I know a lot of people rave about how amazing this album is, but I don't see it. I find Red to be good, but not great.

Aged like a fine wine, very influential on latter progressive metal folks.

The closest thing to a conventional album this band ever made, this being Crimson they still subvert that term. Prog Metal before it was a thing, even the long winding jam track (Providence) is probably their best. Starless is a tour de force of the prog genre, the way it begins slow then builds up into a crescendo of fury before decapitating into a quite finale. Closes the chapter of the 70s on a high .

Carried by Starless, one of the best songs to come out of that entire decade. The reprise at the end of Starless is nothing short of magical.

A much heavier affair than previous works. Moments of sheer foreboding are created with lead guitar and violin interplay on 'Providence'. A beautiful Mellotron string provides the foundation for 'Starless', where the lead vocal shares centre stage with meandering saxophone arpeggios. Overall the album has a much darker sinister feel to it and could quite easily have been used as a backing for a 70's horror movie, in particular the track 'Starless' and hell, what a sax solo lies in wait when this track climaxes!

This album is really great!! It starts slowly (for me, because most people seem to enjoy "Red", but it's a very bland track IMO) but then it gets better and better until you reach the climax in the end of "Providence", my favorite track. Maybe that's because I'm a bassist, but this track really gets me, what a fantastic job John Wetton did on the bass! And then the closer "Starless" is amazing, mainly because of the instrumental part. The first part is a bit pink-floydish and unoriginal, but later on with the instrumental bit, that's where it gets to be great. Fantastic album, better than ITCOTCK if you want my opinion!

Perfect dark grungy prog that would later influence Kurt Cobain on In Utero

An absolute classic easily on par with their debut, and one of the best progressive rock albums ever made.
