Jakszyk, Fripp, Collins - A King Crimson ProjeKct - A Scarcity Of Miracles

A King Crimson ProjeKct, A Scarcity Of Miracles is the debut release from (Jakko) Jackszyk, (Robert) Fripp, and (Mel) Collins. 

Featuring a dream rhythm section comprising Gavin Harrison and Tony Levin, ASOM is a sonically rich and detailed collection of surprisingly accessible and heartfelt songs which boasts a seductive, widescreen production. 

Echoing elements of King Crimson's unique vocabulary, while presenting a unified group sound far removed from anything previously released under the KC name, A Scarcity Of Miracles manages to be both intimate and epic, complex yet immediate. 

Honouring a great band's legacy, whilst undoubtedly taking it somewhere new, ASOM is the Crimson related album your wife and ballad loving friend might just fall in love with! 

'One of my favourite albums of those where I am a determining element. It has the Crimson gene, but it is not quite KC.' - Robert Fripp 

The album comes as a standard cd, a heavyweight 200gm gatefold vinyl edition and in a deluxe cd / dvda version (which features a 5.1 mix, 24/96 stereo, the ASOM video, and an album's worth of alternate mixes and improvs from the original sessions).

... I am speechless. Whatever the album sounds like, it will probably be very good.


2011 is officially amazing.

yes 2011 is turning out to be the best year for prog since 2009. Lots of new stuff coming out

Im am curious about this. I'm really liking that lineup!

When was it recorded? Will this be the closest thing to a new KC album we will get?

Fripp said it's as close to KC as possible.

This is fascinating news. Fripp had been talking about retirement for a while, I was under the impression that we wouldn't see any new material from him, let alone something like this.

I'm disappointed that Belew isn't involved. Then again that's probably the main reason they're not calling this King Crimson (even though they could probably get away with it if they wanted). I definitely respect them for that.

A bit weird that the rhythm section isn't listed as primary band members.
