Traffic by far, Steve Winwood is one of my favorite singers.

I had to turn into Traffic, though Crimson are definitely Kings of prog-rock.

X2 plus add Dave Mason to that and it's hard to beat. One of my all time favorite bands

And I'll add King Crimson still doing extra things. Can't wait to see them again in July at the Count Basie Theatre on the Jersey Shore!

Four years later and I still think that King Crimson is something extra special.

Exclamation Re: King Crimson vs. Traffic!

I find some of King Crimson's tracks such as these to be ethereal:

I Talk to the Wind
Epitaph
The Court of the Crimson King
In the Wake of Poseidon

But many of their tracks such as these are brass heavy and absolutely grate on me:

21st Century Schizoid Man
Cat Food (and almost all of the Poseidon album)
