Yer Prog Is Olde: King Crimson – In the Court of the Crimson King

“What do you do when it’s the middle of summer, the promo sump is at an all-time low, and what’s in it has been greedily snapped up by the hordes of n00bs who are running rampant in the halls? Well, you write about an album that’s older than all of these n00bs, and better than anything coming out this summer. You write about an album that is a mere ten days older than Yours Truly.[1. And for the Cheeseheads here, is exactly the same age as the massage-loving Brett Favre.] You write about an album that has had more of an impact on progressive rock than most people’s parents have had on them. Yes, my friends, you write about King Crimson’s debut album, In the Court of the Crimson King.” Hail to the King.
