The band members performances are really the key ingredient here.

Format: DVD
It was a thrilling visual document of Crimson's stunning return to form after a too-long hiatus, and it was an exploration of the then-fairly-new DVD format that's much more difficult than it needs to be. My rating is an average: I give five stars for the performance & extras, maybe 2.5 for the "user-tailored interactive experience" of navigating the damn thing. Deja Vrooom is probably a proposition for the already-converted anyway, so anyone new to this band and/or this lineup would be better advised to check out Thrak or Vrooom Vrooom first.

First the cons. Rather than simply listing items, the menus cycle through them one at a time as if it's a memory game. Trying to scroll among them is annoying at best - sometimes hitting 'up' moves to the box on the right, sometimes 'right' means down, etc. The novelty of using a KC title for each function ("The Mincer" for a short essay on critics, "Vector Patrol" for choosing custom settings) is cute but far too confusing. The video quality isn't spectacular and there's an occasional lighting-halo effect around the players. It's not terrible, and this kind of raw powerful music really doesn't need slick super-sharp visuals, but it doesn't need to be this distracting either.

Pros: the performance itself is a stonker. The six-man lineup injects new life into older KC material and shows a smoothness & cohesion even beyond their studio recordings. It's always fascinating to watch just *how* everybody makes all that noise with their instrument of choice (or instrumentS in the case of Tony Levin - check that electric double-bass!). The skill and grace with which it's all pulled off is of course extraordinary.

Format: DVD Verified Purchase
I've been a King Crimson fan ever since a Maryland AM radio station first played "I Talk to The Wind" in, um, was it 1969? Took their screaming-face album in to my high school 'Basic Musicianship' class the following week and thoroughly confounded the excellent instructor who couldn't make up his mind who was leading the band -- the drummer or the flautist. I was also lucky enough to see the Thrak tour at Berkeley's Greek Theatre, which I rate as the best concert performance I've ever seen, opening with a perfect Bruford/Mastelotto Taiko duet.
It's hard for any reproduction to match a live performance like that, but this DVD comes very close. Alas, the Taiko piece is not included. But what a performance! What excellent production sound and video! Not quite as much Fripp as I'd like to see. But it's great to see, up close, what a fine guitarist Belew is. And watching Bruford pick his unthinkable rimshots in his DVD-angle in "Indiscipline" is a spellbinding study on its own.
Excellent performances by all.
If you like King Crimson's recent incarnations, this is an absolute must-own.

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.

Format: DVD
This DVD is (so far) the pinnacle of music concert video releases. The 5.1 Digital Sound is the true way to hear the 6 members of King Crimson. Their performance is basically flawless, and though there are better Thrak tour performances, this one is wonderful. (I did say flawless, what can be better? I guess flawless with an extra...???) The whole DVD is great, including the Schizoid game, the road movies, the hidden Fripp Soundscape footage, the history of the band, you can even set the bias of the show to the band member you prefer, when available. My personal favorites: One Time, Dinosaur, Talking Drum/Larks' Tounges Part 2, and Three Of A Perfect Pair. Bruford's drum intro to Indiscipline is amazing. Etc, etc! This title was actually rumoured to be used as a sampler for all new DVD players with dts format, though I don't know which brands this would include. I think that would be a great idea too. A must have DVD!
