King Crimson-Red

King Crimson Red:

If not for John Wetton this might have been the best album ever. Fripp’s guitar playing and composing is at its heaviest, most lyrical, and most direct.  He flirts with metal, Stravinsky and jazz, but still manages to add something that is definitely him to the mix. Bill Bruford’s drumming is tasteful, but  powerful. Its  just Wetton. His lyrics and vocals are terrible, and his bass playing isn’t anything to write home about either. Worth it for the incredibly powerful instrumentals.
