4 stars This album presents the first frippertonic experiments that Robert Fripp did with Brian Eno. Brian had created an analog tape loop device which he used on his "Discreet Music" album (a very recommendable record), and Robert started using it with his Gibson Les Paul, realizing the potential for more complex solo performances. It is truly an amazing wall of sound which he is capable to conjure with this system. This ambient music is beautiful, but not very new age stylish, focusing more on concentrated tectonics of organic sound plates. These tapes were used on King Crimson concert openers during the years 1973 and 1974, thus the beginning of this album can be heard on their live recordings from that period. If you are interested of that band's history or like minimal but powerful meditative musical ambiences, this is a good bargain for those preferences. The following "Evening Star" developed this process further in 1975 after the disbanding of King Crimson.
