Yeah, you know, Rick Wakeman... the... keyboardist

Meant Jon Anderson. My bad yo.

I was listening to more King Crimson lately and I almost forgot how much I like Cirkus. Really cool track.

I have several of their albums:

In the Court of the Crimson King
In the Wake of Poseidon
Lizard
Larks Tongues in Aspic
Starless and Bible Black
Red
Discipline
Thrak
The Construkction of Light

After I find a copy of "Islands" I plan on tracking down the rest of the 80s releases and then the more recent releases. I saw a great concert DVD of their recent work called "Eyes Wide Open." Bits from it pop up on YouTube all the time. Their sound has morphed into a more progressive metal these days.

As far as cool tracks go, I've really fallen in love with Epitaph from In the Court of the Crimson King.

Great, great band. Almost all of their albums are lovely, but I definitely feel that Larks' Tongues In Aspic is my favourite. The first part of the title track is a mindshredder. Robert Fripp is an amazing gutiarist, and overall I don't think there have been many bands where each musician holds such a high standard and virtuosity on his instrument as in King Crimson.

"Court of the Crimson King" and "Red" were my first two KC albums, though they vary greatly

Or, you know, you could download them.

It's this new thing that might be catching on.

**** YES

King Crimson are the greatest band of all time.

My fav songs are probably Lizard, One More Red Nightmare and Cat Food...Oh damn, I forgot Cadence and Cascade, Red, Epitaph, I Talk To The Wind...The list goes on. They actually have too many good songs to choose.

Good starter album would be In The Court Of The Crimson King.

I got some of mine online. Lizard, Islands, Wake of Poseidon, Red, Power to Believe, and probably any of the future ones I get.
