Eric Tamm on the greatness of “Starless”

Sunday, December 17th, 2000

I remember reminiscing in this log a while back about driving to school with King Crimson’s “Starless” blasting out the windows, and about the emotions I associate with this memory. Eric Tamm writes:

…in my opinion ["Starless"] is simply the best composition King Crimson ever committed to record. It is also the only King Crimson piece that has ever made me weep - those tears that tend to issue out of a direct confrontation with what we feebly call “artistic greatness” but is really a portentous and rarely glimpsed secret locked away at the heart of human experience.
