David Cross Band - Sign Of The Crow album review
The ex-King Crimson violinist’s most powerful band album to date.
David Cross has been particularly busy of late, making collaborative albums with the Stick Men, Robert Fripp, Sean Quinn, and now the first studio album by his six-piece band since Closer Than Skin in 2005. They are a graceful, powerful unit. Starfall shows off their signature style with its tricky, knuckle-busting riffs, with beats dropped hither and thither, before they all pull together to back Jinian Wilde’s warm, soaring vocal melodies. Cross’s violin solo is so flamboyant and intense, one can imagine him sprouting horns.
