Pre-dating the grunge movement by nearly 20 years, Robert Fripp's opening riff to 'Red's awesome title track was certainly ahead of its time. It's a huge riff that bridges the gap between hard rock and the kind of music that Nirvana would make a modicum of success out of later on. The remastered album itself is not without other highlights either; maintainig a core three-piece of Fripp, aggressive vocalist John Wetton and prog-rock wonder drummer Bill Bruford they generally keep the music charged and interesting enough to alleviate accusations of navel-gazing. 'One More Red Nightmare' is a reprise of the title track with added vocals and crashing cymbals whilst 'Fallen Angel' provides a contrasting understated, more pastoral moment until the bruising, trumpet-aided chorus rears its head. The final two tracks are less impressive but 'Starless' at least begins and end well with its Mike Oldfield-aping guitars. For once the much-derided genre of prog-rock proved that it could be progressive.
