This 1999 release precedes the excellent new recording from perennial prog-rockers King Crimson, titled The ConstruKction of Light. Yet with The Repercussions of Angelic Behavior, electric guitarist and Crimson founder Robert Fripp, touch bassist Trey Gunn and hard hitting drummer Bill Rieflin mesh gears for some truly energetic interplay! Spearheaded by Fripp’s signature style attack consisting of loops, EFX, and sinuous lead soloing along with a keen (if not legendary) sense of the dynamic, the trio pursues booming, driving rhythms and abstract themes amid fiery improvisation and otherworldly effects. Throughout, touch bassist Trey Gunn displays the synergy and intuitiveness exhibited on recent collaborations with Fripp in King Crimson and elsewhere. - However, there are no track listings or credits while it is stated on the CD that – “random play is required for full effect”! And while Fripp and Gunn are well known for their improvising ways which has been documented on a rash of recent King Crimson offshoot recordings known as “Project X” or “Project I, 2 and so on, this release falls within a similar format. Hence, The Repercussions of Angelic Behavior is an engaging and electrifying presentation and while we won’t suggest that this recording is essential or a must have for Crimson fans, the overall experience is thoroughly satisfying.
