The penultimate number of the set from the first night in Philadelphia shows that Level Five has lost none of its ‘shock and awe’ power. Though small, additions such as the rising Mellotron line, in fact, add a lot of drama to the proceedings. The constant baton-passing between the guitars also contains a tension that ramps things up. But hey, that solo from Mel in the end section. Ka-pow!

Just another incredible show, as always.
This was my 2nd show in 3 nights. Somehow, they keep getting better every night. Out standing preformances by all. Mel and Jakko were beyond words. A true joy to watch and listen. Really love how much fun THEY are having!!! It's wonderful to see muscians of this caliber, really listen to and respond to what the other muscians are doing.

King Crimson: Undreamed of Heights of Musical Expression
Eight musicians, at the peak of their skills, blending and weaving as perfectly as any musicians ever have. Many kudos to the sound techs as well - the sound was crystal clear and beautifully mixed. While every one on stage gave mind-blowing performances, it was Mel Collins that took it over the edge for me. There were times when the other seven band members had collectively reached a musical crescendo and frenzy that seemed at the very peak of possibility, Mel would come in with his sax and take it to an entirely new, undreamed of height of musical expression. If you haven't seen King Crimson this tour, stop what you are doing right now, find a show with a ticket available, and snag it. You will not be disappointed.
