2 stars Well, among many errors people are making is to think ProjeKct X is a King Crimson work : it is not. Plus, think about this seriously : these guys decided to record an album while recording an another one ! It's so crazy...

If you listen to the two albums, they are so different, in rythms, textures, the experiences, the voyages, nothing is to be compare. And always remember : they recorded these two *so different* albums in the same studio, with the same personel at the same time. To acheive that, you must be an outstanding and excellent musician. And most of all, you have to switch something in your head. So they switched on.

As the name "ProjeKct X" calls it, this work is from the fusion of four great musicians, not the Crimson guys. If you follow Fripp's work, you understand he finally found musical friends to explore a music style he flirts with very often : "space" music. Sometime, it's very weird, as Fripp can be, then it rocks, then you're beside this great magnificience. With his long story with Fripptonics and his own-designed Soundscapes, Fripp is to me the only musician who succeeds to reach the paradise. Through this very emotionnal musical essay, at the Heaven and Earth song, you'll get there.

You have to be experienced to Fripp's stuff to really understand what's going on, but if you love Crimson stuff, you HAVE to listen to this one.
