    JAKSZYK, FRIPP & COLLINS With LEVIN & HARRISON A Scarcity Of Miracles (2014 Japanese Limited Edition 6-track K2HD Mastering CD & Bonus Surround Sound Audio DVD with bonus film - With King Crimson on hold since their live reunion of 2008, thisinstalment of the ProjeKct series [in which members break down into smaller research and development units] has caused surprise in some circles by proving to be an album of finely crafted, mid-paced songs rather than the fast-moving, genre-blurring instrumentals that characterised previous outings. The sombre mood hanging over the album is matched by a terse sense of restraint which only breaks cover for the explosive paranoia of 'The Other Man' and the discursive atonalities of 'The Light of Day' which closes the album. An especially bleak Fripp / Jakszyk improvisation is disconsolately adorned by multi-tracked voices and gouging scrawls of acidic sax. It's dark and powerful stuff.

The vinyl remains in superb EXcondition with only a couple of light surface scuffs to indicate light use, remaining seldom played. A nice copy of an essential Crim classic - recommended! ILPS9275)
