5 stars Red is probably one of the first metal albums ever recorded and is much better than the Symphonic albums, sorry guys the Jazzy, Metal-ish albums by King Crimson do it for me!! Heavy Guitars sounds and Jazz elements show they are will ing to progress onwards and just good Rock music by a well known Prog band.

The lenghy track can be tiresome but the closer of the album "Red" is the coolest track on the album, Heavy Metal Jazz music and all of a sudden this drony dark gothic starts then a couple of minute later we are back to squre one, until the tempo slows and the track closes to an end.

This is highly recommended, King Crimson are better as a trio: a talented crafty guitarist Fripp, a well trained professional drummer Bruford, RECOMMENDED 5/5 - 100% score scale!!!!!!!!!

craig4 | 5/5 |
