The initial pressing of RED is packaged in a cardboard-stock gatefold sleeve. As the year 2009 marked the 40th anniversary of King Crimson, band mainstay Robert Fripp chose to honor their significant back catalog with a 40th anniversary series of multimedia CD/DVD releases. Fripp installed Steve Wilson (of Porcupine Tree fame) to aid in bringing the catalog into the 21st century, the centerpiece of Wilson's efforts being newly crafted 5.1 Surround Sound mixes of the Mighty Crim's dozen-plus studio efforts onto DVD. The medium would also provide an opportunity for existing materials (read: the original LPs) a chance to sound better than ever. ...See Full Description

||Amazing, inspiring, moving, energetic, immortal!|
That`s right! This album by KC is all of that and more! It`s hard to believe that this was recorded when this version of the band was about to break up, because they sound like there`s a great communication between them, their performance is so well put together, you imagine that this is a band that feels great playing with each other! It certainly feels great listening to this album! Don`t be deceived by the cover picture, besides Wetton, Bruford and Fripp, there are more excellent musicians who participate in this album (David Cross, Ian McDonald and Mell Collins) making this a kind of super-session collection.

||The end of the best Crimson|
Red was the last (mostly)studio release by the Wetton/Fripp/Bruford edition of King Crimson. And wow(!) talk about going out with a bang.

||The last of the best!!!|
Red is the final release of the best incarnation of King Crimson,(Fripp,Wetton,Bruford & Cross). It bookends Starless & Bible Black along w/ Larks Tongues in Aspic.
By D.R.Smith (Baltimore, MD, USA)
This album spawned heavy prog music, bands today such as Tool and Dream Theater owe it to these guys.
