King Crimson biography
Formed in London in 1968 - Several hiatus & reformations (1981,1994,2007 & 2013) - Still active in 2017

" When you want to hear where music is going in the future, you put on a King Crimson album."
- Bill Bruford, 1995

For all its break-ups, periods of non-existence and fluctuating methodology, King Crimson remains one of the interminably compelling bands playing within the domain of rock music to this day. Widely acknowledged as being the harbingers of the art-rock genre with their monumental 1969 album "In The Court Of The Crimson King", they paved the way for innovative art-rock/progressive rock bands such as Yes, ELP etc etc. in the early '70s as well as providing a stimulus for more recent neo-progressive bands like Tool and The Mars Volta through their post-progressive work in the early '80s and '90s.

Fripp began playing guitar at the age of eleven with 'Trad. Jazz' perfomer Acker Bilk providing him with early inspiration. By the age of 18, he was playing with a hotel band in his hometown of Bournemouth performing at bar-mitzvahs and weddings while developing his distinctive guitar style which incorporated many classical techniques. While other early influences included such diverse sources as Bartok, Debussy and Django Reinhardt, he was particularly drawn to the 1967 Beatles song "A Day In The Life" which, he claimed, affected him in similar ways as classical composers and it was around this time his designs for King Crimson began to take form. In early '67, after playing with other local pop outfits, he joined two brothers, MICHAEL GILES and Peter Giles on drum...

Review by TenYearsAfter

5 stars "Two Mellotrons on stage during the Red tour in 1974"

On this 7th studio album (1974) you can hear that King Crimson had done a lot of touring in the last two years, the band sounds more tight and powerful than on their previous two efforts Lark's Tongues In Aspic (1973) and Starless And Bible Black (1974). After the departure of first Jamie Muir and later David Cross, King Crimson became a trio (although David Cross is mentioned on Red as a guest musician): Robert Fripp, Bill Bruford and John Wetton. The album Red turned out to be commercially unsuccessful but it was a great inspiration for many bands like Nirvana, Living Colour and Tool.

The music on the opener Red is in the vein of the cover: dark and ominous featuring a kind of Heavy Prog, very compelling with propulsive drums, powerful bass work, a fiery guitar sound and melancholical violin play by David Cross. The climates alternate between mellow and agressive, it generates a hugh tension in the music.

Next Fallen Angel, this track sounds a a blend of jazz, symphonic rock and Heavy Prog. The one moment dreamy with Mellotron violins, and the other moment sumptuous with fiery brass, in a dark atmosphere.

In the following One More Red Nightmare it becomes even more dark, heavy and compelling featuring fat guitar riffs, a screamy saxophone, hypnotizing twanging guitar and a propulsive rhytm-section. This is topped by John Wetton his distinctive vocals, with a melancholical undertone.

And now for something completely different, the long composition Providence: pretty experimental with violin and percussion, culminating in a heavy climax with blistering electric guitar and powerful bass.

The final composition Starless is for me one of the best King Crimson ever wrote. First dreamy with intense Mellotron violins, sensitive electric guitar and saxophone, a melancholical cello and tender vocals. Then follows one of the most exciting build-ups in Classic Prog history: Bruford's propulsive percussion and Wetton's growling bass, fueled by an ominous, razorsharp guitar sound from Fripp, gradually it becomes more and more bombastic, wow, what an ultimate exciting and compelling musical experience. After a break with a saxophone solo the climax is heavy and powerful, the interaction between the trio and the dynamics are overwhelming. In the end the dreamy atmosphere from the first part returns, with wonderful Mellotron work and tender vocals, goose bumps. This was a long and captivating musical journey between ultra contrasting atmospheres, unique and pivotal progrock!

Bonus items on my Red 40th anniversary edition.

The bonustracks are 'trio versions' from Red (impressive bass sound) and Fallen Angel (instrumental with jazzy guitar play) and a 'full version' from Providence (all pre-overdub versions by Steve Wilson).

The DVD is my highlight of this remastered version, especially the video with four tracks from the French tv in 1974.

Lark's Tongues In Aspic : Part II : More powerful and tight than the 1973 Beatclub version, and without Jamie Muir, a big plus, I never liked his contributions.

The Night Watch : The same irritating images as on Pictures Of An Exhibition from ELP but interesting to see Robert Fripp sublimating his infamous passive agressive nature into his fiery guitar play.

Lament : A young and inspired Bill Bruford experimenting with assorted percussion, that's why he left Yes for King Crimson.

Starless : A mindblowing version, for me it's also breathtaking to see two white Mellotron M400 models on stage, on the left for David Cross and on the right for Robert Fripp. To be honest, I prefer David Cross here with his violin, rather than the original saxophone. This is top notch legendary progressive rock and showcases why Classic Prog still rules.

More info from the record company.

This 40th Anniversary edition on CD/DVD-A features new stereo & 5.1 mixes by Robert Fripp and Steven Wilson plus high resolution stereo mixes of the original, extensive additional audio material and representative video. It also contains new sleeve-notes by Robert Fripp and King Crimson biographer Sid Smith, a newly designed booklet with rarely seen photos and other archive material and presented in double Digipack format with outer card slipcase.

King Crimson Eclectic Prog

Review by Kornod

5 stars For me this album is one of the most interesting King Crimson effort, because it's at the same time something completely new for the band, and a delicate bridge between "Lizard" and "Lark's Tongues In Aspic".

Experimental nature of "Islands" is pretty much obvious in cause of contrast that was made by far more aggressive sound of previous album. There we have very calm and almost meditative soundscapes which are being represented to us starting with the first section of the disc.

I think now it's time to say something about album's structure. For me it can be simply divided into three major parts, where the first consists of tracks 1 and 2 which make a so-called "Sailor's Tale Suite" I like to think about it as an almost twenty-minute piece because the transition between the tracks is insanely smooth and they are very similar to each other if we speaking about atmosphere. For me this part is probably the best in the entire album, cause it gives many different and entertaining moves, which combine variety of greatly enjoyable moods.

The second part takes it place at tracks 3-5 and is the most experimental part of the album. Although it's still enjoyable I personally think that it's a bit of a letdown of an album.

Finally the last part is the title track only. And that's where things get very complicated, because it's one of a few songs which I find deeply personal but I can't say definitely why it's so. Still it won't stop me from getting shivers every time I listen to it.

I already said a lot about my all-time favorite, though I can speak about how gorgeous it is about an hour or even more, but there is still one thing that I want to mention - if you really listen to it carefully, then you can see pieces and moods that'll directly make their way to next King Crimson work. It provides very nice transition of styles within band's discography.

So, in the nutshell "Islands" is very calm but at the same time a very personal experience, something that you need to listen at least once. For me it's true masterpiece, and I won't hesitate even a bit from rating this 5/5.

Review by Evolver
Special Collaborator Crossover & JR/F/Canterbury Teams

5 stars Back in the 1980s, during the Discipline era of King Crimson, Robert Fripp decided that the band would not play any of the past groupings' songs, save for "Red" and "Larks' Tongues In Aspic Part 2". This was humorously portrayed in Tony Levin's "King Crimson Barber Shop Quartet" ("We don't play 21st Century Schizoid Man, but we're the King Crimson Band"). I had read some quotes from Fripp at the time where he said he was not interested in the past, only wanting to move forward.

I suspected a different motive. King Crimson had gone through so many personnel changes that KC at the time just wasn't the same band from the previous decade, and those old favorites performed by this group might not be up to par with Fripp's meticulous musical sensibilities.

Well, here we are some thirty-something years later, and Fripp now wants to grace us with new live versions of many of those old masterpieces.

I have the 2015 "Live At The Orpheum" CD, and while I liked the album, I found it somewhat lacking. The performances on that set kept too close to the originals, and was often lifeless.

But here, after 2 years plus of touring on the KC catalog of music, this new set takes off. The life they breathe into all of the music, no matter which King Crimson iteration played the original version, is astounding. The three drummers, which often didn't blend on the earlier release, now come together to form 1 Bruford, or at least a reasonable facsimile.

And they throw in a couple of new tracks, which sound like they might have been leftovers from "A Scarcity Of Miracles".

My favorite tracks on this are "Larks'Tongues In Aspic, Part 1", modernized, but as earth-shaking as ever, "Cirkus" and "The Lizard Suite", two song I never thought Fripp would be playing again, and the almost 16 minute version of "Schizoid Man".

The best performer here is Mel Collins, who's sax & flute work brings me back to the good old days when he seemed to be sitting in with nearly every British prog band.

Truly an amazing trip through the entire history of the king of prog.

Review by thwok

4 stars I once read that Maynard James Keenan called King Crimson the biggest musical influence on Tool. KC's sound had certainly become more aggressive by the time of their second live album. By 1975 David Cross & John Wetton were touring members of the band; USA represents the band at their peak imho.

These are simply great performances of great music. My favorite tracks are the two bonus songs from the 2002 reissue; it's the version to get. I haven't heard other live compilations, which seen to breed like rabbits, for comparison.

I think the sound quality of USA, the main issue with EARTHBOUND, is perfectly acceptable. Deciding whether these live performances are "better" than the studio ones is purely subjective, so it's up to each individual. I don't listen to many live albums, but this is about as good as you can get!

Review by HarmonyDissonan

5 stars THE HALL BECAME THE KING'S HALL LAST NIGHT! Wow! What a show! I just saw KC on their Radical Action tour last night at the Riverside Theater in Milwaukee, WI! Tremendous!! This cd/dvd 4 disc set does a very good job of encapsulating what we saw last night. I, not being the absolute card carrying KC fan was blown away! Although there was no way that I was going to miss the chance to see this classic group (ensemble)! Hell, none of us are getting any less finite! It was so impressive to just see consummate musicians performing their craft! No pussyfooting around, just damn fine music! Although this may or may not be the way many a long time fan of KC who are far more knowledgeable about them and their music feel, I personally love this box set. Both the live cd's and the fine blu ray! To me the interpretations on this set aren't quite as cold and sterile as mostof the original studio recordings. It was cool to see Robert Fripp and all of his cohorts as they directed crimson waves of energy deep into our auditory cortices! It was an awesome experience! I really love this set and although I was a slightly greater than slight fan of the band before, this has raise their stock in my book substantially! To anyone who likes KC but doesn't love their music or doesn't know it too well, I highly recommend this set! It is a monumental statement and a fine, classy representation of a considerable overview of this amazing King's oeuvre! Well that's it, take care and enjoy God's gift of music!

Review by thesameoldfears

5 stars I started listening to King Crimson my sophomore year in college 2006-07 and by then there was no active Crimson and wouldn't be for quite a while longer. Certainly, I never thought that any future lineup would give an airing to the classic 70s material, but when this band formed, it was one of the most pleasant of surprises. Having three drummers adds even more texture to material that was already rich and complex. I've seen them live in person twice and it neat to see how the drummers trade lines, play off each other, and accentuate unusual beats and patterns. I love it how Pat Mastelotto has picked up where Jamie Muir left off in 1973 with all the unconventional percussion in addition to the regular kit. This album focuses on the 70s material, though I appreciate a nod to the underappreciated 2000s lineup with Level Five and The Construkction of Light (though I wish they hadn't cut out the vocals on the latter). The return of Mel Collins on sax and flute was really exciting, and it's especially interesting to hear him interpret songs that were originally recorded without winds, like VROOM and Level Five. Also nice that they didn't just play the hits, and instead dived into the catalog and gave great readings to a couple really great tracks from the Islands album, Sailors Tale and The Letters. See this band live if you get the chance.

5 stars What can I say that hasn't already been said? This is one of the true masterpieces of the prog rock genre and one of my favorite albums. This album the 7th and last before a long hiatus, and as well as being the the 3rd album in the trilogy of the Bruford/Wetton lineup. So it has "finale" written all over it, and boy does it deliver. Red takes all the distinctive elements of previous albums (the heavy guitars, the improv, the wind instruments, the mellotron) and wraps into one package. The last song Starless is one of my favorites of all time, the last two minutes of this song are incredibly moving. Essential listening.

In The Court Of The Crimson King
King Crimson Eclectic Prog

Review by The Prognaut
Prog Reviewer

5 stars Arguably, the best progressive rock record of all time. Unarguably, a cornerstone to understand the complexity and depths of the genre. Over the years, this record specifically has been target of several and endless debates between experts, fans and music enthusiasts of whether it defines the origins of Progressive Rock in its whole or not. "In The Court of The Crimson King" is as core musical creation just as any other that emerged alongside at the time the genre was being conceived. What makes ITCOTCK outstand from the rest, is its pure and unique blend of trademark sounds, the eerie mysticism, the overwhelming mixture of profound lyrics and the heavenly powerful lineup.

When the first notes of "21st Century Schizoid Man" rumble to the common ear, a feeling of panicking vertigo and lightheaded symptoms strike irreparably. It's a sense of collapsing discomfort that you end up getting used to over time and oddly how, enjoying endwise. The elaboration is brilliantly terrifying, almost as subtle as strange with a pinch of uttered mildness. In the years to come, this piece will turn into one of the most meaningful progressive rock songs of all time to all those own and strange to the genre.

Right after, "I Talk to the Wind" flutters shyly through delicate fluty notes that lead the way to a beautiful ballad. The words come out suitably exquisite to intertwine with the musical passage where a dreamlike scene takes places before your eyes.

And just when you start feeling this reassuring feel of detachment from the world outside your head, "Epitaph" jumps right in to blur away all that. This third piece in the album can be plainly defined as "mind-blowing". It's quite ironic to believe that a song can make you feel as gloomy as happy in a matter of almost nine endless minutes. There's no question about how magnificent was Greg LAKE behind the mic during his time with KING CRIMSON and in my humble opinion, this song is mainly carved in our minds due to the devoted voice of this man.

"Moonchild" is to me, a much underrated song that undoubtedly suits the wholeness of the record. It floats through enigmatic and comforting sounds, the instrumental section slowly reveals the enchantment of the track as it goes forward, letting us appreciate some intricate guitar and cymbal notes in between that create this moody ambiance all around the song.

Last but not least impressive, "The Court of the Crimson King" blasts away to wind up this 1969 record superbly. This piece was determinant to embrace the spirit of KING CRIMSON then and now of course. The song has turned into this sort of hymn, mandatory to refer to any entry in the history book of this iconic band. To me, it's not possible to think of KING CRIMSON's legacy without bringing this composition to the table. And far beyond from all that, this song seems to hold the essence, the origin, the birth and the entireness of the band that has lasted and prevailed for almost 50 years. Long live the King.

Review by Luqueasaur

5 stars Planned spontaneity: 10/10

Clown, juggler, acrobat, sword swallower, lion tamer, it can only mean one thing... the circus has come to town! For their upcoming show, they have brought along a special guest: the iconoclastic and now jazzy KING CRIMSON, featuring Robert Fripp, Gordon Haskell, Mel Collins, Andy McCulloch, Keith Tippet, Robin Miller, Mark Charig, Nick Evans. The purpose of this unconventional partnership is to present tonight's theatrically bombastic show, the conceptual piece called LIZARD.

"People, oh all good people," says the announcer (who is actually Jon Anderson with a mustache. Boy, I wonder why is he hiding his identity), "This will be a unique experience! It will take you to lands so eerie you would never expect to visit!". Fripp, with a cold smile, continues. "I can guarantee you: this will be unlike anything ever seen."

LIZARD is... strange. Here, KING CRIMSON plays an in-between of free jazz and jazz fusion. Nowhere nearly as accessible or straightforwardly technical as MAHAVISHNU ORCHESTRA, but also hardly grasping the absolute unorthodoxy of oddities like BITCHES BREW, LIZARD can be described at best as "free jazz with structure", something that sounds like an absurd oxymoron, but isn't. The jazz is improvisational, however, with limits demarked by the songs' skeletal chords and rhythm. Basically, the musicians perform a controlled experiment. It ends up sounding bizarre, unpredictable, but not really alienating.

Sadly, LIZARD's status as "not this nor that", its inhabitation in that grey area makes it underrated (rather than accessed) by both extremities. At one tip, settled by a demanding minority of bold avant-jazz lovers who expect nothing less than deranged subversiveness, it's not adventurous enough. To the numerous jazz fusion fans on the opposite hemisphere, it's too weird, too chaotic, and most importantly, it doesn't sound like 21st Century Schizoid Man. It doesn't sound like anything that resembles the first incarnation of KING CRIMSON at all, actually. "Jesus, dude. IN THE WAKE OF POSEIDON was such a great followup... why did you need to do... this?"

I'll give them a break, it must have been a shocker. In the dawn of 1970 KING CRIMSON was playing mellow and atmospheric symphonic prog but only a few months later they changed their style completely. Now, they're playing weird jazz. Weirder than 21st Century Schizoid Man (which isn't even weird, to begin with). This is visible since the opener: LIZARD begins with a somber tone, brought by Cirkus. Right away, KING CRIMSON's new incarnation brings solid musicianship through an organized polyphonic instrumental jamming (under Haskell's rude vocals). Although the track seems to indicate a certain conceptual (or atmospheric) seriousness, this is an erroneous assumption, promptly corrected on the next track. Indoor Games' brass melody has an air of mockery and Gordon Haskell's reverbed vocals sound cheerful in a rather... mischievous way. Happy Family continues with this frolic mood. But it is also the most inaccessible and anarchical song. Everything: the guitars, the keyboards, the Mellotron, the flute, the oboe; they all together jam with autonomy, absolutely disconnected, almost cacophonically. Starkly contrasting with this madness, Lady of the Dancing Water is warm and delicate, like a lullaby. Fripp gentle strums the guitar, Collins calmly blows the flute. Images of a lake come to your mind. Well, if it didn't before, I hope it does now you've read this.

The big boy occupies the second side. LIZARD . The eponymous track. From the Old French lesarde. (Aren't them beautiful words? Both lizard and lesarde.) Dynamic, medievalesque, ever-changing and spectacularly composed and played (even if somewhat disjunct), it brings up a notch the already formidable songwriting. The abstract lyrics construct imageries of a whimsical world dwelled by sentient lizards and brave princes (which so happen to be the name of coastal Canadian cities) who participate in poetic battles of symbolic proportions and cryptical significances. Or... something like that, I guess. It's a beautiful, powerful and boldly creative song and deservedly hailed as one of KING CRIMSON's finest pieces. It features Jon Anderson (the main vocalist of YES). By the way, that's the reason Anderson was hiding his identity. He didn't want to spoil the surprise. Seriously, when I spontaneously discovered it was him (I was listening to this at school) I giggled like a fan girl "It's Jon Anderson, oh my god". Luckily, no one was around.

Big Top is the [song and album's] outro. A circus-esque melody begins at the right speaker and fades from the left, simulating the passage a musical act right in front of the listener. And thus the show is over. The circus left town with its fanciful world of adventures and eclectic improvisational jazz fusion. Some who experienced LIZARD deems it as bland, boring, disconnected, too coldly calculated, too inaccessible, or directionless. Others, like me, call it inspirational, superb, breathtaking, yadda yadda yadda. It's all a matter of perspective. For anyone willing to give a shot at a slightly weird and unorthodox jazz, but only slightly, LIZARD's at your service. The circus is willing to play their show again, and again, and again... if you're willing to listen to it.

Review by martindavey87

3 stars My introduction to King Crimson came through hearing the song 'Red' which I found incredibly boring and repetitive. Such a shame, that King Crimson, one of the most famous progressive rock bands of all time, would turn out to be such a letdown. Fast forward a few years and I'm at my local, trusty car-boot sale. We all love a bargain, and when I saw someone selling this CD for 50p, I knew it was time to jump in and give the band a proper chance.

Well, they won me over, because 'Discipline' turned out to be a pretty good record.

Consisting of musically intelligent and creative individuals, these guys know how to write some totally different and unique songs. My personal faves, 'Elephant Talk' and 'Thela Hun Ginjeet', both have lyrical themes that are certainly unlike any others I've heard before. Both interestingly show how musical inspiration can come from anywhere.

Despite these two highlights though, at times it feels like the rest of 'Discipline' just kind of plods along. The songs aren't terrible, in fact, each song by itself is good and very easy to listen to, but I find myself getting bored trying to listen to the whole album in one sitting. In that regard, whilst this release may have converted me into a fan, it's still not something I'm likely to rant and rave about any time soon.

I guess I'm all talk.

Thanks to ProgLucky for the artist addition. and to Quinino for the last updates
