>>61892448 >What, you prefer ZOOM, faggot? Is that supposed to be a joke or something? 1. Discipline 2. Larks' Tongues in Aspic 3. Starless and Bible Black 4. Red 5. Islands 6. In the Court of the Crimson King Although it's pretty hard to order them accurately because most of them are on a really similar level of quality.
>>61892518 LZIV is about as good as ITCOTCK if not even more consistent. Also my dad has a bunch of King Crimson albums.
ITCOTCK is probably their best tied with Red. There isn't a prog album that's beings as much versatility as ITCOTCK. Don't listen to the plebs who think otherwise they try to have a different opinion for the sake of being different instead of looking at the music itself.
>>61894918 *tied with Discipline my bad. While ITCOTCK offers versatility particularly in song types, Discipline offers a really interesting style which is a combo of the prog KC are known for, Talking Heads style approach to funk, and Frippertronics (which before this album Fripp had only fucked with on other artists//his solo work.)
>>61894918 I would agree, although looking back, I think discipline is really marvelous in its own way, if for nothing other than an examination of how to infuse two very disparate genres (prob and new wave, obviously).
>>61894933 It's true though. There isn't another KC album--no wait there really isn't another prog album period that brings the kind of versatility in structure that ITCOTKC does.
1. 21st Century Schizoid Man - Riffy as fuck akin to metal (most songs on Red are basically this) combined with a bit of jazz 2. I Talk To The Wind - The flute/clarinet/keys in this song is akin to the psychedelic stuff happening in the 60s while the music itself is very much classical music inspired (Larks' era stuff is like this basically) 3. Epitaph - A prog song with a lot of emotion which in uncommon in prog which is too busy tackling larger than life subjects. Sorta akin to Robert Wyatt's Rock Bottom which is loved because of being emotional as fuck prog. Also made the heavy mellotron usage in prog a thing. 4. Moonchild - Like I said, it sounds like a jam/jazz section in space. Very excellent usage of stereo sounds that were just new at the time. 5. In The Court Of The Crimson King - Puts everything above in one song. The main riff is very hard rock/metal like 21st Century Schizoid Man. The Return Of The Fire Witch section is like I Talk To The Wind with the flute and the organ. The song has hella mellotron like Epitaph. The Dance Of The Puppets section has jazzy jam approach to it like Moonchild.
>>61895052 Yeah I meant that it tied with Discipline not Red like I said >>61894970 all KC albums after ITCOTKC offered one aspect or another of ITCOTKC, but Discipline completely changed the game
