False End by a Historic Band
Although not as powerful as they used to be, the band still keeps it’s destructive and fearsome force, presenting a surprisingly inventive set. Larks’ Tongues In Aspic - Part II begins by showing what King Crimson were still capable to do even with all the pressure in the air. Lament is a real beast, showing Wetton’s voice in awesome form, Exiles starts a little bit hidden, but quickly expands itself to it’s feral state. The Improv: A Voyage To The Centre Of The Cosmos is a bit similar to Improv: Asbury Park in the beginning, but later turns into a radically different piece. Right after an esplendid rendition of Easy Money, another improvisation is born, Providence has some tension and mystery around it that refuses to vanish until the piece’s last part, where Cross show all of his violin skills over Fripp’s wah-wah distorted guitar playing. After tight and forceful playing, the band is still surpring with a violent Fracture and a chaotic Starless. As the last piece, 21st Century Schizoid Man ends the set featuring all the four members’ skills that made this line-up so historic.
