2 stars If you are a King Crimson fan - die hard one - this is an excellent box set. But if you are not but you appreciate the kind of jamming music or improvisations you might also like this set. But if you expect something like song-orientated music, this is definitely not for you. It's a bit hard for most people to accept this kind of live set which comprises mainly free flow music and practically no song is presented. However, if in the live set of King Crimson like "Heavy ConstruKction" you appreciate tracks like "Improv: Munchen" you might enjoy the music presented here. For me personally I purchased this box set merely I was so impressed with the cover artwork. Indeed, inside each CD sleeves there are dozens of wonderful artwork with similar style and nuance. I love this box set very much - it's artistically incredible! As for the music itself I enjoy this set because it helps me understands the subtleties of each musicians styles and sounds. Right after enjoying this set usually I spin other KC albums to get it compared on song orientated set. As far as giving opinion, I have to be fair with general people which might possibly consider this album is a nonsense - nothing in it. But frankly, this is not bad at all. To make it the best opinion I would give this box set worth for completionist - two stars rating. Keep on proggin' ..!

5 stars In the 90's, King Crimson was finally able to share in recorded form the transcendent improvisation that characterized the 73-74 lineup. The release of "The Great Deciever" boxset made the studio albums pale in comparison. Something had been happening with this band that went beyond ordinary ro ... (read more)

5 stars I don't really know what to call this. It's not really prog, it's not jazz, it's not fusion. It's sui generis. It's improvised music made with electrified instruments by some of the most talented and creative musicians alive. A lot of it is dark and nasty and ominous in that Crimson-manner, almo ...

5 stars This 4 cd - Box Set is really something so much more than beatiful. The incredible techical skills of the four sub- crim formations is terrific, the simply way to describe these cds in which the KC music re- invent itself again and again and again, is Masterpiece. At the first time you listen t ... (read more)

2 stars Very strange live improvs from various line-ups of King Crimson members. A mix of enjoyable and boring instrumentals... CD I is ProjeKct One - "Live At The Jazz Cafe". Mostly jazzy improvs, highlights being the slower "1ii2" and "2ii3". CD II is ProjeKct Two - "Live Groove". A mix of the space ... (read more)

2 stars I rate it two stars because you must be crazy to love this music. So if you are, go, grab the CDs and listen to them. Encore. And Encore. These 6 musicians play with KC since many years and in THRAK, they played all togheter for the first time, we called it the Double Trio (two guitars, two dru ... (read more)

5 stars improvised music. a superb mix of jazz, metal, ambient, space rock. It requires some time to fully enjoy it but it will reward you with 4cd of greath music. Caution: it is nothing like previous or next albums by KC ... (read more)

3 stars One of the best releases by KC in any arangement during the last decade, The ProjeKcts is a 4 disc set with variations on the KC lineup on each one, each being a winner, really interesting throughout, excellent playing and the various musicians seem to be really enjoying the freedom presented to the ...

4 stars I posted four instead of five stars only because the first two projekcts are less compelling to me than 3 and 4. The latter two are phenomenal. Perhaps its Pat's percussion? Along with Projekct X, they represent a high point in passion and ingenuity. Someone pointed out to me the Kc represents King ... (read more)
