Released in 1974 after King Crimson had "ceased to exist", Red remains a remarkably powerful document of a group quitting at the top of its game. The grinding crunch of "Red" appears to anticipate much of the heavy metal scene whilst the epic "Starless" brings together several strands of the group's musical history.
Including powerful contributions from Ian McDonald, Mel Collins, David Cross, Mark Charig and Robin Miller, Red forms what is arguably the definitive statement of the '70s period Crimson. Bill Bruford recently described the album in just five words: Prescient, short and bass heavy."
