Recorded in the aftermath of King Crimson’s implosion in 1969, when two of its founding members unexpectedly quit the band, In The Wake Of Poseidon shares some similarities in approach and sound to In The Court Of The Crimson King and has been a firm favorite among fans of the band since it's initial release on 15th May 1970. It's an eclectic and experimental mix of bone-crunching riffs, Beatles-ish pop, tender ballads, soaring mellotron-drenched anthems and inscrutable atonal episodes. Highlights include Fripp’s savage guitar throughout Pictures Of A City and Greg Lake’s stunning vocal on the title track — his last with the group before his departure to form ELP. When In The Wake Of Poseidon was released in May 1970, it peaked at No.4 in the UK charts with one journalist proclaiming “If Wagner were alive today he’d work with King Crimson.” 
The Devil's Triangle, Wessex Studio sessions 24th March 1970 and 6th April 1970 form part of the previously unreleased recordings from the In the Wake of Poseidon studio sessions in early 1970. Catfood and Groon are issued from Wessex studio sessions 3rd February 1970. All the original studio sessions from 1970 are being made available by download in 2020 to satisfy recent changes to copyright laws: all recordings must be released within the fiftieth year of their recording in order to continue to enjoy copyright protection. 
This is the original 1970 stereo mix where Hi-Res format comes from, 30th anniversary remaster — by Simon Heyworth and Robert Fripp in September, 1999. The Hi-Res master is issued from the original album mixes. This edition of the album contains the single version of Catfood and it's B side Groon as additional tracks. © CM/Qobuz

Prog Rock in 10 Albums

Influence is a shapeless thing, moving and rearranging based on sounds from the past and how they align with sounds from the present. In the case of progressive rock, a genre relocated from the pop charts to sheet music stands and art rock-favored stereos over the past four decades, influence has shifted in a similar way—later records that expanded the lexicon have lapped previous records with the incorporation of new styles, cultures and their corresponding sounds. Prog may not be burning up the rock charts, but you can see the everlasting influence of the genre in bands ranging from Tool to Kanye West and beyond. With that said, here are ten crucial progressive rock releases for 2021 and beyond.

Britpop in 10 Albums

“If punk was about getting rid of hippies, then I'm getting rid of grunge.” It was with this sentence from Damon Albarn in 1993 that England invaded the stage previously dominated by Nirvana and Seattle grunge. Britpop is deeply linked to politics and local identity and emerged just as Tony Blair and New Labour were entering the scene. English romanticism was once again becoming attractive compared to the American identity, which was considered too hollow in the UK. Make way for “Cool Britannia”.

The Talking Heads Revolution

Forty years after its release, David Byrne and his band’s album “Remain in Light” has held on to all of its mad and funky allure. The album’s merging of intellectual post-punk with cosmopolitan dance music influenced groups such as LCD Soundsystem, Vampire Weekend and Arcade Fire. On this fourth album produced by Brian Eno, the Talking Heads revolutionized their sound, but also that of rock itself.
