There are some nights when the energy flows within Crimso and this gig is certainly one of those. Vrooom though to Dinosaur seem to be possessed of a glowering intensity that one wonders how they will be able to sustain such power. The answer is to dial things down a little with the inclusion of an elegant rendition of One Time. B’Boom and Thrak reconnect Crim to some tumultuous forces including Adrian’s patented power-drill noise generator, Levin’s prowling bass and a brief but nonetheless laser-guided solo from Trey Gunn of the kind he would throw about during ProjeKct 2. Within the space of only a few minutes all kinds of musical landscapes are created and regenerated amidst the ever-changing turbulence.
Collection includes: Mass Romantic (2000); Electric Version (2003); Twin Cinema (2005); Live! (2006); Challengers (2007) and Together (2010).

The first recording of the oratorio in English. This is so wonderful! I truly enjoy this whole CD. I keep playing it over and over!

The suite is from the composer’s neo-romantic period. It was written for the radio audience when Gullberg and Larsson were both employed by Swedish Radio.
