I'm extremely excited about this. Fripp is calling it a King Crimson ProjeKct. With the rhythm section of Tony Levin and Gavin Harrison, I am treating this as new Crimson album. I wonder what it will sound like!
An earlier entry in his diary mentions that they are looking at this May to release it. Along with Lark's Tongues, Starless and Bible Black, the Discipline Trilogy, and Jakko's 5.1 mix of Thrak, this is just getting more and more exciting.
Just ordered - thanks for the heads -up! Really looking forward to this - NEW KC (almost) music - a real treat - still very anxious for the next batch of KC releases (Starless & Larks Tongue) - rumored Sept release - seems too long to wait!
Pre-ordered mine yesterday. ProjeKct or no, I see this as new Crimson. And it comes out the day after I return from a trip out of the country! Even without hearing it I am excited about the fact that it is in surround.
It arrived yesterday and I am impressed with the Surround mix on first listen.
The music was not what I was expecting though I am not sure what that was, No compalints though. will need to listen at greater volume when the kids and neighbors are out before giving it a vote assumeing that this will ahve its own little voting section.
I suppose yes the sound is closer to the title track, however IMHO the title track is the weakest of the tracks, on first listen. I dont think its as 'commercial' as a King Crimson album if that is also a bit cryptic.
Well - it's made it across the pond and found it's way to merry old Connecticut! First full listen and I'm very happy - will have to dig deeper before I say my peace. Excellent 5.1 lossless mix - very atmospheric - good job by all!
