5 stars 4.5: the first really solo album by John Paul Jones, the legendary bassist/keyboardist and the most progressive influence of Led zeppelin music. The music in this one is really heavy prog combined with ambient music, it has a lot of influences of King Crimson, as one of their members Trey Gunn participated, and also it was issued by Fripp's own record, so a lot influence is being to be found here. I considered a really good album, it began with two really heavy songs and then a acoustic mainly song that has a nice passages, like the ones present in the albums of led zeppelin. I am impressed by the quality music and I think a lot of people will enjoy it, it is a really progressive album that is changing constantly the rhythm and has hypnotic riffs. It also turns into jazziest and funky at times, so make the music so diverse and avoid to make it bored, although it has not have lyrics. Excellent addition to any prog collection.
