up to date and varied April 10, 2007

It has been mentioned before - it really is worthwile checking out indivudual downloads again and again, since they might vary quite a bit from each other. I am not the kind of fan who is the completist. If versions are too similar to each other, I choose rather sth. new - no matter how good the band is. However, with Crimson,. and especially with the ProjeKcts it is very different.
ProjeKct II has released quite different material and over all I would say I like the "Live Groove " version as an intro to P II best, since it is rather concise and most likely to be the one that caters to those Crimson fans who prefer written material. This set here, however, is the most varied I have heard up to now. It is - for the first time - a mix of improvs and acoustic songs, which gives the entire concert a nice touch, especially, if you hear it loud and in a concentrated fashion. The P II stuff is very much based in the - at the time - growing field of electroinca and drum and bass (check out e.g. the superb drumming on Heavy ContruKction) but with a Miles Davis touch for improvs... This set also "rocks" more out than the studio album and really offers sth. new from tune to tune. The Vroom version is a club version and also quite spectecular in its "non rocking" approach.
Overall, a set one defintly should download.
I hope there will also be more ProjeKcts in the near future.

This show is in a word: spectacular. Iím somewhat of a newcomer to the ProjeKcts, but this stuff really knocks my socks off. We get the sound of a band that is deeply engrossed in their music, unlike some of the TPTB shows IMO, even though I love those. It seems like these guys are just knee deep in fresh music which is a change from their usual performance of already written songs. Theyíre fired up and ready to rumble. Adrian, pumped as ever, delivers some excellent versions of classic solo/crim tunes alike, giving the boys a break to recharge their batteries. Iím still surprised at the imrpovizational ability of this band. I look forward to many more P2 shows!
