"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"!!!
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.
