This is where the King Crimson love-in ends.

Some of the stuff i've heard by them is good , other stuff i've heard by them bores the shit out of me.

Now I ask myself , do I want to put in a band into a hall of fame where i've only liked 50% of the material I have heard .. Answer No.

So It's a no from me. And before you reply Boo Boo I didn't vote anything for Yes because in my opinion I hadn't heard enough to judge , In this case I think I have and I have voted No , I am not doing it 'to be an ass' i'm doing it because thats my honest opinion , like it or not.

Yeah, I'd say my favourite band in the world deserve to make it through.

KC is the one band with a good sized discography that I still own every studio album from, because unlike most bands with more than 10 albums, even their weakest albums are still worth having.

For those wanting to get into this band, heres how I'd rank their work, in order.

Great:
ITCOTK
Red
Discipline
Lizard
THRAK
Starless and Bible Black
Three of a Perfect Pair
Larks Tongues in Aspic
The Power to Believe/Happy With What You Have to Be Happy With
In The Wake of Poseidon

Good:
Islands
Beat
ConstruKction of Light

Definitely Yes from me, in fact it was while reading Boo Boo's KC review thread that I decided to join MB. The strength of their body of work is impressive, and their contribution to the progressive rock movement was enormous.

ITCOTK
Lizard
Discipline
Red
Larks Tongues in Aspic

My top 5 KC albums, I have all of their studio albums now and have been playing them constantly over the last few weeks.

I'll probably write a nomination for The Kinks when I reach 100 posts if no one else is up for it.

The only bad thing about The Kink being nominated is the possiblity of them losing. I do not think I could handle it.

So yeah, I think we should consider this a victory for King Crimson.
