3 stars The debut of Robert Fripp still has some recognizable aspects of King Crimson's Larques Tongues - Red period. Exposure is the bridge between this period and the later King Crimson. Many great guests were invited to work on this record like Peter Hammill and Peter Gabriel. Still this ain't no masterpiece, because the songs/ compositions don't have the great atmosphere of King Crimson and most of them are based on some small themes and don't have the song progression that we were used to.

The record contains Rock'n Roll, Crimson alike riffs, ballads and Frippertronics. And one thing is for sure: the songs have over the top vocals except the last song sung by Gabriel which is a gentle one. Peter Hammill and the woman vocalist Daryl Hall give themselves totally and reach a certain level of craziness.

This is a quiet divers record with some nice songs, and I quess Fripp and his fellow musicians had some joy during the recordings. This record is enjoyable and a nice addition for King Crimson or Peter Hammill fans. Prepare for the more crazy side of Fripp! Three stars.
