5 stars This is hands down my favorite Crimson album. I love how this album is so dark and this is crimson at their best no doubt. The album kicks off with Red a metal instrumental that is just heart pounding, a great opener. Fallen Angel is a also a a great Hard track, great sax playing on this track also. One More Red Nightmare displays some great drumming by Bill Bruford, a very solid track. Providence is the weakest track on the album but that does not mean it is a bad song lots of noise at the start of the song the it builds up to great bass playing by John Wetton. Next is Starless a classic Crimson Track , this song is just amazing 12 minutes of great Art Rock at its best. The Wetton era was the best time for King Crimson and this was the last album Fripp, Wetton,and Bruford created. 5 stars a masterpiece any Art Rock fan should own this.
