While many casual prog fans might only be familiar with King Crimson’s iconic debut, In the Court of the Crimson King, their 1974 album, Red, is just as — if not more — important to the development of prog-metal. The band’s final album before a seven-year hiatus features much weightier, more muscly riffs than their previous material, picking up on the burgeoning proto-metal scene that bands like Black Sabbath were forging concurrent to prog’s rising popularity. Red is not just essential listening — its vinyl is essential owning.
