"King Crimson is, as always, more a way of doing things. When there is nothing to be done, nothing is done: Crimson disappears. When there is music to be played, Crimson reappears. If all of life were this simple". Robert Fripp

King Crimson was conceived in November 1968 and born on January 13th 1969 in the Fulham Palace Cafe, London (Fripp/Ian McDonald/Greg Lake/Michael ... Read more in Amazon's King Crimson Store

4.0 out of 5 stars Short but sweet 11 Dec 2000
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Anyone who knows King Crimson will be aware of the slightly complicated history. Multiple line-ups giving rise to a plethora of musical styles but always with the ever present Robert Fripp. The double-trio represented on this album possibly exibiting a pinacle in musicianship rarely seen in the world of Rock and Roll (if that is what you can call it). Robert Fripp found his foil in the shape of Adrian Belew who along with stallwart Crimson sticks-man Bill Bruford and "veteran" bassist Tony Levin are joined by the techno rhythm section of Pat Mastelotto & Trey Gunn. The result is awesome Prog-Rock, Heavy Metal or Jazz? Who knows. What this album contains is some of the most memorable tracks without a hook-line that you will wish to remember

4.0 out of 5 stars This is where it all began 6 Oct 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
ProjeKcts, ConstruKction, THRaKaTTaK - this is where it all began. The double trio in its infancy performing songs that they were considering for release the next year. Chances are, if you've already heard the result, 1995's "THRAK", everything will all be very familiar: precise percussion, Fripp's wiry guitar antics and some of the most dynamic rhythms music has to offer. Add the astounding Trey Gunn into this mix, and what you have is a short album that seriously whets the appetite.
"VROOOM" fits in well with Crimsons' chronology as a stop-gap between "Three of a Perfect Pair" and "THRAK" - in the same way the ProjeKcts were a stop-gap between "THRAK" and "ConstruKction of Light".
For Crimson fanatics, this album is a must - for newbies, buy it anyway, see if you like it, then head straight for "THRAK"!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars A concise but defintive statement for 90s King Crimson 19 Sep 2001
By tpoisson@noos.fr - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I actually find this short CD a more direct and more rewarding listening experience than the official Thrak album. The sound is a bit rawer, but you can litterally feel the high energy fields flowing between the six players, in a way that is so unique to Crimson.
The title track is a reworking of "Red", from a different perspective : with its coda it reaches an unbelievable intensity, but then it pales in comparison to the track "Thrak" which is the sonic equivalent of a volcano eruption. "One time" is certainly one of the most beautiful songs ever written by Belew ; "Cage" is like a strong and quick uppercut in your jaw.
The balance between sonic assault, experimental improvisation and songs is striking and makes this CD filable along the best of Crimson. Too bad the "Thrak" album did not live up to such high standards.

5.0 out of 5 stars Introducing the KC Double Trio to the world 20 July 2007
By DaveBassTaiko - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
A must for all King Crimson fans, this is a 'calling card', as the liner notes suggest, a means to introduce King Crimson's Double Trio lineup to the listening audience. The casual listener unfamiliar with Crimson can find plenty here that will open their ears, if they are willing to be receptive, but the real treat is for dedicated Crimson fans: exceptionally tight preliminary readings of four songs that would later appear on the full-length THRAK CD, as well as two other tracks that didn't make it to that disc. As a musician and Crim aficionado, I find that these tracks offer intriguing glimpses of how these songs were interpreted early on. The arrangements are largely similar to the THRAK versions, but the performances of this particular combination of musicians means that the songs not only stand on their own, apart from THRAK, but also reveal how this group can shape and transform compositions over time. The other songs, "Cage" and "When I say Stop, Continue" merit further listening in their own right, and are not mere filler.

5.0 out of 5 stars If you liked Thrak 17 Feb 2007
By Tywin Seaburgus - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This CD is completly worth your time. I was worried that this would just be an inferior teaser to thrak when I bought it, but it turns out to be a wonderful compliment to thrak. THis CD is rawer and grittier, which is in a way absolutly refreshing if you are used to all their polished studio LPs. Thrak is a little better mixed and is longer and somewhat more satisfying. I can listen to thrak and be done, but this leaves me wanting more King Crimson. I prefer the song Thrak on here as oppossed to on the CD Thrak, since it has an extended middle section. This is significantly different from thrack to warrent music fans a listen.

5.0 out of 5 stars the best 90"line up album 27 May 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
For me VROOOM sounds much better than Thrak and the best songs are here (without People of course).Just listen to Vrooom and One Time (longer than the Thrak version), and you will buy this Album. Of course, the live album B'Boom is a very good choice but not better than my 2 favourites : RED and Absent Lovers (6 stars rating). ps:excuse me for my poor english, it's a bit difficult

5.0 out of 5 stars A great comeback! 3 Aug 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
After having released some rather tedious, wave-pop-influenced albums in the 80's, King Crimson returned to top-form with their first new studio-record since over 10 years. This is uncompromising, aggressive avantgarde-rock without radio-friendly melodies. Some of the tracks have also appeared on the studio-album "Thrak", but "Vroom" is far preferable, because it provides a rougher and more original sound.
