Prog Reviewer
5 stars After the less than satisfying Starless and Bible Black, King Crimson come in very strong with Red, definitely one of their best albums. This is one of early King Crimson's heaviest albums, with a direct focus on hard rock and metal immediately coming through on the strong instrumental title track that features superb musicianship from the whole band. Along with the title track, this album brought some of King Crimson's most popular material, such as "Fallen Angel" and "Starless", two absolutely beautiful tracks. "One More Red Nightmare" is rather heavy and rhythmic and sounds like a definite precursor and influence for bands like Zu.

This is a highly recommended masterpiece by King Crimson. Every track is pure gold.
