I like the post 80's stuff so I'll give it a go.

Disc Five: 1995-2003

1. Dinosaur
2. People
3. One TIme
4. Into The Frying Pan
5. FraKctured
6.The World's My Oyster Soup Kitchen Floor Wax Museum
7. Elektrik
8. Level Five
9. Larks' Tongues in Aspic IV (Part One)
10. Larks' Tongues in Aspic IV (Part Two)
11. Larks' Tongues in Aspic IV (Part Three)

*ProjeKct 2, ProjeKct  X, and A Scarcity of Miracles were left out. Perhaps for a Disc 6.

** Put in LTiA IV simply because all other parts are included in previous discs. Not saying it doesn't belong, I just felt obligated... but it is my least favorite of all the parts.

I've got an actual one - The Great Deceiver.  The crims at their peak for me.  If I were to put one together I'd just duct tape all the CDs I have together. Headbanger

I have only given their 70s discography a decent chance, and not even the whole last 70s albums... so here goes, The Best of King Crimson 1969-1973:
 
CD 1: In the Court of Poseidon
1. 21st Century Schizoid Man
2.Pictures of a City
3. I Talk to the Wind
4. Epitaph
5. Moonchild
6. In the Court of the Crimson King
 
CD 2 & 3: Lizard's Tongues on Islands
CD 2
1. Lark's Tongues in Aspic (part 1)
2. Book of Saturday
3. Lady of the Dancing Water
4. Formentera Lady
5. Ladies of the Road
6. Exiles
7. The Letters
CD 3
8. Indoor Games
9. Lark's Tongues in Aspic (part 2)
10. Lizard
11. Islands
 
I actually like these combinations more than I thought I would when I started to write. Especially throwing in Lady of the Dancing Water along with the other ladies and the transitions on CD 3 should work great. Gotta try this list sometime. And no, I'm no big fan of "In the Wake of Poseidon", it's a decent album but that doesn't get you anywhere as a King Crimson album imo.
Leave the past to burn,
At least that's been his own
