SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Honorary Collaborator
3 stars "Deception of the Thrush: A Beginners Guide to ProjeKcts" is a compilation album by UK progressive rock act King Crimson. The album was released through Discipline Global Mobile in October 1999. "Deception of the Thrush: A Beginners Guide to ProjeKcts" features tracks from the "ProjeKct" albums by the band. The ProjeKct concept is a concept the band invented to be able to tour and record music without having to gather all six members of the band at the same time, but rather work in smaller groups while still using the King Crimson name. Wether it be three or four members of the band playing together in different constellations guitarist and band founder Robert Fripp is the only constant. I havenīt heard the original "ProjeKct" albums so I donīt know how much youīre missing out on by only owning "Deception of the Thrush: A Beginners Guide to ProjeKcts" but for me personally this compilation is more than enough.

The music on the album is mostly instrumental improvisations, but there are what seems like some structured pieces and bits in the tracks. The music is rather experimental rock/ fusion and the playing is very impressive at times. Personally I prefer more structured compositions and after a while I begin to lose interest and even though the music is quite atonal and challenging it kind of becomes background music to me. Not because the music isnīt interesting, but because it lacks memorable hooks. Thatīs of course an aquired taste and Iīm sure the more dedicated fans will enjoy this more than I do. The production and the musicianship on the compilation are as expected excellent. A 3.5 star (70%) rating is deserved.

2 stars This album is proposed a "beginners guide to Projekct", and so it features various tracks from the ProjeKcts albums, anyway this work is much less interesting. The problem is the fractal nature of it, being condemned from the very start to contain extracts from various works; this fact influenc ... (read more)

3 stars Confession: I don't actually own this CD. However, I own all the ProjeKCt albums, both live and studio, and I was fortunate enough to see ProjeKCt Two in concert, so I know the material. After the "Thrak" period, the "double trio" lineup of King Crimson split into various "projects" featuring ... (read more)

4 stars It is not a disk prog, but a disk of "rhytmic noises"! "Deception Of The Trush" is the summary of the project "ProjeKcts" where the group came split in four. And it tested in absolute manner. And this is the truth progressive. Fortunately it is not weighing and it am listened to pleasantly. Bu ... (read more)
