Top Albums 1969.

Almost like I made it!

1-vinylThere certainly are plenty of charts, best of list, Top of and so on. Typically we do not agree a number of the ranking, still, that is natural, all of us have our very own faves, or perhaps we are all admirers of various artist and it is literarily hopeless to create a chart which would please every single music lover. That’s why is a great enjoyment whenever you come across chart that fulfill all your „ standards”. Personally, it occurred to myself when I came accross Top Album of Year 1969. on web „rateyourmusic.com”

Now, lets us find the reason why is that. To begin with great affirmative surprise is album „ In the Court of the Crimson King” by King Crimson. “King Crimson are among the few prog music groups whom one can in fact call ‘progressive’, applying the dictionary interpretation of the terminology. Nonetheless, first what provide a perception of this particular album (especially if it’s vinyl), is the exceptional art of the cover. I assume most of us, at some point or another, regardless if we knew what it was or not, have all viewed the shrieking face that decorates the cover of ‘In the Court of the Crimson King’. This particular appearance, in plenty of elements, defines the innovation, audio and strength of the album. Musically this album, as King Crimson’s very first, generally described the style in exactly what we call ‘prog rock’. Paradoxically enough, the band has constantly rejected claims that they are simply penalized the ‘prog’ classification. Yet on the other hand to what the band might think, this sensational 5 track, forty-five min album is right on, real meaning of the progressive rock genre. Robert Fripp was in some way right not to receive classified as progressive rock. Those preferring hard rock and wonderful guitar work will fancy the songs of King Crimson.

Those individuals who like progressive music and take joy in extensive arrangements will definitely like it a lot more. My point is, you do not need to enjoy just one element of a genre of music for you to enjoy King Crimson’s music. And that is exactly the reason why this album entirely deserves to be # 1 in 1969. It is among my favorite of all time and I highly recommend it to any music lover.
