2 stars Two Stars only!! Yes, this album is historical, inventive, progressive, but not very good. It comprises of two long pieces, each consisting of very little material stretched out through tape playbacks and rather weak soloing. Utilizing Fripp's trademark Frippertronics, (the repitition of sounds through tapes manipulations and delay), this piece goes on and on, and nothing happens. Occasionally, Eno will add his VCS 3 synths to bulk up the music, but this is also lacking. This music is the definition of sparse. You will listen to this album, and forty minutes later, wonder "what the hell? Wheres the music!". Despite its historical significance, I can't give this album anything higher than 2 stars. Both Eno and Fripp have produced bigger and better things than this. If you want spacy repeptive music, listen to Tangerine Dream. Though also dull, compared to this its rocking. I can't help but thinking the highly intelligent Fripp & Eno perpetrated this on this public as an inside joke.
