What a blast. This show is all they said it was, plus more. Its magic however cannot be comprehended just by looking at the setlist, which in itself is nothing extraordinary - basically the Trilogy songs, plus the routined Red and Larks II - dull, right? Then you'd be even more surprised to hear how clear, enthusiastic, and happy it all sounds together, probably to finish the 1984 tour with a superb last lap. The Fripp-Belew-Levin-Bruford combo proves its uniqueness, talent, engagement, and a good idea for timeless music, although the peculiar taste of the 80's esthetics is more than obvious. The whole show is one big highlight - but only here Indiscipline, Man With An Open Heart, and Matte Kudasai sound particularly well. If you still hesitate to really enjoy 80's Crimson, this is where you stop.
