Awesome / King Crimson

  • "Fracture" is one from a musical standpoint.
  • The long crescendo that comprises the second half of "Starless."
  • It's rare that a musician's decision not to play can count as a Moment of Awesome, but Bill Bruford managed it on the band's live improvisation "Trio". His decision was credited by the other band members as having a significant impact on the direction of the piece, and he received a composition co-credit for contributing what the band labelled "admirable restraint".
