3 stars This album proved to be the more interesting of the two Fripp and Eno 1970s releases. While this one shows some of the ambient music tendencies both musicians were heading toward, Fripp saves the recording with some nice, but not spectacular guitar playing on both of the pieces.

The two tracks both have Eno playing sounds through the dual tape recorder delay process that Fripp later appropriated and dubbed "Frippertronics". Frips adds guitar solos, with lots of long sustained notes, keeping the whole affair from becoming a dreadful bore. This album is only essential if you are a collector of Fripp's guitar solos.

The cover is almost the best part of the album, depicting Fripp & Eno lounging in a mirrored room. Eno is playing with a naughty deck of cards. And is that an illicit substance in powdered lines on that picture frame in front of Fripp? He always seemed like too much of a control freak for that kind of foolishness.

Low three stars.
