KING CRIMSON In The Court Of The Crimson King

King Crimson-In the Court of the Crimson King

Well, this is going to be controversial.

I enjoy King Crimson, they have been a leading figure in the creation of both progressive rock and metal. 'Starless and Bible Black' and 'Red' are among some of the finest examples of their sound that has influenced so many, and they even have great recent albums like 'The Power to Believe'. Unfortunately, their debut isn't such a fine example.

Now I appreciate the effect this album had on the music industry, it really stood-out. The album begins with the song I enjoy the most, '21st Century Schizoid Man'. It combines saxophone, jazzy drumming, chaotic heavy guitar, and dark lyrics in a surprisingly amazing mix. The next song 'I Talk to the Wind' would of been a nice relaxing interlude if it didn't drag on for so long. The song never really changes, just stays the same for six minutes. 'Epitaph' is yet another song that would of been okay if it didn't drag on for so long. It doesn't change other then the bridge until the end when some distorted guitar comes in. 'Moonchild' doesn't drag on, it's a very experimental song, but it doesn't really have any beat or melody to it. If you enjoy improvisational jazz you'll probably enjoy it, but I find it pretty boring. The finale title track is the only other song I enjoy. It has parts that I don't like, such as the improvisational jazz parts and the flute sections, but other then that it's a pretty good song with a great melodic chorus and good instrumentation.

The lyrics are certainly one of the stronger points of the album, being about political and social themes.

I need to say something about the disgusting cover art. I see that this album cover gets as much praise as the album itself, if not more. I can't see why, it's just a close-up of a fleshy, screaming, face that is way too detailed. I can even see inside the nostrils. It's one of the worst rock album covers I've ever seen, I find it very disgusting.

Overall, I feel that this album is overrated. I wouldn't call it bad, but a perfect word to describe my feelings for it would be: Boring. It's probably just my personal music tastes, but I find King Crimson's later efforts much more enjoyable. Like I said before, I appreciate it's legacy to rock music and it was important in developing progressive rock. I just can't seem to enjoy it much.

Hope you found this review helpful.

King Crimson-Starless and Bible Black

Truly an underrated album, Starless and Bible Black has to be my favorite King Crimson album. This album shows King Crimson at one of their most experimental moments, even more so then 'Larks Tongues In Aspic' in my opinion.

The music follows most of what was explored on 'Aspic', in taking various percussion, heavy guitar, and Avant-garde compositions. There is a similar amount of classical instrumentation as in the previous album, and it still retains classical composition. The album begins with some shorter hard rocking tracks, 'The Great Deceiver' and 'Lament', the latter being my favorite of the two. 'The Great Deceiver' has a really catchy beginning but soon gets slower and really strong bass. 'Lament' starts out slow with traditional prog guitar work, but soon gets heavier with the drums and bass playing very well together. John Wetton's vocals are also very strong on this song.

The instrumentals on this album are among their best for me, with 'We'll Let You Know' being one of my favorite instrumentals of all time. The bass is at it's strongest in this song, with some very catchy bass/guitar riffs. Once the drums come in, the song really gets powerful. The classical-infused 'Trio' is very relaxing, and sort of gives you a nice change of pace temporarily. Of course, there is also the 11-minute masterpiece 'Fracture', with very menacing guitar throughout the song. At the end, however, driving guitar riffs come in with Bill Bruford really pounding on the drums. The classical instruments are a nice touch at the very end.

Overall, don't skip this album. It is just as essential as it's predecessor and successor. I highly recommend this album for any fan of classic prog rock, Avant-garde/experimental metal or proto-metal/hard rock.

KING CRIMSON In The Wake Of Poseidon

Poseidon is well known as having full domain of the oceans and is known as "God Of The Sea," however he is also referred to as "Earth-Shaker" because he was thought of being the cause of earthquakes as well, so I guess the title of this album refers to the aftermath of the band after the sudden success of KC's debut album and following tours which were too much for Ian McDonald and Michael Giles who soon parted ways followed by Greg Lake being seduced by Keith Emerson to form ELP. That left Robert Fripp and Peter Sinfield as the only original members after it was decided that it was pretty much Fripp's musical vision in the first place. The former members did agree to sit in as studio musicians only.

What a change from the debut. This album seems to me like a collection of leftovers and outtakes. The very first full song "Pictures Of A City" is obviously nothing more than a reworking of "21st Century Schizoid Man." One of the better pieces on the album is "The Devil's Triangle" which was inspired by Gustav Holt's "Mars: Bringer Of War" from "The Planets Suite." An ok album but too obvious that it is a half-assed reworking of the debut. Given the band's tumultuous history it's somewhat understandable and would be a mere blip in the parade of outstanding releases to come. Despite its inferiority to “In The Court....” I still find this a worthy occasional listen.

Never really thought of King Crimson as metal since most of their music is more avant-garde jazz related but I guess they did have a stake in its development with their more rockin' numbers, so here is my review from PA:

Although rock music had been becoming more progressive before this release with such artists as the Beatles, Zappa, the Moody Blues and others slowly chipping away at the damn of the progressive reservoir, it was this album that burst open the floodgates and took progressive rock music to a whole new level by stripping away the blues influence and replacing it with classical, jazz and avant-garde.

A very eclectic playlist with mostly accessible songs like “21st Century Schizoid Man” and “The Court of the Crimson King” but also included the inaccessible “Moonchild” which does seem like an exercise of tolerance at times but ultimately is an interesting piece after forcing you to change your musical mindset. A style they would go on to incorporate on future releases.

The album took the world by storm making progressive rock popular and ushering in the next golden age of music. Although it took me longer to love parts of this album than others I ultimately succumbed to its charm and have to give this album no less than 5 stars for its unadulterated brilliance, boldness and importance in musical history.

KING CRIMSON The Power To Believe

"The Power to Believe" is the 13th full-length studio album by UK progressive rock act King Crimson. The album was released through Sanctuary Records Group in March 2003. The lineup on this album features Adrian Belew on guitar, vocals and electronic percussion, Robert Fripp on guitar, Trey Gunn on Warr guitar and rubber bass and Pat Mastelotto on drums.

The music style on the album is dark and experimental progressive rock. For fans of King Crimson there are as such few surprises, but what made me happy about the music on "The Power to Believe", is the generally high quality level. Songs like "Level Five", "Eyes Wide Open" and "Elektrik" are excellent compositions. Lots of dark atmosphere in addition to the tight and as always innovative musicianship. The quality drops a bit after the really strong string of songs that open the album, but my attention never wanders and overall "The Power to Believe" comes off as a consistently high quality release.

If you ask me "The Power to Believe" is the best King Crimson album since "Discipline (1981)" and it´s highly recommendable to both fans and newcommers. If this turns out to be King Crimson´s last studio album it will make a great testimony. A 4 star (80%) rating is fully deserved.

You're reading too much into an outdated rating guideline there my friend. :P

I mean, Islands is my favourite KC album by far but I haven't rated it here because 5* says "a masterpiece of metal music" which it absolutely isn't ;)

I'm of the opinion that Lizard and Island are not very protometal at all, but the first two qualify IMO
