3.0 out of 5 stars Dissapointed Feb. 13 2003
Format:DVD
I consider king Crimson to be one of the best if not the best progressive bands. Personally I preferred earlier incarnations of the group. However I just couldn't wait to buy this DVD just to see these guys perform. The only member who seemed to enjoy himself was Bruford. All the rest of the group just stood there like zombies especially Fripp. Granted, they are excellent musicians but I for one would not pay to see these guys live if that is how they perform. There was no life or soul in there performance. On the same day that I bought this DVD I bought Bjork's "Live in Cambridge". It just totally blew me away.

3.0 out of 5 stars A warning Nov. 7 2003
By A Customer
Format:DVD
I gave it three stars because King Crimson is an excellent band - for a lesser band I'd have given it zero. The picture quality is pretty bad - there's a weird reflection of light coming off of the players. It surely doesn't live up to the potential for quality in Dvds and is by far the poorest looking concert DVD I own. Also, the show feels uninspired and certainly not special in any way. The cd Bboom is from the same tour and is a great performance - try that. And there are breaks between each song - why?
If you must see this lineup of Crimson live again and can deal with something substandard then buy it. It is great to view the musicianship up close. But you might be dissapointed like me. They just put out a new DVD which just has to be better than this one.
I'm not trying to trash KC or even the disc, but if I would have read a review like this I might not have bought it. I'm less concearned about saving the money (seems overpriced too though) than I am with saving the dissapointment of having my great memories of those fantastic years altered by this DVD.

5.0 out of 5 stars Deja Mott Jan. 30 2003
Format:DVD
This D.V.D released by the omnipresent Robert Fripp, leader of those pioneers of Progressive Rock (in this case perhaps a more apt title would be Adventurous Rock) King Crimson have at last brought out a recording that does justice to the bands musical ability and visual presence.
From a musical point of view you get over two and a half hours of Crimson music from the amazing Double Trio King Crimson, a title made up as ever by Fripp where, although all six members were on stage at the same time, they were able to break off in mid-song to play as two separate units, and then all come crashing back together with the power of Thor´¿s double sided hammer.
This is used to dramatic effect on such old Crimson standards such as ´¿Lark´¿s Tongue In Aspic Part II´¿ from 1973, (come on if you haven´¿t heard it, aren´¿t you just a little bit curious to find out what a song sounds like with a title like that?), originally recorded when only Robert Fripp & Bill Bruford were in the band. From this line up the others in that period being Jamie Muir on percussion, David Cross on violin, flute & keyboards, plus the mega-talented John Wetton on bass & vocals, but when this 1998 version of the band come in altogether on that most famous of Crimson riffs, the wallpapers shreds from its glue. Most of the well-known songs in the life and times of King Crimson from 1973 onwards are here, with a definitive version of most songs laid down.
Visually the band line up as a back row and a front row. In the back row the two drummers sit on either side of the stage as if castles on a chess board, Bill Bruford in a dapper yellow double breasted suit, whilst Pat Mastelotto effects traditional Rock ´¿n´¿ Roll garb in jeans and T-Shirt.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just GREAT Jan. 12 2003
Format:DVD
I love King Crimson, and any oppurtunity to see them performing live (they haven't been to Oklahoma in 30 years!!) is something I won't turn down.
Where to start? The concert is from a performance in Japan during the 'Thrak' tour of 1995-1996, and is one of their best live performances that have been commercially released. The concert previously appeared on video as "King Crimson: Live in Japan", but trust me, even if you do have that video, or if you don't even have a DVD player....get a DVD player for crying out loud! It's 2003....get with the times!(..)
The band members performances are really the key ingredient here. The ability to change angles and put the individual instruments prevalent in the mix during 3 of the songs is great, and well worth it for those interested in how the group achieves its sound. Trey Gunn, who plays a two-handed 'Warr' guitar, is a treat to watch perform, as he approaches the tunes in such a practical and inventive fashion. He was primarily covering the bass parts at the time, but I just really enjoy watching the two handed approach. The band altogether is not really very showy, and focuses mostly on playing the music, although Tony Levin does have commanding stage presence at times!
I've only mentioned the bass players....Adrian Belew, the lead singer/guitarist is on key the entire show, and watching him during his wilder guitar solos is something that shouldn't be missed. Robert Fripp, the groups leader and self-proclaimed 'Venal Leader', sits in the shadows most of the show, barely flinching or moving a muscle, with the exception of his fingers, which move rather fast and furiously at some points.
