This review is from: Starless and Bible Black, 40th Anniversary Series (DVD Audio)
Recorded mainly live with some studio touch ups this is the King Crimson album which bridges between the prog of `Larks tongues in Aspic' and metal prog of `Red'. As with most king Crimson albums it's another album another line-up, this one featuring just David Cross, John Wetton, Bill Bruford and Robert Fripp. Highlights of the album are `The Great deceiver ` `Lament' with its Huge Cymbal sounds, and the closer `Fracture'. The album comes with a new stereo mix on the CD while the DVD comes packed with extras.
The original Multi tracks for 'Trio' and 'the Mincer' have gone missing, so for these two tracks an up-mix has been completed for the 5.1 and I have to say this is one of the best up-mixes I have ever heard and kudos to Robert Fripp for being so honest about this.
2 Stereo mixes original and 2011 in MLP (96/24 DVD audio players only) and PCM (48/24 DVD/Blu Ray Compatible)
New 5.1 Mix in DTS (DVD/Blu Ray Compatible) and MLP (DVD audio players only)
A host of bonus tracks mostly live in 48/24 PCM stereo (DVD/Blu Ray Compatible)
Two video tracks `Easy Money' and `Fragged Dusty Wall Carpet'
All in all another spectacular release from king Crimson roll on the rest of the catalogue.
