the philosopher
1 stars Let the Power Fall seems to be based on the novel 1984 of by George Orwell; a story about facism and power. The songs are titled 1984, 1985, etc... Robert Fripp shows his skills on the so-named Frippertronics. While these tunes are made by a guitar with taperecorders they sound synthesizer-like, creating a soundscape which could be used for meditation of for getting ready to bed.

If you like the sound of frippertronics or not, this record is totally out of proportion. There are no other sounds than frippertronics to be heard -there are even no other instruments to be heard- and because this is not the only record they appear on (frippertronics were already on Exposure) I thought about this record as a useles addition to my collection.

I'm a big fan of many works on wich Robert Fripp co-operated, especially the early King Crimson period, but this work does have so litle to offer that I'll give it just one star.
