Shakespeare
3 stars Celestial to the extent of vapor, Fripp & Eno's second collaboration is a finely pious experience. Terribly difficult to characterize, this unearthly music abducts its audience, soundly carrying them to the world unseen. Ambient music is a difficult thing to grasp for many. The connection between listener and player is very delicate, and requires lots of patience, but when taken advantage of, we can really delve into this vein of music. Though this certainly is not an ideal starting point for ambient music, those who already enjoy this type of music will fall in love with the simple beauties of the title track, and all the atmospheric techniques these two geniuses use on all of side one. Unfortunately, excessive droning in the massive 28 minute An Index of Metals will likely be perceived unneeded by many, but for fans of minimalism, meditative, and lush music, like myself, it is beautiful. Evening Star always transport me off earth, but those who aren't huge fans of minimalism will ask, "Can I go back now?"
Shakespeare | 3/5 |
