King Crimson had one of the most stunning debuts in history. With their debut LP alone, they heavily influenced the development of progressive and experimental rock. They released a total of thirteen studio albums and they have several songs which have been unfairly overlooked – overshadowed by the more popular tracks.
Let’s explore some of these:
Although it’s hauntingly beautiful, this song caused drama among the members. Still, it’s one of their best instrumental tracks.
9. Cadence and Cascade
Exceptional but among their other songs, this is fairly easy to overlook which is quite a shame.
8. Model Man
A brilliant tune but not getting enough appreciation. From the catchy riff to the lyrics, it’s unfortunate that they never performed it live.
7. Doctor Diamond
Yet another masterpiece.
6. Book of Saturday
One word – SUBLIME.
5. Cat Food
It showcases all the things we love about the band particularly their impeccable musicianship.
4. Neal and Jack and Me
Fun and catchy plus with great leads. It’s absolutely amazing.
3. Indoor Games
It’s not everyone’s cup of tea even among King Crimson’s most ardent fans but it has its moments for sure.
2. The Night Watch
Beautifully done especially with the violin parts and guitar solo.
1. Easy Money
It’s a great track but the live versions always reign supreme.
