Top Ten Most Underrated King Crimson SongsIronSabbathPriest King Crimson have such a huge discography full of perfect songs and albums, but they get very little attention nowadays. Outside of the progressive realm, that is. This list is dedicated to the songs that are musically fantastic but really don't get the attention they deserve.
The Top Ten
As a user on this site once said "the ugly duckling of the debut". I actually think this 12 minute track is very good. If you actually take a step back and examine the improv section, you'll realise that it is actually very well structured. Every member is involved while being careful not to tread on each other. - IronSabbathPriest
Great instrumental from In the Wake of Poseidon. Mesmerising drum beat with some very interesting sounds. The most original song on their sophomore album, along with Cat Food. - IronSabbathPriest
A crescendo building instrumental inspired by Eastern European music. - IronSabbathPriest
Often overshadowed due to the song "Starless" and the song that comes after this, the immensely complicated "Fracture" (also brilliant songs). - IronSabbathPriest
Bill Bruford selflessly took a step back in this melotron driven track. - IronSabbathPriest
First King Crimson song I heard in full. Absolutely mesmerising. - IronSabbathPriest
Great ballad that I think rivals it's ITCOTCK counterpart "I Talk to the Wind". Guest vocals by Gordon Haskell. - IronSabbathPriest
Favourite song on the album.
This is my favorite KC song.
