* CreepyCircusMusic: The 23 minute epic "Lizard" ends with about 2 minutes of warped, ghostly sounding carnival music following an incredibly heavy jazz section.

* {{Improv}}: From beloved ("Asbury Park", "Trio") to almost universally despised by fans. A curious example is [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RxEbFxwed3M "The Deception of the Thrush"]], an improvisation featured on many King Crimson live albums. Each iteration follows the same basic structure, but with wild variations in actual content.

* RealLifeWritesThePlot: The vocal sections of "Thela Hun Ginjeet" come straight from Adrian Belew's frazzled story of being confronted by gangsters just minutes earlier. As Belew began his story, Robert Fripp [[ThrowItIn signaled to the studio engineer to begin recording.]]

-->'''Belew''': Hello, America! I'd like to tell you the true story about how I nearly got killed while making the Discipline album.

Added DiffLines:

* MundaneMadeAwesome: "The Night Watch" is in part a description of Rembrandt's painting of that name, and in part just a 17th century middle-class Dutch guy talking about his life, but it's still remarkably moving.
-->''The smell of paint, a flask of wine\\
And turn those faces all to me\\
The blunderbuss and halberd-shaft\\
And Dutch respectability\\
They make their entrance one by one\\
Defenders of that way of life\\
The redbrick home, the bourgeoisie\\
Guitar lessons for the wife''

Added DiffLines:

* LargeHam: Lake's vocals could be pretty hammy. Some of the others could get this way at times too.


Added DiffLines:

* MetalScream: Lake uses a type 4 throughout "21st Century Schizoid Man", made even more unsettling because his vocals are processed through a distortion filter.

However, in September 2013 [[TenMinuteRetirement he announced the new seven-piece lineup]] (which includes ''three'' drummers) which began touring in 2014. It initially was billed by Fripp as a 'farewell' tour, but then the seven-piece line-up also toured in 2015, and now will be mounting another tour in fall of 2016. But, as Fripp recently turned 70 and his dissatisfaction with the state of the music industry [[http://www.dgmlive.com/about.htm is well documented]], each re-formation or line-up change could someday be the last.

* WarIsHell: "Prince Rupert's Lament," the fourth segment of "Lizard", is an instrumental depiction of the death and destruction left in the wake of the horrific Battle of Glass Tears.

The only constant member of the band is guitarist and mastermind Robert Fripp, and indeed the band's 196874 period was plagued by constantly shifting lineups. It's most stable lineup was between 1981 and 1984, where they toured as a four-piece, and from 1994 to 1998, when that same four-piece took on two additional members. The present iteration is a seven-piece band that contains two new members, along with five previous members, including one (Mel Collins) who'd hadn't played with the band for nearly 30 years.

'''King Crimson''' is a band that began in 1968 in London, from the first generation of ProgressiveRock groups. They've pretty much existed ever since, despite some pretty regular break-ups and reformations (196874, 198184, 19942004, 200708, 2013). Also debatably proof that time travel is real.
