King Crimson - Eyes Wide Open 2 x DVDs

This has two shows: Live in Japan, April 16, 2003 and Live in London July 3, 2000.

"King Crimson is and will always be a live band first and foremost. I first saw them over 30 years ago and have been amazed each and every time I have seen them play. The power in Robert Fripp & Co.'s music is when they play live. Their studio albums are great; however, seeing them live and watching them practice their art is what really draws you into their music. Once you see them perform live, you will forever remember in your mind the nuances you saw while they played each tune. This DVD is as close as you can get to a live Crim concert without being there. The video is a little grainy; however, there is usually smoke in the air at their concerts, so what you see is quite acceptable. The sound is OK in stereo; however, turn on the Digital 5.1 and prepare to be blown away! If you like recent Crim, these two shows will also provide you with a historical growth from 2000 to 2003 with the current four members of the band. If you are a fan of the '73/'74 power Crim (Fripp, Wetton, Bruford, et al)you will also find much to enjoy, especially in the 2003 Japan concert. If you are new to the band, this is a great place to see the modern performances of a band that helped define power rock and metal music. Robert Fripp is a musical genious and, if you watch closely, you will see that genious unfold again and again. This is, in my humble opinion, one of the strongest Crim lineups in the history of the band. Bruford may have been the best drummer they ever had and Tony Levin may have been the ultimate bass player; however, as a group, the four now together create a marvelous, well-oiled machine that shouldn't be missed. This is an essential Crim fan DVD and a good way for the newbie fan to get a taste of a classic, yet new and evolving, musical entity known as King Crimson."-Robert K. Sischka
