2 stars Vrooom is an EP released in 1994 from progressive rock act King Crimson. The EP preceded the first King Crimson album in eleven years called THRAK and four out of the six tracks on the EP also appear on that album. I´m not sure if they are exactly the same versions as those on the album but they are close to being the same.

What makes this EP worth investing in if you already got the album is the two non-album tracks Cage and When I Say Stop, Continue. Cage is a fast and very short song ( 1:35 minutes). I enjoy this track and especially Adrian Belew´s fast spoken vocal parts but also his melodic ditto. It´s not essential in any way though. When I say stop, continue is an instrumental song. It´s not very interesting and not worth buying this EP for.

The musicianship and the production is excellent. Nothing to complain about there.

Vrooom is a fan release and allthough the music is generally great I´ll rate this EP 2 stars as I really don´t see anyone else but the diehard fans purchasing this one. You should purchase THRAK instead.
