What a fabulous start King Crimsonís seventh date in the support slot with Tool! Patís penchant for on-the-fly sampling and pressing his electronic allsorts button make this version of Dangerous Curves akin to an explosive hybrid of electronica and hard-edged rock. Extraneous non-specific noises swirl and snake around Adrian and Treyís steady pulse whilst Patís clattering and Robertís soaring strings ramp up the excitement levels.
ďThe next song weíre about to about to play for you is so brand new it hasnít been recorded yet but it has been titled...Level FiveĒ says Adrian ahead of what amounts to a crushing beast of a version. Itís the 19th time the piece had been played live since June 2001 and there are moments when it sounds not quite fully tamed, threatening to slip off the leash.
Threading his way through the titanic machinations of LTIA IV Belew pulls off a typically angular solo that nevertheless manages to delve into more reflective areas of his musical personality within the confines of Crim.
Itís a sprightly sprint out of the traps for Frame By Frame and you get a sense that Robert is quite literally hanging on by his fingertips on those where heís doubling notes. Add this to the fact that thereís some gorgeously supple bass-end work from Gunn, and youíve got quite a version of an old KC classic to sit up and take notice of.
