5 stars Well this is indeed my first review, and I wanted to start with my favorite album of one of my favorite prog bands. This is quite a well written album! There is no possible way to go wrong with Robert Fripp on guitar and Bill Bruford on drums. So yeah, the album is extremely depressing. In Fallen Angel lyrics like "risk a life to make a dime" are sung beautifully but make you feel rather remorseful. Starless starts with a slow guitar solo by Fripp and once again the lyrics are depressing. The melancholy feeling you get is okay though because with most other prog bands you will get this feeling anyway. I mean this isn't Moon Safari or Willoglass. All in all the album is absolutely amazing! Great use of the mellotron, guitar, and percussion. The saxophone is also well played at the end of Starless! I would be surprised if you haven't heard such an album, but if you have not heard this album, I completely recommend it!
