5 stars THE HALL BECAME THE KING'S HALL LAST NIGHT! Wow! What a show! I just saw KC on their Radical Action tour last night at the Riverside Theater in Milwaukee, WI! Tremendous!! This cd/dvd 4 disc set does a very good job of encapsulating what we saw last night. I, not being the absolute card carrying KC fan was blown away! Although there was no way that I was going to miss the chance to see this classic group (ensemble)! Hell, none of us are getting any less finite! It was so impressive to just see consummate musicians performing their craft! No pussyfooting around, just damn fine music! Although this may or may not be the way many a long time fan of KC who are far more knowledgeable about them and their music feel, I personally love this box set. Both the live cd's and the fine blu ray! To me the interpretations on this set aren't quite as cold and sterile as mostof the original studio recordings. It was cool to see Robert Fripp and all of his cohorts as they directed crimson waves of energy deep into our auditory cortices! It was an awesome experience! I really love this set and although I was a slightly greater than slight fan of the band before, this has raise their stock in my book substantially! To anyone who likes KC but doesn't love their music or doesn't know it too well, I highly recommend this set! It is a monumental statement and a fine, classy representation of a considerable overview of this amazing King's oeuvre! Well that's it, take care and enjoy God's gift of music!
