3 stars The Repercussions of Angelic Behavior, was made as a spinoff from the participation of Fripp and Gunn on Rieflins: Birth of a Giant. I posted a few notes on that album here :

Trey Gunn, well known for his work with King Crimson, Sylvian, John Poul Jones ect. As usualy he does a fantastic job with his Touch Warr Guitar, working it both as a Bass, and a Guitar Syntz.

Bill Rieflin, best known from his time as a percussionist in Ministry, one of the cornerstones in the Industrial Metal movement up trough the 90's, but also working as a drummer in the German Industrial band KMFDM, and as a Tour drummer in R.E.M. His drumming here is essential, not just backing the KC boys, but actualy playing with them. Knowing that a lot of this may well be improvised. Sometimes in a Jazz'y style, sometimes very experimental, allway very pressent.

Fripp combines his Soundscrape style, with his destinct leads.

All in all the album comes out as very relaxing, something that makes me just close my eyes and enjoy. but still with a lot more action than the soundscrape Albums. Sometimes it is even a bit aggressive like on "Heard, not seen". But in general it is soft and pleasent. And compared to ProjecKs, witch would be not that far away, seems to me its more soft Jazz/Rock inspired, where ProjeKts are generally more Experimental.

Even though i love this album a lot, and would like to give it 4 stars, in all honesty i dont think it will fit in ANY prog rock collection, so ill have to go with only 3.

But if you are into Fripp or Gunn, or just generaly into instrumental records like Frank Zappa, or Other kinds of instrumental Jazz/rock. You should think of it as a 4-4,5 star rating.
