It´s alright, but I´ve meant I cannot remember every beautiful solo appeared in truly terrible song. That´s "out of my recognition abilities". I´m sorry.

LOL.  That's okay.  I happen to like that song, though.....

I can't believe no one mentioned "Exiles"... "White Shadow" and "Evening Star" are also great!

Thats what me and a friend who are big fans have always had trouble with.  It's very hard to describe.  We're saying things to people like "well it's....ambient...but like theres guitar in it, but not the kind of guitar you'd think would....this is going nowhere!"

Astutely put. And that solo was truly beautiful!

To add a third, the one in 21st Century Schizoid Man is sublime.

It's not a solo if everyone is playing a composition is unison and without an individual being the highlight of the section/piece.

Meh, Robert Fripp never really is the highlight of a section or piece.

If that were the case, no one would've mentioned any tracks on this thread. Evidently, you're absolutely wrong.

That's nonsense. He never plays with any feel and his style is very repetitive and dull.
