2 stars Robert has a fun in making some guitar and piano ambient sounds, some harsh noises, strange, weird material, in here.

First piece has some harm and rough, higly pitched, high frequency guitar noises, similar to noises of high notes of organ. This is hardly listenable. He describes a fear that imaginative person feels before an entrance of Gates of Paradise. Atmosphere is bizzare and you do not want to stay there for too long. This sounds like some acid LSD trip, but I doubt that Fripp ever used these.

Second one: Much better, more calmed, nice, strings-like guitar sounds...somehow refreshing, but not to listen much: these sounds could damage your ears: probably more high than any string intruments can go.

Third one: Combination of first and second, continues on second one, it is totally static, the stoped sound, much confusing.

Fourth: The most pleasant one. Fripp uses some keyboards here. Cute ambient piece, shines more than the rest of album, worth of second, or maybe third listen.

Good, strange listening, but not for wider audience. You really need to be fan of esoteric music to apreciate this. So, this is for heavy Fripp's fans only, I think.
