KING CRIMSON Red

voila_la_scorie
I'll admit right up front that King Crimson has yet to really sink in for me. I have four albums now, and none of them move me to the point that I feel that I love them and that I can listen to them any time from front to back. Strangely enough though, each year that I have bought a King Crimson album there has been one song that has made it into my top ten most listened to songs purchased in that year. Since 2012, I have been making a playlist for all my purchases of each year and at the end of the year I can check to see which songs got the most play. In 2012 one song was "One More Red Nightmare" from this album here. In 2013 it was "Larks' Tongues in Aspic Part One" and in 2014 it was "Thela Hun Ginjeet" from "Discipline". So even though I still don't get King Crimson like some people do, I can find something to love from each album I've bought so far.

"Red" was my second acquisition after the classic debut. "In the Court of the Crimson King" still leaves me wondering. I like "21st Century Schizoid Man" and the title track, but the rest of the album hasn't yet sunk in. So, what was it that prompted me to get "Red"? One was the reviews that I read that said "Red" had lots of good proto-metal on it. I'm a big fan of late sixties and early seventies heavy metal, or what they call these days "proto-metal", so that was a strong selling point for me. But more than that is the appearance of Bill Bruford on this album. I had recently been listening carefully to his drumming with Yes, especially on the first album and "The Yes Album" and I wanted more.

Now I said that I haven't really been able to get into King Crimson and until the other night, "Red" was no exception. I loved "One More Red Nightmare" for almost everything about it. I don't like that sound that resembles an electronic handclap but the heavy guitar rocks and Bill Bruford gives such a fantastic performance here. Even John Wetton's vocal performance is actually quite suitable. I say this because one thing I do not like about "Red" and "Larks' Tongues" is Wetton's singing. He doesn't strike me as having mastered control of his voice with King Crimson. And that might be the main reason why the two KC albums of the seventies that I own have not left me in spasms of joy.

But wait! I did say until the other night I could not get into King Crimson albums. The other night I gave this album my full attention and working around the vocal performances that sometimes made me wince ("Fallen Angel" and "Starless and Bible Black") I found that there was some excellent music and very cool sounds to enjoy. Of course the title track, an instrumental, is easy for me to like because of the heavy guitar and Bruford's drumming. A great start! "Fallen Angel" might not be so bad except for the vocals. A weak track for me though I'll admit the music is pretty good.

I've already sung praises for "One More Red Nightmare" but I'll say again, Bruford's drumming is his best post Yes performance that I have heard. "Providence" actually was a third choice for me because of where the music gets to after 4:50. Up to then there is a slow building of scritchy scratchy violin, random percussion bits, some bass rumbles and hiccoughs, and a general feeling that the musicians are all playing extremely remotely from each other and just sending out signals to locate each other in deep space, working slowly towards getting together to finally actually make music. When this happens after 4:50, the effect is a great highlight of the album. John Wetton's bass and Bill Bruford's drumming really make this track. Robert Fripp adds some feedback and distortion and there's more violin and a bit of flute in parts, but I love the music mostly for Wetton and Bruford.

"Starless and Bible Black" I had written off as another semi-ballad with Wetton's unimpressive vocals; however, I found that as the song gets moving along the music becomes really captivating. There's some great stuff happening there. As a result of my discoveries, I have come to think of this album not only as a remarkable piece of work for its reputation as one, but I have come to actually feel it's a remarkable piece of work, though more so as a prog album than a proto-metal album.

Why not a full four stars? Well, there's Wetton's vocals which for me at least have not come into full bloom yet. And in "Providence" the 4:50 of waiting for the musicians to coalesce their individual squawks, peeps, patters and rumbles is actually a bit long unless one is in the mood to have the patience to let it develop. I understand what they were doing. But it can sometimes seem like what I call "being weird for the sake of weirdness". But that's King Crimson, isn't it?

KING CRIMSON Epitaph / 21st Century Schizoid Man

What an odd single this is! The album it comes from, In The Court Of The Crimson King, is rightly considered one of the milestones in the 60-plus year history of rock music. However, this "Epitaph/21st Century Schizoid Man" single was released 7 years after the album. Why would the record company do that?

This is great music and I love both songs; only "21st Century Schizoid Man", which is half of this single, could be considered metal-related. It's still a great song, way ahead of its time. King Crimson should definitely be considered proto-metal, so only the issue of whether this single really belongs on a metal website tempers my final star rating. After much deliberation, I decided on 3 1/2 stars.

KING CRIMSON VROOOM

EP · 1994 · Metal Related

This EP, for those who aren't regular followers of King Crimson, consists mostly of tracks that appeared on their 1994 full album THRAK. That album introduced the double trio version of KC: two guitarists, two bass players, and two drummers. I love every incarnation of King Crimson, and this EP Vroom is excellent. This may be King Crimson at their most aggressive, so metal-related is a very apt description of this music.

My favorite tracks here are "Sex Sleep Eat Drink Dream", "Thrak", and "One Time". I like King Crimson least when their music is the most unstructured, as it is on "When I Say Stop, Continue." However, that criticism doesn't apply to most of VROOM. IF you know the THRAK album, you already know most of these songs. This fine EP is still an excellent addition to your music collection.

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.

Feel free to comment!

KING CRIMSON In The Wake Of Poseidon

Album · 1970 · Proto-Metal

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.

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

As for album placements, don't forget that collabs can question the team via the CZ and non-collabs can post their concerns here: http://www.metalmusicarchives.com/forum/forum_topics.asp?FID=60&title=report-errors-omissions-here

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
