CD Reviews

Redundant single
Miguel Farah Fugate | Santiago, Chile | 09/12/2000
(3 out of 5 stars)

"This is a single of Robert Fripp's Soundscapes. Tracks 1, 3 and 4 are from his album _The Gates of Paradise_, while track 2 is from _A Blessing of Tears_.If you already have both those albums, this item is redundant and you don't need it. If you don't... sadly, this isn't a great overview of Fripp's soundscape work, so you won't get a good image of what that is - it's better to buy a full album (_That Which Passes_, IMHO, is the best of the bunch)."
Space sampler

"3 1/2

Though it sides on the indulgently underwhelming in its brevity, PJ's title track alone deserves storage as some of electric guitar-distilled ambiance's finest tonal articulations."
Let The Power Be Sampled
Mr. Richard D. Coreno | Berea, Ohio USA | 06/19/2008
(3 out of 5 stars)

"When restarting his solo career in earnest in 1994, Robert Fripp updated his Frippertronics technique with digital technology - instead of tapes - to create loops of sounds.

The Soundscapes projects included six CD releases of new material and this "single" collection from The Gates of Paradise and A Blessing of Tears. With three selections from the former and one from the latter, it is a bit puzzling, since there is no burning incentive for fans who already have the pair of CD's to delve into this one, unless they are seeking a complete catalog of Fripp solo releases.

For those intrigued by these oftentimes metallic-sounding, non-melodic works, it is a nice sampler before making an investment in a number of CD's. The landscape Fripp paints through sound is intriguing and - at times - quite powerful. This release is a decent directional map of his vision.
