Overview

Consisting of Robert Fripp, Trey Gunn, Adrian Belew, and Pat Mastelotto, King Crimson embarked on a tour of Europe to promote its 2000 album The ConstruKction of Light. The limited-edition, three-disc live set Heavy ConstruKction was recorded at various points throughout that tour, and was intended to set the stage for the band's arrival in the U.S. that fall. The first two discs include a full set list encompassing both old and new Crimson compositions, and the second disc also features a bonus CD-ROM performance video. The third disc culls 14 of the group's best improvisations from the tour. Obviously, it's a set for die-hard fans only.

King Crimson 2000's European Tour from May/June 2000 is captured in fine fashion on this terrific 3 CD set release from Discipline Global Mobile. The set includes 2 CDs of unadulterated King Crimson that focuses on material from the recent The ConstuKction Of Light CD, and 1995's THRAK. The third CD has Pat Mastelotto and Bill Munyun's ProjeKct X-like touch and consists entirely of improvisations taken from the tour. It is however a little more accessable than the Heaven & Earth release from ProjeKct X, and less of a conglomeration of improvs as those that can be found on the THRaKaTTaK release. Indeed, the tracks are interspersed with audience applause, so there is no mistaking the context. If all that wasn't enough, CD 2 includes a Window Media Player format video that contains 45 minutes of very good footage of the band's performance in Rome, Italy. Highlights are Larks 4 and an improv leading up to it. Close ups of Robert Fripp's finger work alone make this a must have release. As an added bonus, the unbelieving can see for themselves why flash photography at a King Crimson concert is a no no. The band just doesn't want its audience to do it - 'nuff said! So if you are looking for a momento of the shows you went to, or just want this because you missed them on tour, either way you shouldn't need to find too many excuses to ask for this as a Christmas present if you can't buy it for yourself. You won't be dissappointed!
