Shakespeare
4 stars Red has been widely recognized as Crimson's greatest 70s output, and often their overall best album. It's definitely a fantastic album, but not perfect my any means.

Starless is a personal essential, and the other tracks are memorable. The rockers are very well done, but sometimes repetitive and (towards the end) demanding. The Crimson feel is back after it took a leave on 'Starless and Bible Black'. It's got classic Crimson experimental partly-improvised segments, catchy riffs, and really great feel and instrumental skill. From the first note of the somewhat simple opener to the last note of the emotional, dark thrill ride of Starless, this album captivates, intrigues and rocks out.

Shakespeare | 4/5 |
