Rank the King Crimson Studio albums
25. Nov 2009 at 23:28
 
NOTE: I've modified this a bit, so this is a revised list.
 
1. Red
2. In The Court Of The Crimson King
3. Discipline
4. Thrak
5. Larks' Tongues In Aspic
6. The ConstruKction Of Light
7. Lizard
8. Islands
9. Starless And Bible Black
10.Beat
11.In The Wake Of Poseidon
12.The Power To Believe
13.Three Of A Perfect Pair
 
But, to be honest, all of the studio albums are excellent. I ranked TOAPP last, but it's still one of my favorite albums.

It's a bit random actually... I kind of made it up as I went along, I don't think it would be possible for me to properly rank the KC albums.

I can understand that. For a while, it was my favorite KC album (that was before I heard all of the albums.)
 
It's a great album, but not my favorite. It's definitely in my top 6 for sure, though.  Smiley

The title track alone just does it. And then there's the 4th Lark... and ProzaK...

Great track!
And I would add FraKctured, Oyster and Frying Pan. Ermmm... that's basically most of it!   Cheesy

Yep, you're pretty right there! Though if I had to choose one weaker track it would be Oyster. Still great though. And don't forget Heaven And Earth, which imo is the best track from the ProjeKct X album and fits pretty well as the calming closer of TCoL, even if it's just a "bonus track".

That was pretty hard. I just surely know that Lizard is one of my "lonely-island" records, and that I like Beat the less. But if TPtB is worse than ToaPP... oh, well. They're all so great!

I believe Red is one of the most essential albums in progressive rock. I would definitely include it near to the top of a list of best albums in that genre.

Agreed.
 
I have a fair bit of KC but not enough to really rank them properly. These lists are giving me a good idea of what I need to get next though!

I'll reserve my judgment on the new studio album until I hear it. But what I've heard so far sounds nice!
