Carsten Pieper With King Crimson among my all time favorites this is a great addition to my collection. The Stick Men trio (Crimsos Levin and Mastelotto and Touch guitar slinger Markus Reuter) is joined by ex-Crimson violinist David Cross for a handful of concerts in Japan. Very crimsoid, indeed: Soundscapes, KC covers and adaptations (as the overwhelmingly beautiful
Shades Of Starless) and Stick Men's original material that fits in well. Favorite track: Shades Of Starless (2nd set).

Josh Donald Stick Men. King Crimson alums. What more can you say? This release is suburb with David Cross doing a rare appearance.

How Tony, Markus and Pat can make three people sound like six is insane. Long live this style of music!!! Favorite track: The Talking Drum (2nd set).

distant planet This is essential for fans of King Crimson or prog rock.
I've never been a fan of stick instruments until hearing this set. At times the stickists sound like Allan Holdsworth or like almighty Fripp himself and of course their sound is often unique too.
The ambience is further enhanced here with the guest presence of David Cross and his violin.
Everything adds up to an album that matches the power, menace and experimentalism of Larks Tongues in Aspic. It's been emotional guys !! Rock on !! Favorite track: Hide The Trees (1st set).

Dr. Bernie Quiroga, PhD Markus, Pat and Tony have refreshed the face of prog ever since the Stick Men project was born eight years ago. Always interesting, always pushing boundaries, now they show us that sometimes we need to step back to move forward. Enter the always tasteful violinist from King Crimson, Mr. David Cross, and we have a cross-generational Crimcentric Powerhouse! Carefully composed improvisations, tasteful reinterpretations, genre-defying playing. A winner, and a must have! Favorite track: Industry (1st set).
