Imagine a 20+ minute composition (such as "Close to the Edge") by this foursome!
  • The first album U. K. is a prog lover's "must own". 2nd lp Danger Money has it's moments (Rendezvous 6.02 and Danger Money tracks esp.) Live album was a let down, dammit!
  • Truly one of the pinnacles of progressive rock.
  • who's that pretty lady in the photo, oh wait it's jobson
  • Bruford is absolute monster on The Only Thing She Needs. The entire band's chemistry is great on both their self-titled and Danger Money, but Bill's masterful drumming is the real highlight for me.

  • 1st one the best tho
  • Last FM needs to do something about these dumb and ignorant bands who take the names of established artists. This KU album should not be included here it is NOT a UK album.
  • Great music. It's a real pity, that THE name - ironically - makes them so much harder to explore.
