Beat is the ninth studio album by progressive rock band King Crimson, originally released in June 1982 via E.G. Records.

This was the first King Crimson album to be released with the same line-up as the previous Discipline (1981), however the recording sessions were reportedly fractious.

Fripp has said this about the album's production: "At the time, Bill and Adrian thought that Beat was better than Discipline. For me, this is an indication of how far the band had already drifted from its original vision. The group broke up at the end of Beat... I had nothing to do with the mixing of Beat, nor did I feel able to promote it. Somehow we absorbed that fact, and kept going."

Belew would later go on to say, "Beat was the most awful record-making experience of my life and one I would never choose to repeat”.

Regardless, the album was commercially successful reaching ##39 on the UK and #52 on the US Billboard 200 albums charts, and the group was well-received on tour.

Members of King Crimson that recorded this album were:

  • Robert Fripp – guitars, keyboards
  • Adrian Belew – guitars, lead vocals
  • Tony Levin – bass, chapman stick, backing vocals
  • Bill Bruford – drums

This album is a Robert Fripp approved reissue on 200 gram black vinyl with a printed insert, pressed in Europe via Discipline Global Mobile, Panegyric and Inner Knot.
