3 stars Now here is an incredible album which has been on my top play list ever since I first heard it featured over the loud speaker system at a Robert Fripp/David Sylvian show at Massey Hall here in Toronto. I remember commenting to my friend on how much I was enjoying the warm up music just fed over the PA. Immediately after the show I picked up the CD not knowing very much about the release except for the great introduction I had the night before. As it turns out it is another side project from Robert Fripp this time teaming up with electronica wizards D.A.R. Peterson, Kris Weston and Thomas Fehlmann. Fripp as you would expect handles all of the Frippertronics, guitars and treatments. This album was mixed and produced by The Orb. For those who like it spacey I would highly recommend this CD to you as it is just incredible. FFWD>> is exceptionally well recorded and offers incredible speaker seperation...This CD sounds incredible on the 'ol headphones. I would categorize this release somewhere in the zone of "No Pussyfooting", but carries a more psychedelic landscape to it. Also some spoken words and lots of wild sound effects making the listener wonder what these folks were doing at the time of recording. Highly recommended for the space heads out here.
