ITCOTCK is my favorite album of all time. I would rate the band a 100/100 probably if it wasn't such a pain in the ass to listen to their albums. I have no problem with buying albums I enjoy and want to support the artist, but not being able to find a sample of a song anywhere makes me not want to support Fripp. If he wasn't such a grumpy old man and allowed streaming I'm sure he would make more money in the long run because then people like me who like an album will buy a physical copy for their collection. Fripp really expects people to pay 30-50 bucks for an album they've never heard before, its ridiculous.

Alway in progress. Reinvent themselves in each decade. An example of risky band

Robert Fripp, after Zappa and maybe Gilmour, is my favorite Guitar player. Adrian Belew is pretty close.
If you don't include Zappa or Floyd as progressive rock. The best is King Crimson all the way Yes and Jethro Tull round out Top 5

A very difficult band to rate because they could be brilliant as on Red, Larks Tongue's, and the debut, but their other lp's seem some way short of these high points.

Robert Fripp may be the most pretentious person to ever exist, but he made some great music.

Monsters of prog rock. Not every album they made is a masterpiece, but all deserve to be listened to. Although that is quite demanding sometimes.

Probably the greatest prog rock band in history! Definately the greatest album in prog rock! Love that this band existed, that such great musicians passed through it's membership, that it was all possible for one brief period of time. If Great Britain still cared about passionate, brilliant, difficult music we would have statues of them in our town centre's, if our Royal Family mattered at all they'd all be Knighted, like our great actors and composers of the past! Arise Sir Robert Fripp!
