4 stars Well what we have here is a release by a group of musicians known collectively as PROJEKCT X. The same group of muscians that are also known as KING CRIMSON! I can see where this would and could be a bit confusing,since this release seems to be neither fish nor fowl.I ran across this release at a KING CRIMSON show in Nashville,Tn. and at this point the lp THE CONSTRUCKTION OF LIGHT had not yet been released.Robert Fripp's sister was along for this tour and was promoting the release as a preview of what was to be KC's next and newest release,and of course, I had to pick up a copy.I am very glad that I did!As one who is lucky enough to have seen this band live many times,(the first time was in 1973 with GENTLE GIANT as a warm up),I have to say this really is one of my faves! Before the Nashville show began I got to hear the practice sessions preceeding the show and with no vocals,it reminds me very much of PROJECKT X.I think that I may even like it a bit better the CONSTRUCKTION OF LIGHT.Not that the vocals are bad,but the X release is just so much more of the pure sound of the band.I have played this for many friends and they also tend to agree with my take on this one.So please don't be swayed by any negitive comments or reviews,just give it a listen and judge for yourself.
