King Crimson: Red

Drawing a line under the first major period of King Crimson, Red is an album that has stood the test of time. Catchy, yet experimental. Muscular, yet tender. Full of the tensions of a band on the edge, but with all the prowess of true musicians who had been honing their craft for years.

Red is somehow pure King Crimson, managing to be utterly unique in their back catalogue, even as it reflects and builds upon the brilliance of their acclaimed debut.
