Due to the popularity of the other two polls i created with this format ive decided to do another, this time with KC. for me, red beats all these out, with larks right behind, and the rest right behind that.
Its simple, its genius, and most importantly, its Tangerine Dream.

I can't honestly say I prefer one over the other, except for Discipline (great album, but a little behind from the others in this list). It all depends on what I'm in the mood for, since all are different in this way, so I would give it a tie.

Hard to choose. I would say Court and Red are equally good and better than the other ones.

In the Court of the Crimson King is one of the greatest albums of all time.
Check out my music on my bandcamp!

In the Court for me (I believe it will win). I think it will be Red, but Providence weaks other very strong entity. No bad song in Court.
 
Really love all the Crimson seventies albums, others not bad too, but just donīt achieve the greatness of those seventies albums.

Of these: Itchycock, though it is not my overall favourite KC album. It hard to tell which is better: Red, LTiA or Lizard, but I favour all three of these over Discipline.

Red > Court > Larks > Lizard > Discipline. The first two are practically level-pegging though.

Can't choose. It could be either Red, In the Court, or Larks' on any given day...

1) ITCOTCK (on many days, I'd put Lizard at #1 & Court at #2...today Court get's the vote)
2) Lizard (took a long time to fully appreciate this album...now it's the one I listen to the most)
3) Larks (much prefer the '74 live versions of these songs)
4) Red (Providence is a boat anchor...should have chosen one of the better '74 improvs like "The Golden Walnut" or "Is There Life Out There?"
5) Discipline has it's moments, but is far behind the rest...

That's exactly how I feel about these.

ITCOTCK.....will always be my personal favorite by KC (probably the album that set me on the prog path in spring of 1970., even though overall Red and LTIA are 'better' albums .

One does nothing yet nothing is left undone.
