Album Review: "Too Much Happiness–A Romantic Guide to King Crimson" by The Mastelottos (8/10)

7 D Media/UMG

Producers: Pat and Deborah Mastelotto

What began as humorous observations made by King Crimson drummer Pat Mastelotto’s wife Deborah, about the dearth of women at KC concerts, inspired this release. Pat plays all the drums and Deborah sings lead on early Crimson songs like “Moonchild” and “Book of Saturday” as well as ‘80s era “Heartbeat” and “Sleepless” for the “pinkest” Crimson ever, her voice giving things an ethereal and dreamy feel. And they are joined by fellow Texans and global compadres that provide a unique classical and jazzy perspective.
