And again... May 11, 2008
Written by Spingere
Iíve been playing this set over and over again. It fits the hot, muggy weather weíre going through (Iím writing this during the few days of the British summer). Even the long pause while we wait for the clueless man to hand in his film has an energy about it. Thrush is sublime , Sus Tayn Z is amazing and House II is on fire.
Top flight improv with that vein of P2 humour showing through in places.
What a Show! May 9, 2008

I was in attendance at this show and it was one to remember. I was very close to the stage; the now defunct Odeon was SRO. Thinking it would be clever, I yelled at the band, "Are we on Zarg yet?" after the song which I later came to know as Light ConstruKction. Mr. Fripp, I think, found it more annoying than clever. He pointed a finger at me and the listener can hear him say on this recording, "Who is this guy!?" LOL. Mr. Gunn merely shrugged at me. Mr. Belew replied, "Thatís in a different universe!"
ProjeKct 2 certainly took us to undiscovered worlds that night. It was the fist time I had heard the various ConstuKctions and other seeds of future Crimson tunes. The real shocker was when Mr. Fripp exited the stage mid-song after a photo flash went off. I donít know who was more surprised, the audience or the rest of the band. I have to admire a person who sticks to his guns, though. I personally wasnít too upset; I was more excited to see what would happen next. That sort of thing has the potential to destroy a concert, but as Mr. Fripp says, "Every act of the artist, intentional or unintentional, is part of the performance." In this case, it heightened the drama, the conflict made for a better show. When the triumphant band returned with Mr. Fripp tossing the exposed film back into the audience, we realized what a special thing the relationship between the artist and audience is. The rest of the show was more of a treat for both parties; nothing was taken for granted anymore. The band was totally on fire for the rest of the night!
The absolute highlight for me was "Deception of the Thrush" It was the first time I had ever heard that song. I saw King Crimson the next time they were in Cleveland and they performed "Thrush," and I have many versions of it by various ProjecKts and Crimson. Listening to it again on this download, my opinion is confirmed that this is my favorite performance of it. There is something that is especially transcendent about this one that always stuck in my memory. Thank you for making this concert available!!!

I rarely give out five stars but this show is at least four-and-a-half. ProjeKct music is normally challenging, exciting, provoking; this is ProjeKct music to peel paint, to frighten cows, to crumble empires. Bring fresh underwear.
