4.0 out of 5 stars CRIMSON VIRGINS START HERE!, 24 May 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Condensed 21st Century Guide To King Crimson (1969 - 2003) (Audio CD)
Although I'm old enough to remember them, King Crimson somewhat passed me by the first time around. When I looked for a CD to belatedly aquaint myself with their work, I found this two disc complation. Not only is it generally excellent, but it carefully selects tracks from the different phases of the band' existance. So while I was thrilled to hear the older material, I was was also presented with a story that almost comes up to date. (Well to 2003, at least.) All the line ups are interesting, though the Fripp/Wetton/Bruford/(Muir/Cross)one stands out for me. ('Starless', 'Red' etc.) To describe the music; it's progressive rock, but with avant-garde and even jazz sensibilities.

This CD is a good place to start if like me you want to dip your toe in the Crimson pond.
