"When music appears which only King Crimson can play then, sooner or later, King Crimson appears to play the music."-Robert Fripp
CD features a new stereo mix of the album by Jakko Jakszyk & Robert Fripp. DVD-a features a 5.1 Surround Sound & High-Resolution stereo mixes by Jakszyk & Fripp alongside a Hi-Res stereo of the original album mix.
The 1994 return of King Crimson was timed perfectly, matching, in no particular order, one of the peak periods for CD sales, a time of great variety of radio formats in the USA, the growth of a number of bands who pointed eagerly to the influence of King Crimson.
The newly mixed stereo of THRAK was described as “transformative” by Robert Fripp & it's no exaggeration to state that this band can't be fully appreciated and understood until you hear the roar of THRAK emerging from six speakers.
Twenty years on from its original release, THRAK remains one of the most powerful studio albums of the period."
