From a fly on the wall May 10, 2007
Written by DavidCooke
This is a very welcome introduction to the LCG, as if the group were sharing their music-making as frankly as possible with us craftless listeners.
Each of the three takes of House Symmetrical has its own identity. Subjectively, I found that the second take has the greatest impact; the musicians had the groove and were attacking it with redoubled commitment. The third sounds slightly more relaxed.
The C major circulation comes as a relief after that worrying symmetrical scale. Are circulations always as serene as this? From a listenerís viewpoint, they seem to have the virtue of freedom from self-expression. The music can speak for itself as the íplayerí is the whole group rather than any individual.
Iíd wish the LCG5 spectacular success, if it wasnít for that contract... as Groucho Marx said in A Night at the Opera, "As long he doesnít sing too often, he can just break even".

Of the two December 2005 releases (at the time of this writing) this is my favoite. In particular, the final track, "At the End of Time", is very moving, capturing all the beauty of the best moments of a Soundscape live Read more

Having read the reviews of the nightís performance makes this soundscape even more incredible (happily, the noisy crowd members are not heard). This performance strikes me as being different than other recent soundscapes that Iíve heard, although it is difficult Read more

Well it was well worth waiting for. As a huge Robert Fripp and Porcupine Tree fan I was lucky enough to see Soundscapes 3 times (Boston and 2 Chicago shows) and was thrilled when a friend called and mentioned the Read more

First off, the sound quality is very strong (on the FLAC download at least). Frippís music has never been heard with more clarity. As to the content, I quite like Read more

Sunday December 11 2006. Cambridge Junction. Iíve never been to one of Robert Frippís solo gigs before but having seen his Soundscapes on DVD I assumed that the audience during Frippís set would consist of Read more

I only spotted this download because RF mentioned 3 soundscape downloads in his diary.
The shear breath taking beauty drew me away from my own thoughts a number of times. There are one or two places where the synth patch Read more

Iíve been listening Frippís solo projects and I found a new horizon in music, soundscapes are a mind-travelling experience through places youíve never been and you always longed to be. Everytime I listen to these records and I close my eyes Read more

I was at this performance, as I was living in Brooklyn at the time. I had been to several soundscapes before this one, but this had a resonance that was unique to them Read more
