Still One My All-Time Favorite 'Soundscape' albums. February 17, 2008
Written by LouieB
I originally bought Robert Fripp’s "November Suite" when it was first released in 1997. Out of all the Soundscape CD’s 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 isn’t 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 ’soundtrack’ 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 Fripp’s very best Soundscapes from the ’90s. If you’ve never heard this before, click the "Buy" button without any hesitation. You won’t be disappointed.
A small postscript and suggestion: I heard years ago that Fripp’s "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.

I felt almost sneaky listening to this, as it was obviously "not ready for prime time"; sounds as if TG was learning the timing. Still, great to hear and left me wanting a bit more, as the old showbiz adage Read more

I wish DGM would dump the silly star system -- how do you "rate" music like this? How many stars do you have? Give Radiophonics a thousand. This music is the dark to the WFC’s (11/30/2000) Read more

OK, SoundScapes are beautiful and deep, mysterious and melancholy, atmospheric and soul-stirring and all that. But this concert shows they can be buckets of fun, too, in their own way. Fripp’s got an odd sense of humor (or humour) and Read more

I downloaded this concert three months ago. After a dozen or so listens, I’m only beginning to be able to sort out and articulate my feelings about it. I’ve been trying to work my way into Soundscapes (or they’ve Read more

While following the same general structure as the other soundscapes in the general time zone of this perfformance, this particular performance finds the heart of that structure and releases a fascinating interplay of tone and temperaments Read more

Though apparently this is edited down, it’s music allowed to ebb and flow at some length, which is the quality I enjoy most in Fripp’s Soundscapes (and Frippertronics) work. Nice. Had I been at the Bath train station, I would Read more

I think you’re thinking of the Construktion of Light. The track ’Thank You’ starts almost exactly the same as the little joining riff in the extra long intro to Construktion. Just my Read more

It was a big surprise to hear the embryonic version of Level 5 in ’Thank You".
No doubt: the works for/with David Sylvian was seminal.
