Review by Evolver
SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Crossover & JazzRock/Fusion Teams
4 stars This is a very nice album from Robert Fripp & The League of Crafty Guitarists, a collection of students from Fripp's guitar craft course, where he took guitar players of all different levels, and molded them in his image. In this case, that's not such a bad thing.

The album is a set of mostly short, lush acoustic guitar pieces, all in a similar style to what Fripp had been playing in the eighties and early nineties: complex pieces, based on individual guitars playing somewhat repetitive lines in different timesignatues, so that different sections of each instrument's part comes together at different times, creating almost hypnotic patterns. And this recording is a beautiful example of that effect.

And no one played Frippertronics!

4 stars A real blast! This music is very amazing for it's lively diversity. I only wish Fripp would make these sessions more frequent. Each piece is a lively and continually unfolding experience. Composed primarily of acoustic guitarists spinning their own spiraling musical lines. A Connecticut Yankee ... (read more)
