Haven't done a poll in a while, so here is a quickie.

These two pieces mar otherwise brilliant albums for me.  Of the two, which do you prefer?

I don't think either mars anything, but then this is only my opinion. In any case, I voted for "Moonchild", which has always held a sort of odd appeal for me.

I think "Providence", but I like both tracks.

Maybe I have a slight bias because the track is named after my hometown.  Wink

Providence being bad is news to me.

Moonchild's infamous status is, instead, undeserved. It's brilliant. Gets my vote, too.

"Providence" does not bring down Red at all and creates a great sense of darkness and paranoia.

"Moonchild" is one of the most boring w**kfests I've ever heard.

Providence is brilliant. My favorite piece on that album.

Moonchild is alright.

Having heard (way too) many improvs from 73-74 line-up, I still don't get why they chose the Providence one over other (imho) far more brilliant instant compositions. That said, I find this noodling a tad more interesting than the one on Moonchild. But then, Moonchild has a song in there, somewhere. Hard choice. Good thing the 2009 remaster of ITCOTCK cuts out a few minutes of the clatter.

No vote, really...

King Crimson's debut is not just symphonic and Red is not just dark/hard prog.

Also, they can be compared.  Also, we're not considering whole albums. Also, I have half a mind to spam the thread to which you linked in a similar fashion, but I will not do that.

Those two are songs that I least like from each album, but I do get enjoyment out of both, more so with Moonchild.

Providence is the highlight of a basically decent album, Moonchild one of the many highlights of a great, great record.

Providence is a great track on a peerless album, whilst Moonchild is, to me, a slight distraction on an otherwise great LP.


In Lazland, life is transient. Prog is permanent.
