Petra Haden Does King Crimson

Petra Haden's King Crimson Madrigal

“Red” is one of the most powerful, epic and devastating tracks that King Crimson has ever recorded and that’s saying a lot. It is brutal in its force while being ecstatic in its relelentless drive. Well, singer Petra Haden has a different take on this epic that takes heavy metal progressive rock and turns it into a madrigal. Multi-tracking her voice she creates the layers, counterpoints and rhythmic shifts of this work. It’s a blast. She’s also covered all of The Who Sell Out.
