CD Reviews

Profoundly beautiful
M. Bergeron | Colchester, VT United States | 03/28/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is a work of sheer beauty. The title track is magnificant pastoral of a simple piano progression and Fripp's soaring guitar and is worth the price of admission. The 'second side' is the abstract 'Index of Metals' 20-odd minutes of layered guitar and synth loops under some of the most beautiful axe-work Mr. Fripp has unleashed. The soon-to-be-dubbed "Frippertronics" technique is shown here in all of it's glory, tape saturation and decay...missing in the digital technique adds texture and timbre. No, this is NOT for everybody, but try a could become one of your favorite albums (as it is mine)"
"Aural Wallpaper"

""Wind on Water/Evening Star" is one of the coolest pieces either of these musicians have ever collaborated on. On the first track it sounds like Eno looped Fripp's sparse pentatonic melodies and trills dozens of times, processing each in a different way to create an edifice that beckons the listener in...Then the clusters of sound are stripped away, revealing further "rooms" within (just like the title--"Wind on Water" is the English translation of Feng Shui, the ancient Chinese art of design). It and the following title piece are alone worth the price of this CD..."Wind on Wind" is an excerpt from "Discreet Music," Eno's 1974 ambient release. "An Index of Metals" begins with a dissonant, dial-tone like chord which gradually changes into a monstrous proto-industrial soundscape."

"While all Eno collaborations are amazing and have added and enriched the lives of all who made it and listen to it, for me, Eno's lps with Robert Fripp, and those with Cluster, are the most amazing that he made."Evening Star," Eno's 2nd and final (alas) lp made with Fripp, foreshadow Eno's ambient works to come, as it appears that Fripp was second fiddle on these reocrdings, adding his sinewy guitar as needed, and doing little else. Age and wisdom, of course, tell us that Fripp was much more involved than that, despite his sparse playing of his guitar.Whatever the case, "An Index of Metals" is quite possibly the most astounding piece of music in all of Eno's amazingly desperse canon, foreshadowing not only his pure ambient pieces, but the forthcoming industrial movement, as well, with his tape loops and prepared use of Fripp's guitar. An astounding number, to be sure- bleak, sparse, yet emotional and full of life.This lp has it all for fans of early textured ambient works, and is a must own."
