Well this album is certainly not to be missed, especially if you're a big collector of Progressive Rock. The darkness of songs such as the title track and 'One more red nightmare' show that King Crimson are a band in touch with their negative side, as well as the positive. All in all, a fantastic album, and probably their second best.

These guys are like basics of progressive metal the father of the genre progressive metal in first albums they are more progressive rock but they have a progressive metal theme in this album for me these guys are just incredibly and amazing musicians and one the best musics that i ever heard in my life

This is one of the best albums of all time and "Starless" is probably my favorite song ever. No wonder they disbanded for a while after this, it could never be topped.

This album is mandatory for every prog fan. Listen this album to understand that today's bands have worked over solid foundations. Opeth could not be Opeth without these guys.

Ooops, just slipped into the Top 200, directly at rank 23
I have to admit, I dont quite see why.
While it might have been influential and certainly is not a bad album, I dont find much here either.
Title track, Fallen angel, Starless are nice songs.
But a 9.02 overall, I dont know.
Maybe we will see the usual haircut following a top-200 entry soon (but maybe not).

I'm not as keen on the middle three tracks, but Red and Starless are excellent.

01. Red - 8/10
02. Fallen Angel - 7/10
03. One More Red Nightmare - 7/10
04. Providence - 6/10
05. Starless - 8.5/10

Overall: 7.3/10

Nowhere near as good as ITCOTCK and doesn't deserve to sit in the top 200 IMO.
