* ''The Power to Believe'' (LP, 2003) - studio versions of "Level Five" & "Dangerous Curves" [[note]] Songs initially developed during the [=ProjeKct=] years years; "Level Five" has since been deemed by Fripp as the latest installment of the "Larks' Tongues" series [[/note]], new versions of "Eyes Wide Open" and "Happy with What You Have to Be Happy With"



** The best example from the band's studio work is the twenty-three-minute "Lizard", though they have done so much of this throughout their career that they practically count as the {{Trope Codifier}}s. (If counted as one song, "Larks' Tongues in Aspic" would be even longer, at around thirty-six minutes; however, it was released in four separate parts across three albums).

** On one live album, Adrian Belew does a version of Music/TheBeatles' "Free as a Bird" from ''Music/TheBeatlesAnthology'', although for some reason he only sings the Lennon bits.

* 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.

* 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.
