Booklet
This is a two-CD collection capturing King Crimson during a pair of multi-night stands at The Longacre Theater in New York City (November 20-25, 1995) and The Metropolitan Theater in Mexico City (August 2-6, 1996). This double-trio lineup includes the talents of: Robert Fripp (guitar, soundscapes), Adrian Belew (guitar, vocals), Trey Gunn (touch guitar), Tony Levin (basses, stick), Bill Bruford (percussion of all sorts), and Pat Mastelotto (percussion of all sorts). Vrooom Vrooom includes much of the same frenetic energy and immaculate sonics that awaited attendees of these performances. Happily much of the repertoire focuses on materials from the 1995 studio release, Thrak, King Crimson's first in over a decade. Likewise, both the Mexico City and New York City sets are laden with the profound and otherwise solicitous vibes that present themselves whenever this band is running at full capacity on all six cylinders. The Mexico City disc opens with a quintet of instrumentals and improvisations circa the Thrak album: "Vroom Vroom," "Coda: Marine 475," "B'Boom," and the title track, "Thrak," as well as more structured compositions such as "Dinosaur." Likewise, the N.Y.C. disc includes "People" and "Sex Sleep Eat Drink Dream," as well as profound renderings of "One Time." Of special note is the Belew-led impromptu cover of the Beatles' "Free as a Bird" and the King Crimson original "Walking on Air," the latter of which is a one-off bonus track from a Wiltern Theater performance in Los Angeles on June 30, 1995. Additionally, there are quite a few tracks that hark back to previous incarnations of the mighty King Crimson, especially the '80s quartet of Fripp, Belew, Bruford, and Levin. "Three of a Perfect Pair," "Elephant Talk," "Indiscipline," "Neurotica," and "Thela Hun Ginjeet" are among the tracks given the intensity of a sonic triple espresso. Longer and more complete recordings from these specific runs have likewise been made available. ~ Lindsay Planer

Booklet
After three years and four albums, the '80s incarnation of King Crimson, featuring Adrian Belew (guitar/vocals/drums), Bill Bruford (drums/percussion), Robert Fripp (guitar) and Tony Levin (bass/stick/synth/vocal) wrapped up their initial collaborative efforts at the conclusion of their 1984 North American tour. Absent Lovers (1998) presents the July 11, 1984 parting performance at the Spectrum in Montreal, Quebec in its entirety. As the show was simulcast on FM radio, decent sounding copies have been traded amongst the faithful for years, although not in such stunning fidelity or completeness. While the contents draw primarily from the Discipline (1981), Beat (1982) and Three of a Perfect Pair (1984) long-players, the quartet likewise dip into the vintage Krim catalog. Searing and nimble readings of the title instrumental from the LP Red (1974), as well as the second movement of Larks' Tongues in Aspic (1973) are rendered with arguably more energy and aggression than the decade-old originals. They also equal the intensity of recent arrivals "Thela Hun Ginjeet" and "Sleepless," especially with the addition of Belew's incisive lyrics and duelling fretwork with Fripp. Belew's versatility is prominent as he counters with the gorgeous "Matte Kudasai," the surreal automobile anthem "Dig Me" and the intricately entwined melodies heard in "Frame by Frame," "Three of a Perfect Pair" and "Elephant Talk." The formidable rhythm section are accounted for with Levin commanding the lower registers and providing the occasional backing vocal. While he is flawless throughout, his contributions to "Sleepless" and "Industry" are nothing short of definitive and helped delineate the resonance of this lineup. Overall, Absent Lovers is a perfect way for enthusiasts to remember this aggregate or for the curious to hear what all the fuss is about. ~ Lindsay Planer

The Night Watch is a terrific live album capturing the third incarnation of King Crimson -- featuring Robert Fripp, John Wetton, Bill Bruford, and David Cross -- at the Amsterdam Covertgebouw on November 23, 1973. Some Crimson fans consider this lineup to be the most musically adept in the band's history, and the dense, yet dexterous, playing will tell any curious listener exactly why this is so. It remains an album that will primarily please the diehards, but for those fans, The Night Watch is an essential purchase. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine

Booklet
Consisting of Robert Fripp, Trey Gunn, Adrian Belew, and Pat Mastelotto, King Crimson embarked on a tour of Europe to promote its 2000 album The ConstruKction of Light. The limited-edition, three-disc live set Heavy ConstruKction was recorded at various points throughout that tour, and was intended to set the stage for the band's arrival in the U.S. that fall. The first two discs include a full set list encompassing both old and new Crimson compositions, and the second disc also features a bonus CD-ROM performance video. The third disc culls 14 of the group's best improvisations from the tour. Obviously, it's a set for die-hard fans only. ~ Steve Huey

Booklet
This compilation presents two very different views into the performance life of King Crimson. The first disc gathers live material from the 1971/1972 quartet, a majority of which was culled from the Live at Summit Studios, Live at Plymouth, 1971, and Live in Detroit, MI 1971 archival recordings. The second disc, subtitled "Schizoid Men," contains a single 54-minute rendering of "21st Century Schizoid Man" that consists of ten separate sax and guitar solos seamlessly combined together. These were taken from various performances throughout the 1971/1972 era -- although exact dates are conspicuously absent in the packaging. Although the track is indexed for easier access to the edits, there are no interruptions or fades from blow to blow. Up until the late '90s, there was precious little in the way of legitimate live recordings featuring the combo of Boz Burrell (bass/vocals), Mel Collins (saxes/flute/mellotron), Ian Wallace (drums), and Robert Fripp (guitar/mellotron). Ladies of the Road provides something for both the casual enthusiast as well as the hardcore collector by gathering not only a generous sampling of prime moments from the archival releases, but also an intense and previously unearthed rendering of Donovan's "Get Thy Bearings" -- which had also been covered to great effect by the original 1969 incarnation of King Crimson. The origins of the highly stylized "Schizoid Men" disc can be traced back over a half-decade to the Schizoid Man, No. 2 (1996) EP, which included five independent recordings of the song. In addition to the original LP version and edit, there are three respective live observations by the 1969, 1972, and 1974 combos. Although the idea may seem a bit over the top, the execution is flawless. On this disc, the various solos -- all taken from shows during the 1972 North American tour -- are spliced together and present a frenetic improvisational masterpiece. This is done by providing a rare insight into the real-time evolutionary processes involved in perpetually reinventing "21st Century Schizoid Man" live on-stage night after night. The song has not only become King Crimson's signature composition, but also the only tune performed by every incarnation of the band...so far. ~ Lindsay Planer
