4 stars This album, much like several other Fripp albums that came out in the mid-90's, is not even remotely "progressive", nor is it "rock". In fact, there is very little here that even sounds like a guitar, due to the extreme processing. I've seen it lumped in with New Age artists in record stores and in print reviews, but it rarely sounds like that style of music. I would describe it as perhaps "Electroacoustic", "Acousmatic", or "Experimental Electronic". I have several of these releases, and though they are ostensibly "live recordings", you will hear no sign of an audience. It's difficult to say how much of the aforementioned processing was done after the fact. Anyway, I find some of the tracks tension-inducing, and others transcendent (the other releases are similarly hit-and-miss). I happen to love the three styles listed above just as much as I love progressive rock. If you feel the same way, check this out. I can also recommend "1999..." and "Radiophonics...".
