What does it sound like?:
A sequel and companion piece to last years 2014 Elements release, this 2015 set comprises two cds plus an informative and illuminating illustrated booklet.
Every line up of the band is represented over the period 1969-2015 in this collection of new material, alternate takes, tour rehearsals and live recordings, many of which are making their first appearance on CD. There are also previews from forthcoming releases such as the USA II album.
Laid out in roughly chronological fashion, it provides a comprehensive alternate overview of the band’s career to date. At 140 minutes long, this is first class listening – a heady mixture of the familiar and the unexpected, all presented in stunning sonic clarity.
No period is left unexplored, with several pieces appearing from the ProjeKts ‘research and development’ period, as well as from the 80’s era that was sadly not much touched on in the band’s recent shows.
