Prog Reviewer
4 stars A more diverse and mature album than No Pussyfooting, at least partially because both Fripp and Eno had had a chance to have a think about what this whole "ambient" thing they've cooked up is and what they might do with it, Evening Star consists of a side of shorter tracks based on a variety of approaches (and featuring some absolutely gorgeous guitar solos from Fripp) and a side-long epic in the form of An Index of Metals, which is a Frippertronic piece which essentially restates the premises of No Pussyfooting but does so in a more engaging and interesting fashion. In this particular case, experience really does show - No Pussyfooting might have shown promise, but it was Evening Star that fulfilled it.
