King Crimson "The 21st Century Guide Vol.2 1981-2003" (4CD BOX SET) (2005)

Since "In the Court of the Crimson King," King Crimson has been seen as a strange band, one whose music is powerful and even bizarre, but not mainstream. Well put your fears aside for they have recently released an 'encyclopedia' of their 39 year-old reign of progressive rock.
The two volume set, "The 21st Century Guide To King Crimson" is a real punch at the music world...In volume one we have 9 KC albums represented by 47 tracks, with about 5 1/3 hrs. of listening time. Wow! It is excellent editing with good chunks of "The Court of the Crimson King", "Wake of Poseidon", "Islands", "Larks' Tongues In Aspic", "Starless And Bible Black", and of course "Red" with 24 min. of itself. The live pair "U.S.A." and "Earthbound" add additional live material from yet more live albums. 

This is put on 4CD's and is evenly divided between studio and live cuts. For a King Crimson fan who wants to build a collection this a good place to start. There is a 24 page booklet included in each volume that has valuable information like chronologies, album art, etc. This review is for those that maybe know a couple of albums but don't know where King Crimson is headed. Wait for my review of Volume Two.
