5 stars It takes guts, will and lots of vision!

Robert Fripp became the instant deconsacrated target of his self created "King Crimson Frankensteins". They neglect the fact of abandonment. They just hate him.

So, do not feel surprised by this PA's "extreme" underratings. Feel instead invited to a very different way of music expression, unorthodox to the point of uncomparable, "Cosmic Progressive Electronics".

Achieved solely by the multiple layering of "live" and pre-recorded electric guitar loops, his always photogenic Gibson Les Paul, + his personalised Dual Tape recording system. Add to this technique his restless musician's creativity to go beyond his past comfort zone's achievements and be born again to this new "electronic" world which outcome is also known as FRIPPERTRONICS, nor close or far related, as you may have guessed, from his King Crimson's musical language. Pure and uncomparable (meaning UNIQUE!, never before done, therefore truly PROGRESSIVE) electronic guitar poetry, forget the past and.....


*****5 "Full to the Top" PA stars.
