I'm glad he left. he was vital in making some of the best Yes albums ever, but without him we woulden't have such great KC albums such as red and Three of a Perfect Pair Smile

I'm not so sure, really, if I prefer his leaving Yes or not... I guess I'll never truly know. What he achieved with King Crimson was great, and indeed his playing in King Crimson was even more amazing than in Yes. But then, some of my favourite albums ever are Fragile and Close to the Edge, and I might wonder if they might have come closer to that again if he had stayed... or at least if the next 2 or 3 albums might have had much better drumming (imagine Relayer with Bruford on Drums). Still, perhaps Bruford was right when he said Yes had reached their height with CttE, and he couldn't achieve much more by staying in the band. However, we must enjoy what we do have, and that's a bunch of really awsome albums, both by King Crimson and Yes, with and without Bruford.

Approve Austin, I totally agree. Don't get me wrong, I absolutely love Yes, but it always seemed Bruford was held back in Yes, not to mention him and Squire never got along. In fact, I heard somewhere they borderline got into a fistfight on stage over some disagreement. Squire's a bit of hothead though, that's not really a surprise. In King Crimson though, that's where Bruford really let loose and showed off his unique style and approach. The partnership between Bill and David Muir on Larks' is extraordinary. Larks' to Three Of A Perfect Pair - inspiration drum records.

The line up that made CTTE and Fragile was pretty much untouchable. In a way Bruford leaving because Yes had reached its peak was a self fulfilling prophecy. For me Yes were never as good again although they made several more excellent albums after his departure with various different line ups.

I can't imagine Jon Anderson singing Schizoid Man or songs like Exiles or Starless.

And I DEFINITELY can't imagine John Wetton singing songs like Close To The Edge or Roundabout!

Would have been interesting to see what King Yes would have come up with though....

Wetton era Crimson is overrated. I'd rather him in Yes because Yes made all their best albums while Bruford was there.

He moved to a band which wouldn't let him use cymbals because the guitarist didn't think he could hear his guitar well enough

He moved to a better band, for him and in general. I think that's pretty smart.

You're right. Songs like Starless, Frakture, and Red are not well composed pieces of music.

Only 3 songs from about 20 from that era you can mention? Frakture is pretty repetitive really. Starless and Red are the best tracks from that album, but I don't go crazy over them like most do in here

Yes, because I didn't feel like listing every song that King Crimson has created that is well composed. I ain't got that kind of time.

About Schizoid Man I absolutley agree, but with Exiles and Starless he might actually have sounded better. But for me, that's not particularly difficult, I really love those two songs, but Wetton's vocals rather put me a bit off... I guess the perfect choice, for me, for singing those two songs would have been Lake (weirdly enough, I like the way Wetton sings Schizoid Man better than the original version with Lake). However, back with Schizoid Man, I do feel Jon Anderson wouldn't have been very good singing that song, but he did sing on South Side of the Sky... so perhaps, just perhaps, he might have pulled out Schizoid Man nicely.

I'm glad he moved to Crimson, it's not like Yes fell apart after his departure, they still managed to create some great music. About Crimson they really pulled out an ace, together with Bruford they were really a force.

Here's an amusing little quote I found in the King Crimson article on TV Tropes:
 
"In Yes, there was an endless debate about should it be F natural in the bass with G sharp on top by the organ. In King Crimson... you were just supposed to know."  - Bill Buford

He certainly benefited immensely from the move.  I wonder if we would have ever seen or even known of such a fantastic improvisational side to him had he carried on in Yes.  He was brilliant with Yes already but Red album has some of the most expressive drumming of that era.

The Problem with KC and improvising is their lack of improvisation-skill. Although I love KC, I've never liked their improvisation-tracks because they all sound rather directionless and sloppy to me . Compare a track like moonchild with Hymn To Him from Mahavishnu and see how it should be: an epic composition mixed with fine improvisation.


Posted By: rogerthat
Date Posted: August 05 2012 at 19:27
^^^ It's not necessary to improvise only in tracks structured for improvisation, though.   KC simply follow the rule of not playing every note the same way again so even in more composed tracks like One More Red Nightmare, actually especially on that track, the quality of playing is very improvised and organic.

Bill as much as I love his drumming and talents can come across a douchbag.He talks about Yes in a condescending way and gives way too much credit to King Crimson

Yes is has always and will always be better than King Crimson

Compare Close To The Edge or Relayer to say Larks Tongues or Red it's not even close. Yes wins all the way. I guess Yes wanted to show him up. Sound Chaser. Bill Bruford who????Evil Smile We don't need that prick Evil Smile

He wasn't talking about what was better for you. He was talking about what was better for Bill. Both bands could compose, but KC decided to do more than that - improvise, and that was right up Bill's alley.

Why don't we just start another thread called '40th Anniversary of Bill Bruford joining King Crimson'...........then we can avoid the Yes vs Crimso arguments.  I thought this is supposed to be a happy place........

^ Then the Yes vs. KC arguments will resurface again. Also, in order to keep PA as a happy place, everyone (and I mean everyone) has to put the right amount of effort into doing it.*

I'm gonna have to see some evidence of that.

On a more relevant note: as Austin (Horizons) was saying (and I'll back him up again), the KC niche was a better place for Bill. In "Prog Rock Britannia" he admitted that he probably should have kickstarted his career as a jazz drummer, not as a rock drummer, ... which is also the reason why he put up with KC a long time ago and just stuck with jazz. Whatever serves him right.

Yes we are talking about how Yes actually do good improves listen to 5 per cent for Nothing, Cans and Brahms,Sound Chaser, and The Ancient just like you had a reason to be a smaller man it all makes sense to me Tongue


Correct me if I'm wrong but I don't believe Cans n' Brahms was improv. Also, you are entitled to limeYes more than KC but, I don't think there's any denying that KC was far superior to Yes in the realm of improv.

Really Shocked ???  I know cat food (cat food cat food AGAIN !!) has pilchards in aspic but I never thought that Larks' Tongues would be a delicacy........sounds like something straight out of a black-magic cookbook.......

I have a Latin cookbook with a recipe for larks' tongues (It begins "Catch 1000 larks. Remove tongues. Discard larks.") so I always assumed it was an ancient Roman dish.

He wasn't talking about what was better for you. He was talking about what was better for Bill. Both bands could compose, but KC decided to do more than that - improvise, and that was right up Bill's alley.

It's still tragic to me, because even though Crimson gained a phenomenal drummer, they always lacked in the vocal department without Lake. ELP has never been worth the power in vocals Lake brought to KC on their first two albums, and could've brought to the proceeding albums.

I played larks album recently and just didn't enjoy it much. The album has major holes I reckon. There's no kick ass compositions such as gentle giants playing the game or the runaway. Brilliant tracks. I only like wettons voice in the slow tracks. His voice sucks in easy money a bit

I think in KC there was more breathing space for Bruford than it had ever been, or could have been in Yes. For one thing, Bruford gravitated towards jazz ... KC was a lot more jazzy than Yes. For another, in Yes the drummer somehow never was a primary player (I am glad the bassist was, though).

I have always been a bit mystified by the love Larks' Tongues gets around here. Don't get me wrong, it has it's moments and I am a big KC fan in general, but compared to their other works it has always struck me as a bit lackluster. The only track on it I really love is The Talking Drum.

^ I always thought of four out of six tracks on the album as brothers, all heavy. The grooves, the sound of the guitar and the bass, masterful improvs and compositions. Bruford was definitely integral to that sound. A (mostly) dirty record, and that's why I like it.

I was thinking the same thing. Aren't they too large to be larks' tongues? BTW, I took the picture from a blog and took its author's word for it.
