So glad KC is finally on Spotify. Had only heard ITCOTCK and Red previously (both of which I adore and are still my two favorites) but working my way through the rest of their discography has been so much fun. Here's my ranking thus far:

1. Red

2. In the Court of the Crimson King

3. In the Wake of Poseidon

4. Lizard

5. Larks' Tongues in Aspic

6. Islands

7. Discipline

8. Starless and Bible Black

9. Beat



Still have Three of a Perfect Pair, THRAK, Construktions, and Power to Believe left.

Digging: Serpent Column - Endless Detainment

This is so much better. A perfect album.

The album as a whole is better, but starless is Crimson's best song ever.



It amazes me that Fripp didn't like it at first...

Absolutely. I always loved it. It was one my first vinyl purchases of the band.

here's the thing about islands:



When I was first digging Crimson's discography, I was reading comments and reviews and there was this mixed reaction towards that album. So I was eager to hear it without any prejudice and determined to shut my eyes from all the negativity surrounding the record;



It didn't work out. I listened, again and again, trying to see whether there was something I missed out. But there wasn't. As far as I could see, it was just a bland, boring album.



I still need to listen to it again at some point - maybe when i"ll buy the steven wilson remaster, that is. But I doubt my view on that album will change.



It's not a shining moment in KC's career.

I continue thinking it's a very unique work in all their career and a very beautiful piece. But I can understand why that is an album that divide opinions.

I like Islands a lot actually, though it serves for a much different listening experience than their usual go-to records like this, ITCOTCK or Discipline. Islands is pretty much jazz fusion

Glad you guys love this. 'One More Red Nightmare' is probably one of my favorite songs ever.
