Wow. I was simply astounded when i first heard this. Having previously only heard KC's debut "In the Court of the Crimson King", i wasn't expect this. A huge compression of griding guitar riffs and stupifying bass, only upstaged on occasion by drumming that reminds me of the time my pet frog was squashed by 7 falling refrigerators. "VROOM" (to give it it's correct title) opens out into "Marine 475", with a seamlessly smooth change in musical themes. "Dinosaur" is one of my favourites from the album, with Adrian Belew screaming "I'M A DINOSAUR!" as if he really means it.
There are a couple of odd intermission pieces like "Radio" that help split up the mayhem of the bookend renditions of "VROOM" and "VROOM VROOM". But nothing in this universe can quite prepare you for the moment when "B'Boom" segues into the title cut. I believe the name "THRAK" comes from the sound that the guitars make on the track. Indeed, you can hear them THRAKing away, up and down. By that same concept, "B'Boom" is named after the b'booming of the drums that play solo on this track, and "VROOM" again relates to guitar VROOMing.
The point is, this album is not only great, but significantly different to anything i'd heard before. As a bonus, this edition comes in Papersleeve, with sleve notes that include a handful of reviews, which make excellent toilet reading. "...not talented enough..." says one review... It just shows you how much some tabloid quality journalists get paid to review music that they haven't actually listened to.
