These are what we call the 'YMMV items.' Things that some people find in this work. We call them 'your mileage might vary' because not everyone sees these things in the same way. This starts discussions in the trope lists, a thing we don't want. Please use the discussion page if you'd like to discuss any of these items.
YMMV: King Crimson
Awesome Music: Plenty of it— not surprising given the members' virtuosity and the sheer amount of Epic Rocking they do. Just about every fan will put "21st Century Schizoid Man," "Fracture," and "Starless" at the top of the list.
The Lizard lineup in "Bolero: The Peacock's Tale" where they reprise the verse section of the moody "Prince Rupert Awakes" as a Rat Pack-styled swing.
Ending Fatigue: "Moonchild" suffers from this big time, with ten minutes of ambient improvisation that goes nowhere. It's almost universally considered the low point of their otherwise beloved debut album.
Hell Is That Noise: John Wetton's bass around the 4:02 and 12:27 mark of "Larks Tongues In Aspic, Part 1".
Also the screeching at the end of "Talking Drum"
And the intro to "Fallen Angel"
Tear Jerker: Crim has a bunch to these, but the saddest probably has to go to "Starless".
Also "Epitaph", the song portion of "Moonchild", "Prelude: Song Of The Gulls", "Islands", "Exiles", "The Night Watch", "Trio", "Fallen Angel", "Waiting Man".
Peter Sinfield may actually be a case of World of Symbolism: he has an entire site dedicated to explaining the elaborate, obscure tapestry of historical, religious, and mythological references in his lyrics. Doesn't make the lyrics themselves any less mind-boggling, though.
