Product Description


This 31-minute set of improvs and live sessions reunites the awesomely tight Fripp/Bruford/Belew/Levin axis with additional sonic assault from bassist Trey Gunn and percussionist Pat Mastelotto. Belew bellows three whacked-out songs ("Sex Sleep Eat Drink Dream" is the keeper) and the ensemble's avant garde grit is showcased to great effect on the furious title track. --Jeff Bateman

Product Description

5.0 out of 5 stars great cd but short! Aug. 25 2009
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I had been looking at this cd for quite a while before I decided to purchase it. I am always amaze that KC will put out let's be honest, the same songs on so many cds, but some how, it seem that the songs are always different, so, even though of course I got those songs already, I was really please on the musical arrangement that, well, for me, I never herd them yet, and it was a good surprise. Overy the years I got use to long duration cd from KC and even though I new from one of the reviewer that the cd was about 30 minutes long, I still thought that it was real short for KC, but the price is also lower. I know that it is not a new one by no mean but if someone like me has putting off buying it, go for it, you will be surprise by the music arrangement on this one. I forgot the title, but you have one song that KC sing like so fast that it make your head spint, kind of almost funny but good, very creative. I liked it a lot.,

5.0 out of 5 stars A concise but defintive statement for 90s King Crimson Sept. 18 2001
By tpoisson@noos.fr - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I actually find this short CD a more direct and more rewarding listening experience than the official Thrak album. The sound is a bit rawer, but you can litterally feel the high energy fields flowing between the six players, in a way that is so unique to Crimson.
The title track is a reworking of "Red", from a different perspective : with its coda it reaches an unbelievable intensity, but then it pales in comparison to the track "Thrak" which is the sonic equivalent of a volcano eruption. "One time" is certainly one of the most beautiful songs ever written by Belew ; "Cage" is like a strong and quick uppercut in your jaw.
The balance between sonic assault, experimental improvisation and songs is striking and makes this CD filable along the best of Crimson. Too bad the "Thrak" album did not live up to such high standards.

5.0 out of 5 stars Introducing the KC Double Trio to the world July 20 2007
By DaveBassTaiko - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
A must for all King Crimson fans, this is a 'calling card', as the liner notes suggest, a means to introduce King Crimson's Double Trio lineup to the listening audience. The casual listener unfamiliar with Crimson can find plenty here that will open their ears, if they are willing to be receptive, but the real treat is for dedicated Crimson fans: exceptionally tight preliminary readings of four songs that would later appear on the full-length THRAK CD, as well as two other tracks that didn't make it to that disc. As a musician and Crim aficionado, I find that these tracks offer intriguing glimpses of how these songs were interpreted early on. The arrangements are largely similar to the THRAK versions, but the performances of this particular combination of musicians means that the songs not only stand on their own, apart from THRAK, but also reveal how this group can shape and transform compositions over time. The other songs, "Cage" and "When I say Stop, Continue" merit further listening in their own right, and are not mere filler.

5.0 out of 5 stars If you liked Thrak Feb. 16 2007
By Tywin Seaburgus - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This CD is completly worth your time. I was worried that this would just be an inferior teaser to thrak when I bought it, but it turns out to be a wonderful compliment to thrak. THis CD is rawer and grittier, which is in a way absolutly refreshing if you are used to all their polished studio LPs. Thrak is a little better mixed and is longer and somewhat more satisfying. I can listen to thrak and be done, but this leaves me wanting more King Crimson. I prefer the song Thrak on here as oppossed to on the CD Thrak, since it has an extended middle section. This is significantly different from thrack to warrent music fans a listen.

5.0 out of 5 stars the best 90"line up album May 27 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
For me VROOOM sounds much better than Thrak and the best songs are here (without People of course).Just listen to Vrooom and One Time (longer than the Thrak version), and you will buy this Album. Of course, the live album B'Boom is a very good choice but not better than my 2 favourites : RED and Absent Lovers (6 stars rating). ps:excuse me for my poor english, it's a bit difficult
4.0 out of 5 stars Terrific Gift For Fans - Nice Introduction Too Aug. 29 2000
By M. Phillips - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This album makes a great introduction for those who are new to Crimson. This was first Crimson album I bought, and I was inspired to buy more after listening to it. Having said that, it is clear to me that this EP is a rather terrific example of a band really caring about their fans. Released in 1994 as a prelude to their forthcoming album Thrak, VROOM contains several totally different advance mixes of four tracks from Thrak, plus two songs ("The Cage" and "When I Say Stop, Continue") not included anywhere else. All of the songs are engaging, if a little industrial and lacking in a lighter side. Especially good is the title track, a delightfully serious instrumental. Superb musicianship abounds also, utilizing the double trio format, i.e. two guitarists, two bassists, and two drummers. Personally, I prefer the mixes on Thrak; the separation is better and the guitars stand out better, but this by no means indicates that the EP isn't worth your time, and some will prefer the rougher mixes here. Like I said, it's also a good introduction for non-fans. Well worth the price.
