Happy Accident

It was at a local market a few weeks ago that I found this King Crimson album( I still consider cd’s albums) Thrak. I use to listen to them so I bought it (can’t go wrong for 1$). This album was recorded in 1995 after a ten year gap from their previous release. Like other timeless recordings, even though it is now 13 years old its vital energy remains. Not only does it have the basic strange Crimson sound it also has some material that is less extreme. There is a hauntingly beautiful ballad Walking on Air and a kind of fusion tune People. Still, this is the great powerful mystic Crinsom sound. The next time I buy one of their albums it wont be a happy accident!
