Review: A pioneer and a master of ambient music, guitarist Fripp paints lengthy languid ethereal soundscapes using solo guitar, effects, & his own Frippertronics, allowing him to jam with himself, continuously improvising. All recorded in concert. Some tracks have the same titles, but were recorded at different times in different cities.
If You Like: Eno, Daniel Lanois, Robin Guthrie
