Mastering The Craft
Martin A Hogan | San Francisco, CA. (Hercules) | 10/16/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Fripp has finally outdone himself (and friend Brian Eno) with this collection of ethereal music. Where before the sounds of guitar were easily distinguished, here they are hidden in magical sound loops that remind one more of synthesized keyboards than a guitar. Recorded in lengthy oversampled sound layers, Fripp presents a sound totally new and unique. It is difficult to describe other than it has layers and depth in it's presentation. It's almost beyond spiritual and never sounds mechanical. This album can be used as relaxing background music or as an incredible meditation source on headphones. It is ambient sound matured."
Altered conciousness

"True Story: I went to bed and put this CD on. The next day my roommate told me he had been standing in the kitchen and felt completely disoriented from this sound in his 'head'. It wasn't until he passed by my room that he realized the music was from my stereo. He thought he was having an acid flashback. That's the best way I can describe this sound - it's wonderful and relaxing - like a soundtrack to a space movie. Love it!"
Alternating haunting and beautiful
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is Fripp's latest Soundscape release, though it contains pieces collected over the past few years. For the uninitiated, Soundscapes are Fripp's solo instrumentals of sampled and processed sounds layered through a series of digital delays. Though Fripp plays guitar, reconizable guitar sounds are rarely heard. Because Fripp has mastrered the technology, there is a refinement and subtleness that define the path of chaos to introspection Soundscapes often travel.The result is a liquid, flowing sonic Jackson Pollack, sometimes organic, sometimes mechanical, always honest, and frequently heartfeltSoundscapes are not initially "easy" listening, but they offer a range of dissonance to resolution that bears countless repeat listenings. It's is not music you listen to, but listen through and within."
