4 stars Listening to this album was quite and interesting experience for me. I have just gotten into Brian Eno and other electronic and ambient music. I will have to say that this album floored me from the very beginning. It is quite varied with the solos that Fripp constructs and the highly textured soundscapes that surround them. I got the bonus disc edition, which contains the tracks played in reversed or at half-speed and such, and it's actually not gimmicky at all. The pieces change just enough to offer a new insight on the originals and stand alone as their own entities. Swastika Girls is absolutely hypnotizing. I get lost trying to pick out every sound that's playing; it's so layered it's ridiculous. This is one of the most different and interesting albums I've ever listened to. The only reason I am giving this a four instead of a five is only because I can see the influence this has had on music and what other people did after listening to this album. Having listened to the music that followed this stuff, it makes it sound a little bare, like you know there are only two guys working on this stuff. Still, I highly recommend this album to anyone; I thoroughly enjoyed listening to it.
