yeah King Crimson's 70s run of albums is pretty great, hard to pick a favourite... Larks Tongues and Red in a joint tie maybe

Gentle Giant can be a bit of a harder prog pill to swallow, I guess 'The Power And The Glory' might be their most accessable album. would recommend
please do not mock my potato.

I'd go with "Lark's Tongue" but I really love "Red" and "Lizard" (which a lot of people hate).

Right now:

I didn't dislike it as such but that one took me a few attempts to get into... got a kind of medieval folk feel.

"WeirdOs" by O. Now here's something different. The band's basically a percussionist, a baritone sax, and a producer. The sax is often fogged up so that it sounds like an electric guitar. It's unclassifiable, but uptempo and there are a lot of nods to metal and punk. I like it! Not really a bad cut on the disc.

"Proxy Music" by Linda Thompson. Linda can't sing anymore so she recruited guests to perform her new compositions. Pretty good.

Boston band, so lester might have heard of them, though it's not his kind of music



Can't find a copy of the original soundtrack; this is my 2nd "inspired by" album.

The cover makes it look like jazz, but it's actually ambient.

so apparently I have been putting off listening to this for the past 31 years. today was the day. found it for £1 in a charity shop

It sounds 100% like I expected. a bunch of absolutely straight ahead covers in a GnR stylee. doubt I'll ever intentionally listen to it again ...no pasta la vista

"Love Heart Cheat Code" by Hiatus Kaiyote. ALterrnative R&B, really creative and well-done even if it's not really a genre I dig. Check out her trippy cover of "White Rabbit" if you're curious:  https://youtu.be/67Cw0OoCnIM?si=WPoNfRIGc3OZRX5Z
