DAVID CROSS Closer Than Skin Noisy Records (2005)
David Cross was the volinist with King Crimson back in the 70ís and this
is his fifth solo outing. Another King Crimson old boy pops up in Richard
Palmer-James who composed the lyrics.
The violin parts are very good but oh dear the vocals are at best mediocre. They just arenít strong or distinctive
enough to rise above the music and frankly tend to drone on a bit at times.
You need a good, strong prog rock orientated vocalist on here like John
Maybe worth a go if you like King Crimson and for the violin playing
which is at times breathtaking.
