4 stars This EP was released as a preview to their resurgence after a ten year absence with the album Thrak. The news that King Crimson was back is enough for a good rating. And the music on the disk helps as well.

Four of the six songs on this disk appear on the Thrak album. Three of the songs are labeled "single edit". This is funny, because two of the three, VROOOM and THRAK are each a few minutes longer than the Thrak versions.

Of the other two songs, Cage is the better one. Although it's very short, it is quite energetic, and better than the longer live version on Heavy Construction. When I Say Stop, Continue is good, but it is just a vehicle for a Fripp guitar solo.

Evolver | 4/5 |
