5 stars Gorgeous, swirling, noodly, abstract, odorous, and oh so flawless, The Equatorial Stars is a fantastic example of the sheer beauty that can arise from properly executed ambient music. Matching the album name, this music sounds like it comes from the depths of space, but not in a a "blacker-than-black" manner like early TD; for the most part, The Equatorial Stars is an easy and pleasant listen. Each of the tunes has a definite sort of mood to it, ranging from relatively cheerful to dark and noisy. Fripp and Eno definitely have a sort of chemistry, and I find that it comes out more effectively through this album than it does through some of their other collaborations, although all are unique enough to be worth checking out.

One of my favourite albums of all time.
