One slightly unusual feature of King Crimson is that every one of their studio LPs (except Beat) has had a title track. So which do you like best?

I included Beat's "Heartbeat" for the sake of completeness, and crunched multi-part songs into one.

My personal choice is "Discipline". There are several good contenders on the list, but nothing beats the wacky rhythms on that one for me.

It's a dead heat between Lizard and Islands, but I went with Lizard.

Damn you. It's between Islands and Larks'.

Well, I like Islands more than any part of Larks' but since first two parts are joined, Larks' does win.
Islands just can't stand ultimate power of first two parts put together.

I was never a big fan of KC. I tried, but their music is very weird for my likings.
Exception the first 2 albums which are very good ones!
So I voted for "The Court of the Crimson King"... Smile

Thank you. :)
