Review by Gary Hill

This new set from The Security Project continues their cycle of re-envisioning Peter Gabriel songs, but brings new flavors and concepts to that idea, while also stretching it out a bit.

Live 1
Review by Gary Hill
What a cool set this is, really. The music here is all Peter Gabriel music, but one song from his time in Genesis.

Robert Fripp - Exposure
Review by Steve Alspach
Robert Fripp's first solo album (not counting the side projects with Brian Eno) was considered "A Day in the Life" for the 1970s. Fripp proves himself to be the "21st Century Schizoid Man" because this album runs the gamut from harsh metal to more ambient dreamscapes.

King Crimson - Eyes Wide Open DVD
Review by Bill Knispel
Following two plus years as a “double trio,” and nearly two years of fractionalization through a series of ProjeKCts, King Crimson returned to active duty in 2000 as a streamlined quartet with the album The ConstruKCtion of Light. A second album in this newer “double duo” format titled The Power to Believe, followed in 2003.

King Crimson - Level Five
Review by Bill Knispel
Following the “research and development” phase that was the ProjeKCts, King Crimson resumed its most recent return to recording and performance. Having jettisoned Bill Bruford (who returned to primarily jazz playing via Earthworks) and Tony Levin (who returned to live work with long time collaborator Peter Gabriel), Crimson recorded and released the more electronic album The ConstruKCtion of Light in 2000.

Quodia - The Arrow – a story in seven parts
Review by Gary Hill
You have to figure any project that involves Trey Gunn will be artistic. This is the quintessential example of that. In fact, this is such a cool concept that it would be worth having even if the music were lousy – and, of course, it isn’t. This album comes as a 2 disc set.

Review by Gary Hill
Since its formation in the late 1960's King Crimson has never been content to stay in one musical place. They were one of the pioneers of progressive rock, and under the guidance of band leader Robert Fripp they have gone through many changes, both in terms of musical style and lineup. I
