'74 lineup or '81 lineup for King Crimson. Who ruled?

*head explodes*

Bruford Cross Fripp Wetton versus Belew Bruford Fripp Levin... that is nigh impossible a choice to make.

1974 without question. I don't care for the Talking Head-era KC as much.

74, they were not always on but when they were, OUCH! 
I never post anything anywhere without doing more than basic research, often in depth.

'74 by a mile...I always wished the '81 version had followed their original plan and named the band Discipline Wink

74!! IMO, you can't beat Buford and Wetton's thunderous bass!
A GREAT YEAR FOR PROG!!!

From the '80s: One great album and two just okay. 
From the '74 lineup (including Lark's Tongue): Two great albums and one mind blowing masterpiece.

Need I say more?

like both lineups, but FOR NOW (that'll probably not change)the Larks' lineup kicks some major f**king ass here. so they get my vote.

No contest. The '81 lineup stands for one of the most overrated albums in prog history.

I'll join in the head exploding.

I'll give a vote to the underdogs.
