When the mood strikes, yes, there is no doubt that King Crimson rules.

All hail the Mighty Crim!

indeed, of all the albums from the original incarnation of the band (1969-1974), islands is the one throwaway.  all of the rest are well worth owning and most of them are brilliant...

Astonishing group, every incarnation.
I have every album, on CD and vinyl.
My most prized possessions are a mint vinyl copy of Absent Lovers and a half-speed vinyl master of Lark's Tongue In Aspic.

Got the 4 cd The Great Deceiver during the week.

Carlsberg don't do live albums but if they did.............

Mind-blowing.

my "most prized possessions"

are In the court of the crimson king shirt.

and a bootleg called In support of their satanic majesties

they opened for Rolling stones in 1969, great cd with early songs that are not in the first album and most of the first album songs..

I saw a guy at the Sacramento Rush concert with that T-shirt on.

When he walked by I said "awesome shirt man!".  He said "I know."

true.

they just dont make those kind of albums anymore sad.gif

first time i cried from a song was Epitaph, the only bad part of the album is the improvisation part on Moonchild, i like improvisation but its way to boring and long.

I have a particularly fond memory of KC.

It was in July 2005, and I was about to go to Italy for two weeks, so decided to buy the Q magazine prog-rock special. I read this religiously for two weeks, and had found out alot about bands that i'd never even heard of. Apart from Rush, which was the reason I bought it.

Anyway, I was so captivated by the King Crimson article. The words 'Evil music' enticed me. The day after the plane landed I rushed into my local record store, itching to buy In The Court of the Crimson King. They had it in (hurray!). Now, two and a half years later, I can honestly say that my musical life changed because of that album. I purchased a couple of Yes albums, but they didn't have the same effect. Hearing '...Crimson King' for the first time still remains one of my best musical memories ever.

Put simply, without this record, I would have just liked hard rock. But it really did change my life; my musical inspirations, and actual life at the time. It made want to be intelligent, be different. I can honestly say I may not be in university right now if I'd never bought that album.

And that, Ladies and gentlemen, is why King Crimson rules.
