King Crimson - In The Court Of The Crimson King

My friend who I formed my first band with, his father had this album. It’s just a great, classic prog rock album. This is my of go-to album when I want to listen to that kind of sound. I don’t know why I love prog-rock so much… there’s always some kind of epicness, it seems to be part of some bigger story, something so mystical. When I started to play guitar it was also interesting to get into prog rock because it was challenging music, it became a sport, in a way! I peaked as a technical guitar player when I was 15.
