internet access is required as well, so the site can keep track of whether or not you actually did jam this.

This is amazing but goes soft the entire time after Schizoid Man. Fripp was so tame here, and it's sad because he can go so hard, he can be so metal. He can be so dissonant, technical, and dark. He embodied everything mathcore became.

Fuck yes he does! Fripp goes so hard on Red and Lark's Tongue and I love it! He was paving the way for modern dissonant metal that find's subtle melodicism in the darkest places possible, I love his playing so much for that.

yeah man it's kind of unsettling to listen to but so awesome at the same time

he's freaky as fuck on live footage just sitting completely still at the side of the stage
effortlessly shredding this crazy shit with no emotion on his face haha

The thing that brings this down is the over-length of songs, like in the title track he says "in the court of the crimson king aaahahahafuckidyoooooooh" so many times, as if just to make songs longer.



Epitaph is awesome though.

Moonchild is the only track that overstays its welcome imo.
