The King is dead, long live the King. Dissolved into various ProjeKcts, King Crimson face a truly rosy future. Without Robert Fripp, who gave his unconditional OK to this undertaking, The Crimson ProjeKct appears as a double trio, the very Crimson constellation that had already unsettled the nineties. With guitarist Adrian Belew, bassist Tony Levin and drummer Pat Mastelotto there are three original members who are supported by Markus Reuter (touch guitar), Julie Slick (bass) and Tobias Ralph (drums). Or in other words: with Stickmen (Levin, Mastelotto, Reuter) and The Adrian Belew Power Trio (Belew, Slick, Ralph), two triumvirates acting in the spirit of King Crimson enter into a fruitful symbiosis. Of course, they dedicate themselves unreservedly to the KC legacy, especially that of the eighties and nineties. "Live In Tokyo" gives an impression of the massive ecstasy of the sextet, which rises to full size with "Indiscipline" and "Industry", but also delivers classics like "Red" and "Larks' Tongues In Aspic, Part II".
