2 stars Where's the music???? I know that this is the kind of stuff prog fans seem to really like about King Crimson, but seriously, where's the music???? Once in a while they throw in some song structures, but mostly this is just a noise salad; random noises tossed together. And I suppose I tend to prefer cheese with my salads, and there is little of that to be found here. This live album consists mostly of improvisations recorded at various shows during their Thrak tour. Maybe in smaller doses included within a concert of actual songs, these might not have been so bad, but taken one after another after another, I could not wait for this album to end. Definitely a two-star effort for diehard fans of the band or the improvisation style.
