2 stars Take the last 9 or so minutes of Moonchild from KING CRIMSON's In The Court Of The Crimson King and stretch it for 48 minutes and this is what you come up with. Sorry to say that the only things you will feel while listening to this album are boredom and occasional drowsiness. The album starts off slow enough with its opening four songs leading up to the epic final track An Index of Metals which is actually a very fitting title as it does sound like 28 minutes of someone very calmly and deliberately indexing a collection of metals with all the excitement of reading a periodic table. I truely hate to brutalize a work by Robert Fripp but I also don't see what anyone gets out of ambient music. The only people I can really recommend this album to are insomniacs. Maybe a much more patient listener will be able to sit back, relax, and get something meaningful out of this album but all I got was z's. At most this is a 1.75 effort but that rounds up to a very generous 2 Eno indused comas out of 5.
