Agreed but the review I posted is worth a read, especially for KC fans.

I'll read it when i get home. I posted before i saw that because lizard is one of the greatest albums in existence. I listened to it, coincidentally, last night.  bacon.gif

I just ordered this from Amazon. After reading that, I'm twice as hyper about getting it.  new_thumbsupsmileyanim.gif

Amen brother.

im trying to find other 70s prog albums that are "evil"

best band to come to mind are :Van der graaf generator.

wub.gif  wub.gif  wub.gif x2
On progarchives, both VDGG and KC are considered to be eclectic prog. I guess that's the best prog there is, along with symphonic  wub.gif

The Thrak box is curdling the parts of my brain that were functioning.

I was tempted to get the boxed set, as THRAK is one of my most appreciated (and played) albums.  But it was a lot more than I've ever spent on any one recording.  So I got the surround mix format. Would be interested in knowing what other goodies that were in the box would be of interest from those sessions.  I had Vroom and Vroom Vroom at the time of release, but think they didn't make the cut when I dumped a bunch of discs/dvds a few years ago.  I don't recall the Vroom takes to be anything special.  What are you enjoying most from the boxed set?

[as a side note: I don't really care for the new mix, so it's only been played a handful of times before I decided I will just continue to play the original]

I was introduced to King Crimson during my first year of college. In the Court of the Crimson King... It was love at first listen!  I've seen them 3 times; once in Seattle during the THRAK tour in 1995 and twice more recently when they played a ton of the '70s best from Red, Starless and Larks' Tongues...  I've also seen The Tony Levin Band once,  Adrian Belew four times and Robert Fripp three times; once when he opened for Porcupine Tree doing SoundScapes and twice with his crew of Crafty Guitarists... the first of those was in about 1990 in Madison, then last June, here in Detroit. The Detroit show of The Orchestra of Crafty Guitarists was performed in a Catholic church that was built in the late 1800s.  It is a beautiful building and the sound of 50 acoustic guitars inside was spectacular.  The Sept, 2014, King Crimson show at The Barrymore Theater in Madison, remains one of the most deeply moving live shows I've ever attended... Here are a few photos of the recent venues... Rock ON!

Wanted to listen to "Beat" but instead I found this:



Something about that early 80s line up...

The first time I saw King Crimson was on the Thrak double-trio tour.  I had already been a fan of the classic stuff and the 80's stuff and the Thrak album was right up my alley.  I was blown away.  I recall a great review of the show I was at (Orlando;  I see it is available for download!) which included the line: "Levin, grinding holes in my chest; Fripp, insane."  lol.

I'll also never forget Adrian Belew coming out to perform a drum trio ("Prism") with Bill and Pat - all 3 on gong bass drums.  They were like prog-taiko drummers.

That's a great show.

Though I've not ever seen a bad one.

I have made plans to see the latest 8 member version of the band 3 times in 18 days over the coming Summer.  I'll go the the Saturday, Oakland show on June 17, the next Saturday show in Denver, and then sit in the front row for the Toronto show at Massey Hall on July 5.  This is a good excuse to burn up my points to fly places where I know people and have another excuse to visit anyway.  The King Crimson show is just icing on the cake...  This is going to be a good musical Summer!  Rock ON!

Great band and one of the defining bands in the prog rock genre. In fact if it wasn't for them progressive rock would probably be different in the same way that heavy metal would be different without Black Sabbath. Anyway, I really like Red, Lark's tongues and the first album. All their stuff(that I've heard which is all the early albums)are very good. I like Discipline too.

Holy friggin' smokes!



Fripp seems to be having fun here. He actually MOVES!

Fripp begins to let the demons out 13:45.
14:54-15:21: they're out!

Sartori in Tangier is another intense one. Whew!

The whole band is firing on all cylinders.
Tony Levin's playing seems to kick them into high gear.

Great stuff. Thoroughly enjoyed this one.

Love KC. Probably more a fan of the post-Islands version of the band, from around Larks Tongues through VROOOM, but they have interesting stuff in all eras of the group.
