An fantastic progressive rock album by David Cross (ex-King Crimson) and his band from 1997. Featuring guest appearances from several well-known musicians: Robert Fripp (King Crimson), John Wetton (Asia, King Crimson), and Peter Hammill (Van Der Graaf Generator). Highlights include a cover version of the King Crimson song Exiles, a track composed by David Cross and Robert Fripp and a song composed by David Cross and Pete Sinfield (lyricist/producer fro King Crimson, ELP & Roxy Music). Red Hot. 2005.

David Cross flashed across the progressive music scene as a key member of the incarnation of King Crimson that delivered three high intensity albums, "Larks Tongues in Aspic," "Starless and Bible Black," and "Red" though he was more or less in a cameo role on the latter. Still, it's hard not to associate him with the classic lineup of KC that also featured John Wetton, Bill Bruford, and of course, Robert Fripp.
Then he faded from public hearing but honed his craft through the years. It's worth the time to track down one of the many interviews with Mr. Cross available on-line to fill in the events between "Red" and the 1997 release of "Exiles."
Which brings us to the matter at hand. Mr. Cross has delivered a progressive gem in "Exiles," a fresh-sounding, hard edged recording that showcases his skills as violinist, songwriter, and arranger.
And one may wish to add diplomat, for he brings in former Crimson band mates Fripp and Wetton on a number of tracks. Although Mr. Wetton leaves his bass at home, he contributes only vocals on the tracks Exiles and This Is Your Life, still sounding about like he did some three decades earlier on the original Exiles. Mr. Fripp is clearly present with guitar in hand on Exiles, Tonk, Duo, and Troppo (just the titles alone conjure up the spirit of progressive rock). He sounds relaxed on these tracks, more as though he is part of the band instead of trying to be the beacon for the rest of the band.
Back also are the two noted Crimson lyricists, Peter Sinfield and Robert Palmer-James, though Mr. Sinfield and Mr. Fripp apparently never crossed paths for those hoping for some resolution to that split. Still, we have some new lyrics from Mr. Sinfield to ponder and process.

Some of David Cross' excellent "Exiles" almost sounds like lost sessions of King Crimson's classic "Red" album (especially since Wetton & Fripp guest star on a few tracks), yet Cross manages to make the entire affair a unique experience. Dan Maurer's percussion work is first-rate and sounds frighteningly similar to Bruford, which is no small feat. Highly recommended and enjoyable.

Former King Crimson side man DavidCross has produced a true gem with the release of "EXILES". Utilizing a skillful blend of original musical thought, heavy King Crimson influence(circa 1974-"RED" & "USA") as well asthe guest talents of John Wetton andRobert Fripp, the "EXILES" album is acompelling listening experience. DavidCross is undoubtedly a major talent yet to be discovered by the mainstreamprogressive music enthusiast. AAA+.

...Entirely completed musical perfomance.Especially for those about K.Crimson,VDGG and J.Wetton listeners.Returning in the age of their best works and reminding who they are.Hard to find their better CD the same year.Highly recommended with "Testing to destruction" too.
