4 stars David Cross played violin on the albums "Red" en "USA" from King Crimson and he's also to be seen on the DVD "Beatclub 1973" during the track "Larks tongues in aspic", along with a very young Bill Bruford. On this album David not only showcases his skills on the violon but he is a very good composer too, all compositions sound strong and dynamic featuring spectacular play on the acoustic - and electric violin. There is often an ominous climate with some fiery and heavy eruptions, in the vein of .. indeed, the album "Red" (like the songs "Inc", "Black ice" and "Grinfixer"). The vocals are OK with a slight similarity to Roger Waters (cynical undertone) and John Wetton (powerful and melancholic). The keyboards sound modern and tasteful but in the background because the stage is for David Cross, he impresses me very much on this great album!
