5 stars As perfect as any prog album I've ever heard. The watershed title track alone has inspired no less than two generations of musicians to following in Crimson's footsteps. The album "Red" was one of my very first exposures to King Crimson and I still feel its impact after all this time as this is an album I return to time & again. Those of us who have had the pleasure of hearing the 40th anniversary remaster of "Red" know that in terms of sound quality this album doesn't even begin to sound dated. Despite the intensity of the title track and "One More Red Nightmare", the album's highlight to me will always remain "Starless". This track (in my humble opinion) defines the true scope of this particular King Crimson lineup...which in my heart will always be the greatest Crim lineup ever assembled.
