Going deeper into David Cross' discography, I've reached his second solo alum - The Big Picture. Compared to the follow- up Testing To Destruction from 1994, this 1992 album is clearly more consistent and coherent. It lacks the tedious improvisational numbers of Testing To Destruction, but it also lacks the standout tracks of that album. I was previously familiar with a live version of one of the album's tracks, namely the opener Nurse Insane which featured on the excellent live record Alive In The Underworld.

The sound and production values of The Big Picture are those of its time, namely the early 90's. Especially the drums sound somewhat dated, but it is not a big problem for me. The material here is generally of a good standard, and it is a rather enjoyable album from the ex-King Crimson violinist. It does not sound like King Crimson, but nonetheless might appeal to some fans of that band.
