Although I prefer KC's sound especially around the Red era, CTTE has not a single weak moment, one of the very few albums that shines through every moment.

Red has Providence.

Red by miles.

Just an observation, no offense: it seems you're comparing KC to everything out there wanting it to lose against something. I'm not sure if that's... really mature. Definitely not trying to start a fight or something.

I like Providence better than any track on Close to the Edge. And I love Close to the Edge (not as the others do, but I appreciate it).

Never thought I'd heard that in a lifetime Oo Actually never thought anyone could love this track (or The Mincer, for example, which kinda has imo the same status as Providence on a different album, that of a half-failed experimentation (to my ears) )

Close to the Edge. Not the best album of all time, but excellent
 
Red ain't to my taste at all.

Red, if only because it contains "Starless."

Red has its flaws, as most KC albums do. CTTE knows no flaws.

^ This is just an opinion of one stupid-ass Russian who gave King Crimson 2 points out of 5 for the emotional resonance ... Faust 1 out of 5 for the resonance as well. I got some things to hang on that motherf$%ker.

CTTE
is done in a very creative, crazy, free fashion. Red, on the other hand, is more focused on songwriting, not as ambitious, and it's got that brand new kind of slick production. One of the Crims' best efforts due to a greater focus on the melody.

That said, it's a tie, as far as "which album is the best of these two" goes.

Just like you calling someone a stupid-ass and a MF is just your opinion and not a fact. You should become a politician in Russia, so you can send everyone who does not agree with you to Siberia. (I heard they've got some good Khatrus over there.)

My post seems strange seeing you posted just as i did. My post was referring to Prog2112 statement pertaining to KC.

I'm not sure if we still do that. Big smile
