2 stars Here I go with another lesser album from my record borrowing history. My little review won't be very accurate but for that purpose read all the preceeding ones. I can't say that I'm any Fripp-expert either, like a Crimso fan or something. But here's what I remember from this album I listened and partly taped long ago.

17 tracks, most of them shorter than the usual song legth, some under two minutes. I avoid the temptation to write the awfully long title of a 4-second track (Jesus! Supposed to be funny?). Most of the tracks are instrumentals and collaborations with numerous proggy musicians. Fripp's old album partner Eno is of course present. The title track is the one from Peter Gabriel II (which was produced by Fripp). 'Here Comes the Flood' from PG I is heard here as a reduced piano+vocals version. Beautiful. Peter Hammill sings 'Chicago' in his unique powerful style.

Unfortunately the CD I borrowed didn't have credit texts, so I don't know the vocalists of the two songs I was very charmed by. 'North Star' is a cool and smooth song with vocals similar to Todd Rundgren's. 'Mary' is a folkish song sung by a woman. These simple songs are little jewels! But for the album as a (rather messy) whole I frankly didn't warm up to. Apparently for a Fripp enthusiast this is an album not to be missed. There seems to be also a 2-disc edition of it...
