An interesting impression May 23, 2009

I have this on the CD, and it popped up at a party. One of the women in attendance commented that some of it sounded like a piano going down an elevator shaft. This bizarre imagery made me laugh so hard that my drink shot out of my nose.
I Quite Like It October 31, 2008

Though apparently this is edited down, itís music allowed to ebb and flow at some length, which is the quality I enjoy most in Frippís Soundscapes (and Frippertronics) work. Nice. Had I been at the Bath train station, I would have enjoyed it and I do enjoy this.
Still One My All-Time Favorite 'Soundscape' albums. February 17, 2008
Written by LouieB
I originally bought Robert Frippís "November Suite" when it was first released in 1997. Out of all the Soundscape CDís that Fripp released during that time (1994-1998), this still ranks as my all-time favorite.
Edited down to 63 minutes from nearly three hours of music, the "November Suite" is a beautifully orchestrated work that never seems to grow boring or monotonous. The sounds that Fripp conjures out of his guitar and MIDI racks is nothing short of outstanding. It isnít difficult to picture a cold wintery day in the park or a quiet wintery drive through the countryside while listening to this music. This is definitely some great ísoundtrackí music for ones imagination.
Although I have no need to purchase this download because I already have the original CD, I still am very thankful that this recording is available once again. As mentioned above, "November Suite" is one of Robert Frippís very best Soundscapes from the í90s. If youíve never heard this before, click the "Buy" button without any hesitation. You wonít be disappointed.
A small postscript and suggestion: I heard years ago that Frippís "1999" soundscapes disc was going to be reissued as a double-CD with bonus material but it never happened. How about doing it here on DGMLive as a download? That would be awesome.
One of the Best December 7, 2007

This is one of the best soundscape performances available, IMO. It has a wide range of music. At times it is beautiful and other times terrifying. Be prepared for a wild and powerful ride. Iím not suprised that someone threw up.
