A must for King Crimson fans
The reviewer below stated that they don’t get around to playing the song that is being reviewed. I don’t think the reviewer knows how these things work. They’re not allowed to play the song. To get clearance to play the songs would cost a fortune. This isn’t like a Spotify Original podcast where they already have the license to play the song.
Now that that’s out of the way. I love this podcast. Crimson is my favorite band and this is a great idea. The two hosts clearly love Crimson and Prog Rock. They have a friendly, informative way of discussing the songs. I look forward to the new song review every week. A must for fans of KC.
Perspective (and actual music) needed
The banter between the co-hosts is too focused on inside jokes and random observations about KC. Even though each episode allegedly deconstructs KC’s works track by track, the depth of commentary is lacking. And... the co-hosts never get around to playing the song being picked apart!
Tip: Read Sid Smith’s “In the Court of King Crimson: An Observation over Fifty Years” and any relevant biographies (e.g., “Bill Bruford: The Autobiogrqphy) to gain some perspective into historical nuance of the various KC lineups. Otherwise, you’re wasting your listeners’ time.
