Review by ghost_of_morphy
3 stars I got this album last night. I went to sleep listening to it and found it to be soothing and relaxing.

That probably says something really negative about me. For the record, the last album that I found to be so soothing as I went to sleep was Robert Wyatt's Shleep. Again, that proably says something really negative about me.

The capsule description of this is that it is Fripp soundscapes combined with the menacing energy of some of his most daunting King Crimson work (Some of the Lark's Tounge in Aspic tracks, esp 1 come to mind, as does THRAKATTACK.) Some people love the soundscape stuff, some dismiss it as noodling. I happen to like it. Another review has compared this to some of the ProjeCKts releases, which would be an apt comparison as well.

Anyhow, what we have here is classic Fripp noodling (love it or hate it) combined with some great bass and stick work by Gunn and by some overly energetic percussion by Rieflin (whoever he is.) Gunn is really a co-creator here. The music would be short changed without him, and he really seems to be in sync with Fripp's vision of what they want to create. As for Rieflin, well, overly energetic describes his contributions well. Atmospherically, there is a darkness that overshadows the entire work. Some reviewers believe that they are hearing jazz influences. Those jazz influences, such as they are, have been long strained through prog, and specifically through earlier King Crimson and Fripp efforts.

I will give this three stars. It's good. But if you don't like Fripp's soundscapes, don't appreciate the ProjeCKts and don't want to hear Fripp release the monster in the music, you might be better served looking elsewhere for your prog fix.

4 stars If planning and execution are the intellectual side of refined, tasteful, simply fine music then improvisation is the life blood, or visceral method of breaking new ground and reaching into the unknown. Jazz and blues rely on it for inspiration. "The Repercussions of Angelic Behavior" (TROAB) is ... (read more)

5 stars Crazy man, crazy... If you liked the KCrimson Projects, especially 1 and 4 you'll love this collection of freely improvised ambient metallic and electric skronk/jazz/rock. One moment they're chewing into your brain like robotic earwigs on a mission, the next blissfully floating away on clouds of ... (read more)
