Song of the Day – “Epitaph” – King Crimson

Here’s a question for you: why does progressive rock, in its way, sound as dated as ragtime? I think Spinal Tap had a lot to do with it, with their pitch-perfect parodies of prog rock. But it also has to do with the fact that no one has thought to resurrect that sound. There was a rockabilly revival, a swing revival, but no progressive revival. So the music stays stuck in a time, a time that was ushered in partly with In the Court of the Crimson King.
