3 stars Now, how's this for a lark: Bobby "Chuckles" Fripp decided to give you, the consumer, a whole lotta bang for your buck. Rather than selling two EPs, he lowered costs and presented "God Save The Queen" and "Under Heavy Manners" on a single album. Brilliant economy, but what about the music? On one side, you're solely assaulted by the tape loop explorations that characterize the fine art of ambient Frippertronics. Brian Eno would be proud! On the other side, "applied Frippertronics" are used to cushion both rollicking rock rhythms and the -isms of Absalm el Habib.

Consider this a conceptual prelude to 1984's Three of a Perfect Pair.
