Okay, it's been a long time but I'm resurrecting my "Something Classic" and "Band of the Week" threads. So, I'm going to start back with one of the most underrated bands, in my opinion, of all time. I'm talking about the Progressive Rock band King Crimson.

King Crimson is described mostly as a Progressive Rock band, but the style is so broad I think I need to describe it a little. It's like a Psychedelic Rock Band, but with complex instrumentals and improvisation. There are a lot of cool instruments used in the songs, and it's so unique. A lot of their material involves large songs, which provide space for extensive improvisation during live shows. But I think the band can also be considered a Jazz Fusion band, because some of their material is directly influenced from Jazz.

This band was one of the most underrated bands of the 60's/70's. Their debut album is regarded by many fans to be one of the greatest albums of all time. It only features 5 songs, but each song is over 6 minutes long, the longest being 12 minutes long. Today I'm showcasing this album because I feel that this album encompass what this band is really about. It basically shows all of their styles, and is the most pure form of King Crimson, as the band suffered from many, many personnel changes over the years.

They are extremely popular.

Too classic to avoid IMO

I'm listening to Epitah right now I like this song a lot. Very relaxing and downbeat. This music is pretty cool thanks for sharing Axe.

Epitaph is by far their best song, but everything on the debut is legendary.
