3 stars Evening Star take the same idea of the debut collaboration between Robert Fripp and Brian Eno, but ultimately comes off as a bit boring, in my opinion. The soundscapes on this album are roughly the same, if not a little more on the ambient side of things, and Fripp's wonderful guitar only makes a difference in sound on the last (and best) track of the album, "An Index of Metals", which is nearly 30 minutes of droning buzzscape with very alien and experimental sounding electrically manipulated guitar phrasing that adds a certain enigmatic texture to the track. Unfortunately, the rest of the tracks are nothing more than soothing ambient drones that sound full, but are not particularly interesting.

Though this isn't as experimental or overall interesting as No Pussyfooting, this album is still a beautiful listen. But, if you liked Music for Airports, then this will most likely be very enjoyable.
