4 stars This is the new album by KING CRIMSON violinist David CROSS. The album features many great legendary guest musicians such as Robert FRIPP, Peter HAMMILL and John WETTON. With that line-up you can't complain. All of them are among the best on their instrument. My favourite tracks on the album are "Exiles" (a new version of that classic KING CRIMSON song), "Fast", "Tonk" and "Troppo". "Fast" is a superb instrumental song where the violin is duelling with the guitar. David CROSS is a magnificent violin player and composer and he is giving the music that extra taste of something special. Many of the tracks are breathing KING CRIMSON, which isn't that surprising with so many KING CRIMSON members participating. Everybody knows what a good guitar player Robert FRIPP are, but here you also got one hell of a guitar player in Paul Clark. He's got a very wild approach to his guitar and makes the music sparkling with life. This album is as good as many of the KING CRIMSON albums. A must have for any fan of KING CRIMSON, and a very good buy for all other true progressive rock fans out there. Recommended.
