Some pretty great musicians in that band, but I haven't heard anything that interests me thus far.

KC are probably my favourite band of all time.

Epitaph live is godly.

Fav songs would be...Cadence and Cascade, Epitaph, 21st century...acutall all that album is bad ass...Same with Red. I take it back, there are too many great songs to choose from.

Love the insane piano on Cat Food as well

Cat Food is one very groovy song I listen too quite a bit. Cadence and Cascade also has some very nice very soothing guitar melodies. Two of my favourite songs off of 'Poseidon'.

Instrumentally it's cool (besides the slap bass), but Greg Lake is the only one in my mind to do the song justice

Yeah, the voice is ehh. I do like the guitar tone, though.

Off topic... I don't really think there's such a thing as a "perfect album" but Lark's Tongues comes pretty darn close in my opinion. There's good riffing that you can actually hear, light ballads that are pretty interesting harmonically, more "ambient" sections, and fantastic buildups. Not to mention the final outro, which is one of the best I can think of.

Bit pointless, but I just had to let out how much I like it

Indeed.

That is my favorite song from In the Wake of Poseidon.

Hey guys,

I have only heard King Crimson a couple of times before and I want to get into them. Any suggestions on what albums to buy? I love prog-rock and these guys seem to be highly touted.

I don't think you can go wrong with anything from the beginning through Red, and Discipline is pretty good too (Discipline was the next album after Red).

So my suggestion is: start with In the Court of the Crimson King, their debut, and work your way forward chronologically.

I only have 3 songs, "I talk to the wind", "Epitaph", and "in the court of", and they are all beautiful, such lovley sound... it's the kind of thing that lets you almost imagine perfection. This thread has reminded me to get some more.

I don't really go for prog-wierness in lyrical terms however, but the music is good enough to make up for that.

I agree 100% with litterally everything you just said. Cat Food is number two in plays on my iPod, second behind "Still.. You Turn Me On" by ELP. Two great songs.

^I wish I could listen to King Crimson on my iPod more often though. All the volume levels are really low, so I have to crank it to hear the nuances and details, not to mention sound leaks out of my open air headphones.

I mentioned this before in a Emerson, Lake, and Plamer thread, but Still... You Turn Me On reminds me of Days Go By by Dirty Vegas.

King Crimson is one of my favorite bands ever. That's why when I saw this at some local record store I nearly shat my pants:




This is the first studio record that Robert Fripp appeared on. I don't know if I should even open the plastic wrap because this is such a seriously rare collector's item.

If only you could upload it to your computer without removing the wrapping.

Give the techies and bootleggers about 20 minutes, and you'll probably have a way to do that.
