4 stars After seven years of inactivity, Robert Fripp had the sudden idea of putting King Crimson back in action in a form of a double trio. This idea materialized by the recording of the mini-album "Vroom" in 1994. After some rehearsals, the newly incarnation of King Crimson arrived in Argentina for a series of concerts that are available here for the first time on DVD. They took the video from the archives and added the sound from the digital multitracks. They had to do some editing on the video and a lot more work with the audio.

There is two shows from the same day. It is shot by TV and don't have the same quality as a professional DVD. In fact, it's pretty evident in the out of focus shots that we have from a camera. They have tried to resolve this issue by incorporating some clear shots in those unclear shots. For the audio, we have a 4 channel DTS sound that i would have appreciated more if my home system didn't have distortion noise on one back speaker. I had the same problem with a Pain of Salvation's DVD that has a 4 channel surround.

The performance and the set list are excellent on both shows, with some old classics like "Red" and "Larks' Tongues in Aspic", that are still enjoyable to listen after many years. This is a band that have made some very original and challenging music over the years, that made them a band ahead of his time. That's why their music is interesting no matter what period we are looking at.

This is not the best way to be introduced to the band, previous DVD are more appropriate, but for The King Crimson fan, this is a nice addition to his collection.
