Exposure is a really meh album. Breathless is a good song. The singing on it is so hammy and annoying. It's why I don't really dig the Sylvian stuff either. Odd enough I think Crimson does best with rough around the edges singers. Gives the band it's grit

I do tend to agree - exposure not really my cup o tea, ditto to league of gentlemen which you have to imagine will get covered in this box. I think it’s more a box for them to work on now that all KC boxes are done until the current band (ie fripp) chooses to hang it up and retire.

I say that because we know at min they play to release all shows of current band 2014-present digitall. have to imagine there will be a corresponding box set with Video footage as well - we know they filmed all shows from 2015-present, with 2015 using the cheaper radical action cameras and the more recent at least since 2017 using a full HD camera setup to film. So have to imagine that’ll see light of day!

So yeaaahhh have to assume exposure box is a 2021 thing that doesn’t interest me much, but am hoping that Toby wraps up the documentary for 2020 release!

i dont see any place for the 90s stuff in this box if its gonna be exposure centric. those soundscapes have so much less bite with the midi system, it'd sound really awkward next to the feedback loop stuff.

 

and yeah i agree on it being a meh album. its really weird that he had 4 years to cook it up and really put a lot of thought into it (road to 81 shit) but still managed to have it fall flat like that. there's some great highs: preface, water music, ny3 and breathless; but those lows are pretty low like the roche screaming on the title track and burn me up. the trio rehearsal stuff though is next level, they've already put out a shit load already but i hope that we get some new or cleaner stuff

what was the point of putting audience recording of dr diamond on 2020 boxset if there are plenty of multitrack soundboards?

I'm actually ok with League.  It's a weird transitional band that is pretty forgettable, but it had a curious new wave vibe.  

 

When did they announce this box?

Pretty sure this is new.  Crimson performing for some music show on the '84 tour.  Sleepless is a banger on this one.
