Are "Red", "In the Court" or "Lizard" overrated ? 
In addition, Fripp's influence on modern music is far beyond the progressive circle. 
This question is a nonsense for me.

Indeed, in fact I would say he is arguably underated. I suspect many young folk listen to music that he has greatly influenced without even knowing who he was. I suspect this may have also been the case in the later half of the 70's. His name pops up all over the place; in relation to all manner of artists including Daryl Hall, David Bowie, The Orb, Future Sound of London..That pr!ck Kanye West even sampled KC.

RF is terrible underrated, in the about 40 years I have known about him, have hardly seen anything about him outside strictly prog circles, compared to almost anyone in (Rock) music, he is in the shades.

That's only three albums out of the many. In totality, yes, Fripp is terribly overrated. How can anyone believe that King Crimson is better than other bands when half of the time it has been disbanded? And then I'm not even talking about the lack of melodies.

That's a silly question, how can be one of the founders of Prog Rock overrated?Confused It's similar as if you were asking whether Mozart, Bach or perhaps Louis Armstrong are overrated...

That's precisely one of Fripp's important contributions to rock music, showing that there is more to rock music than just melody, which has been the only concern of much rock music for a long time (of course he is not the only one but has been a key player in this).
 
As for KC's discontinuity, who cares? better to take a break or reform than releasing poor stuff.

Never quite understood the love of Fripp/king Crimson.
 
IMHO - Yes, Genesis, Floyd,Tull, Camel, Caravan, VDGG, Rush etc blow them out of the water.
 
But I appreciate that they are well respected here- just not my thing.
