King Crimson - Red

'Red' is the seventh studio album by progressive rock band King Crimson. 'Red' marks the last album of the John Wetton-era, and the last King Crimson album until 1981's 'Discipline'. I don't think I've made it any secret that I loathe Robert Fripp with a passion. To me it seems he's stuck in the past, and refuses to accept that it isn't 1974 anymore with his opinions on streaming and the like. However, credit is due when credit is due, and that credit being 'Red' is a pretty decent album.

The opening instrumental title track is easily my favorite from the album, keeping a nice hard rocking riff throughout the song yet having a menacing bridge with various string instruments. It goes on a bit too long in my opinion, as it doesn't change much, but a great song nonetheless. I would really enjoy 'Fallen Angel' if it wasn't for the saxophone which honestly ruins the song for me. Once the song builds up, the guitar has a nice dark vibe and John Wetton gives some great vocals while singing 'Fall-en Ang-el'. Unfortunately the saxophone just sounds out of place, disrupting the dark atmosphere of the song. I'm not a fan of brass instruments, but I do know that they can fit in rock songs as heard in Heart's 'Even It Up' or Gentle Giant's 'Peel the Paint'. However, The saxophone isn't really an instrument that can fit into a melancholy song like 'Fallen Angel'.

'One More Red Nightmare' is my other favorite from the album, and is only slightly ruined for me with the saxophone. Like the opening instrumental, it opens with a nice rocking riff with some impressive drumming from Bill Bruford. Next up we have the avant-garde 'Providence', which I believe to be the most annoying song on the album. While towards the end there's some nice bass from Wetton, there's just too slow of a build up and guitar noodling that drives me nuts. It honestly seems too "art for art's sake" to me as there is no real rhythm, structure, or melody that you can follow along to, but I suppose if you're a fan of improvisational music you may enjoy it. Finally comes 'Starless', which is often called the highlight of the album, yet I find to be one of the weaker songs. It takes way too long to build up, taking more then half the song, and once it does it's an okay fast jam but nothing mind-blowing.

Overall, I'm probably the only one who thinks that King Crimson's best work didn't come until recent years with the post-THRAK albums, but this is certainly one of the better albums of their 'classic' era. While not being to my tastes, I can see why this is a widely regarded masterpiece. The musicianship is excellent and it was an influence on the rock and metal world, this is just one highly-rated album that I don't enjoy much. Hope you found this review helpful.

KING CRIMSON In The Wake Of Poseidon

I'll start by saying that I love King Crimson, and they are definitely a top 10 band for this music obsessive. However, they should be considered a metal-related group under the guidelines of this site. IMO they didn't actively start incorporating metal influences until Lark's Tongues In Aspic. These considerations don't reduce the quality of the In The Wake Of Poseidon album. All the songs here are good ones, although initially it seems a little ridiculous to write a song about "Cat Food"!

My personal favorites are "Pictures of a City" and "In the Wake of Poseidon". Some folks criticize this album for sounding too much like King Crimson's debut, but I disagree. There isn't anything on In The Court OF The Crimson King that sounds like "Picture of a City." IMO it's definitely more jazzy and less aggressive than "21st Century Schizoid Man." Only the low "metal quotient" of this album, and the idea that this isn't as groundbreaking as KC's debut, prevents me from giving this more than 4 stars.

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 · Non-Metal

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.

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

The first 4 album are under Proto - Metal?? What the?? I can understand the John Wetton era but the first 4? You are surely joking

I agree, The Power to Believe is definitely a metal-based album.
