King Crimson -- 'Red'

Traffic sucks, so why not start your morning off with some music? You provide the toast and we’ll provide the jams.

I still remember packing into my buddy’s car back home, riding around packed with my friends, them incessantly calling the local radio station to request only the longest and most obtuse King Crimson tracks. KING CRIMSON! was the call, each fighting for the longest song they could think of. All that is to say I really stopped listening to King Crimson for a while, particularly Red, all their favorite album. Listen to Red, Raph! LISTEN TO RED.

So, I didn’t, until years later, when I did. Good tunes. Weird friends, good music.
