King Crimson — B'Boom - Live in Argentina
(DGM DGM 9503, 1995, 2CD)
by Mike Grimes, Published 1996-08-01It's always a challenge to review an album that I'm sure everyone has, but here goes... Recorded just prior to their extensive worldwide tour, these recordings accurately reflect the 1995 version of King Crimson. If you aren't aware of what Crimson has been up to the last few years, have someone check your pulse. The set list is almost the same as the "First Leg" set of the American 95 tour. This double CD set also contains two tracks - "Heartbeat," and "Sleepless" that weren't played much, if at all, since these Argentine concerts. This album is a must for those who saw the band on tour last year and want an aural souvenir of the experience. The sound quality is great, and it's an entire concert long plus a few extra tracks for good measure. For me at least, it's also much easier to tell what's going on the CD during some of the hectic sections than it was trying to during the concert. King Crimson rarely disappoints, especially in a live setting - and this album is no exception. Fripp and Co. have done it again.
