2008–2009,2013–present / 13 studio LPs

Anniversary album: BEAT
Their 9th longplayer

AllMusic said: “The ’80s version of King Crimson (Robert Fripp, guitar; Adrian Belew, vocals/guitar; Tony Levin, bass; and Bill Bruford, drums) retains the then-modern new
wave sound introduced on ‘Discipline’. King Crimson’s Beat will automatically appeal
to other musicians. But since they’re fantastic songwriters as well, you don’t have to be
a virtuoso to feel the passion of their music.”
Score: 4./5.

TUTV: Probably the most accessible prog-rock kings of their prog-rock generation.

Splendid live version of the LP’s opening track..
