4 stars "Red" is one of the best King Crimson albums. Better than its two predecessors in my opinion, and only inferior to "In The Court Of The Crimson King". The title track is a classic and a dirge of heavy metal. Definitely one of the main highlights. There's a lot of truth that the sound here influenced the 90's band Nirvana, as at least one other reviewer has stated. It was extremely advanced for the mid-70's. Noone else rocked with such a powerful grunge rock sound at that time as far as I'm aware. This album has some fine classical/hard rock fusions as well as some great jazz-rock grooves. "Fallen Angel" and "Starless" display the best softer sounds. The last track is a personal favourite of all. Excellent album. Rating: Four very solid stars.
