King Crimson invented and perfected grunge in the early 70s.

Nirvana just watered it down and made it more accessible for the masses. It was still pretty great though.
>>
That album literally sounds nothing like grunge
>>
>>53135683
Love this album but maybe aside from Red, how is it Grunge?
>>
That album has prototypical elements of math rock, prog metal, and even noise rock, but I don't see grunge at all.

Ogg invented and perfected music in the early stone age.

King Crimson just watered it down and made it more accessible for the masses. It was still pretty great though.
>>
I think some music journalist somewhere along the line compared 21stCSM to grunge and it kinda stuck around in OP's mind
>>
?

shut up

amazing album but its not grunge lol its more like the first prog metal album (inb4 a /mu/tant shows me some obscure band that had the same sound 3 years before king crimson)
>>
>>53137151
I wouldn't really call it metal, but it's certainly heavy and grating
>>
>>53135683
nice rym meme review

Comparing Nirvana to KC is like comparing film score to an actual composer

>>53135683

>King Crimson will never make another album
>>
>>53137450
starless is incredible. its pretty amazing thinking about all the shit fripp accomplished in his career
>>
>>53137151
Larks Tongues in Aspic which came out 3 years earlier by them has some even heavier shit
>>
lol that's not Neil Young
>>
Isn't grunge just shit angsty shoe gaze?
>>
Cheap Trick invented and perfected grunge in the late 70s.

Nirvana just watered it down and made it more accessible for the masses. It was still pretty great though.
>>
>>53137450
I know that feel.

The second of the three acts of Starless is one of the most ingenious pieces of music I've ever heard.
>>
>>53137676
Indeed.

The man's a genius.
>>
>>53137707
>tfw KC are so forward thinking they were ahead of themselves in terms of pioneering a genre
>>53137508
But Fripp just wrote three new tracks anon and they're touring again. Plus, the live album is out this week, covering their 2014 American tour.
>>
>>53137450
seriously, i love how he comes up with one of the most beautiful and hauting riffs i've ever heard, and then does something completely different without relying on that riff. even if he did, it would be a great song, but KC is so great because they go the extra mile
>>
>>53138490
Indeed. Fripp is anything but a slacker. High-maintenance as fuck, but I'll be damned if he doesn't get results.

Sad that several former King Crimson members kinda hate him.
>>
Grunge is just Pixies and Touch&Go artists for angsty plebs.
>>

Providence is underrated as fuck
>>
>>53139910
It's the worst in the album and, yet, a great song.
>>
>>53139910
I think most of the track list gets overshadowed by Starless. I always really loved Fallen Angel, perfect KC ballad along with Model Man.
>>
>>53140005
Starless is really just one level above their other songs. I love the drumming on One More Red Nightmare, I don't think I've ever seen this song being discussed here.
>>
>>53139910
Oh yeah. I think it's their best improvised jam session on a studio album. Even better than Trio(even though that was in front of an audience).
>>
What the fuck op, Pearl Jam obviously invented grundge dumass...
>>
>>53140029
The drums on One More Red Nightmare are phenomenal. It is one sexy song.
>>
>>53140029
Yeah as a drummer that track is just perfect. And of course it has the legendary unnamed dumpster cymbal, that predicated so much of kit playing.
>>
>>53139910
eh, the violin intro sounds so kitschy
>>
>>53138045
tfw Nirvana is kinda like an edgy Cheap Trick with more basic guitar parts

Eh. I'll just listen to Big Blacks cover of He's a Whore instead.
>>
>no one ever gives Islands the praise it deserves
>>
>>53140623
It's a qt song. This is their qtest:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RiwUxxk-iO0
>>
>>53140623
It's the best of their first 4 albums but gen II KC was their peak
>>
>>53140623
His house seems rustic and comfy.
>>
>this woman made one of the most serious guys in music smile a lot
>you'll never have love like this

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=64VGyoIyBgc
>>
>>53140623
thats because Islands is trash, besides like >>53140720 said, Gen II with Wetton and Bruford was the GOAT
>>
>>53141236
why is it trash?
>>
>>53141270
I could only subjectively tell you that I don't like a single song on the album. I dislike formentera and ladies of the road the most, but from an objective standpoint I feel that their other works are simply better
>>
>>53141350
fair enough. I do feel Islands one of their most cohesive albums, so i ask you to give it a new chance sometimes. whenever you feel ready
>>
>>53141161
I never thought Bob was this chill.
>>
>>53141161
he seems like an aspie
>>
>>53142291
he is. who cares. all great musicians are aspies
>>
>>53142291
Based on what?
>>
>>53141161
This shit is so corny
>>
>>53141350

dude, ladies of the road is an awesome song. wtf.
