight to art i have ever witnessed.this body of work is overflowing with meaning and organized to understand.i have never put so much thought into any one thing, and i am only the reader- the creator of this colossus must have spent quite a time chiseling this beauty out. i had always been intrigued by jung (eros and thanatos), and King Crimson is a part of my personal identity-so it is nice to see them connected. Mr. Green should be proud at such a monu

Comments: It's nice to know there are others whose epitaph will be"Epitaph" (or whose wakes will be a bloody good King Crimson party).
Pete, thanks for the words, to know you're out there and still ticking, that your voice is still channelling. It's evident that there are many others who are inflamed by your own, and your mates, passion.
Burn on, silver wheel. (Or is it 'Sea Goat'?).

Comments: This is like finally achieving vindication following 28 years in the stocks - all the rotten cabbage is washing away in a recuperative stream of pure, cool water. Those of us who refused to recant concerning Peter's lyrical and poetic genius - often in the face of considerable hostility (even from Fripp!) - can now read, and read again your superlative work. It's hugely enlightening and so beautifully presented. The shimmering image (six of those curious Tammo de Jongh 'Archetypes') mirroring 'In The Wake Of Poseidon' is spellbinding. I simply had to smile!

Comments: Nice work! Sinfield's lyrics have been called "pretentious" for many years but I always liked them.
I think his lyrics fit perfectly to the complex music by Fripp, and the result is the best artcraft I've ever heard!
This creative collaboration has been for many years an inspiration in my life.
Your interpretation is a good instrument for anyone who likes the way Sinfield's words sound, but has problems with the content.
I especially liked what you said about Poseidon, the water album, with the more beautiful lyrics ever written in music history (as JCrary said).
I agree with someone from Finland who said that the contents of this page should be in a CDbox of the Sinfield period.

I've always loved Sinfield's lyrics, but like most of us I've just been confused when trying to figure out what they REALLY mean. Now, thanks to you, Jon, we've got tools to interpret the lyrics in one, even if not the other way. Grade A+

Comments: Wow! My first thought is, "Here's a man with a lot of free time on his hands!" Please don't take that wrong. The work you've created is very interesting and I've learned alot. And to think, all these years I just viewed Mr. Sinfield's words as "just great lyrics to some great music." In the decades that I've listened to King Crimson, and in particular, the first three albums, I never thought to try to disect the words and connect them to the real world. Ok, on "Happy Family", I admit I did think of the Beatles! But, really! Do you think that Peter was trying to give us a history lesson? I found this site from your post in ET. I believe that you mentioned that you had further correspondance with Peter. I've read his posted mesage. Did he offer any further encouragement to you to dig deeper into his work?

Comments: Great stuff. A must for anyone who wants to have a better understanding of the lyrics of King Crimson. I suggest that DGM will release a new box containing the first 4 albums plus the contents of this webside. The website is very well done. The use of hyperlinks to other info makes this very complete. Great graphics, also used as background. Thanks a lot for this effort!!! Cheers, Hans.

Godzooks!! What an extraordinary undertaking.
I am whelmed. I am quite at a loss for words. ;-)
So, for the moment, please accept my heartfelt if bemused
congratulations and forgive me if I erm, stroll around awhile.
Very best wishes. . . and for now this rubious leaf of Gibranese.
