Vive to King Crimson.
:: Posted by Russian1979 on January 24, 2016

Hello everyone! I am music-lover from Russia. And i have some questions to this great community. I have a long standing dispute with someone who claims to be a hard-core King Crimson fan.....Please comment his thoughts. As i totally disagree with him.
1 King-Crimson has finished its intellectual activity in 2003. There is no other album that has been recordered after 2003. He is so strange that he is refusing to accept the "Live at the Orpheum" as an an album being published after 2003.....
2. Live albums are a piece of junk, and actually everything that was published after 2003 is not a King Crimson. It is something else.
3. Remastering as he thinks is a musical masturbation

Lament--Another View

"Lament" is one of the pieces from that era that is obviously composed of various "spare parts" contributed by different individuals, yet which coheres and becomes much more than the sum of its parts.

By contrast, "One More Red Nightmare" is an example of that sort of piece which does not cohere and which sounds like an assembly of spare parts (though often excellent ones), full stop.

I have long loved "Lament", and have never been disappointed in any aspect of it. The wicked and disjointed Fripp solo has always been worth the price of admission alone for me. I find it to be an extremely powerful piece of music. As a matter of fact, my only question about it has always been centered around why Bruford found it to be such a disappointment. Ive read that he thought it should have built up to a crescendo of more "epic" proportions, but honestly, I cant imagine what those could have been in his always fertile musical mind.

dkronemyer: I could discuss Lament all day long! The lyrics and music are both just so tremendous and well-paired. Is there any other song, anywhere, that goes through such a transformation of moods, in such a short time, so naturally? (and ends in 7/8?)

About the line "I took my chance and you took yours, You crewed my ship, we missed the tide," to my ear its perfectly fitting with the wild abandon of the last verse. Together with the lines that follow, hes saying "Yes, we tried, failed, and lost, but fuck it, lets live in the here and now, and give ourselves up to the music." Putting them right together like that only accentuates the immediacy and power of music over worldly imperfection.

Lament is a perfectly serviceable KC number, and I have been listening to it a lot lately as I replay yet again the superb Starless box set. Something was bothering me about it, and I finally figured out what it was. Its the last verse where Mr. Wetton declaims, I took my chance and you took yours, You crewed my ship, we missed the tide. By that point in the song, hes almost shouting the words, and the melody is a little bit out of his range. No problem with that, hes an excellent performer. The anomaly is that the quoted lyrics are much more sensitive and introspective, and seemingly belong in an earlier, quiet part of the song, before it cranks up from being a ballad to being a rocker. Im wondering if anybody else has experienced this sensation.

DB was the gateway drug that led to my KC/RF addiction...

Though some few years old, this is is a staggeringly meticulous tribute by soulwax that cant escape your attention.

Thank you to the Thin White Duke

Tom Cruise said this of NASCAR racing legend Jeff Gordon at his retirement benefit. When I think of his passing these words apply to David Bowie as well.

"When youre treated to excellence...for many years, well, thats not something you let go of easily. Transcendence. Few reach it. He did. And although many of want to say Well miss you what we really mean is We thank you. "

One of Bowie's new songs

"Tis a Pity she was a Whore", track #2 on "Black Star" has a sound that brings to mind "The Talking Drum". And the snare drum head is under very high tension, reminiscent of Billy Bs drum sound. These sound like companion pieces.

I think we expect our heroes to live forever...
