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.

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 Read more

I tried another bit of "Xenochrony" with this one (A process I’ve now decided could be called ’Kcolliding’) - it works rather nicely if you superimpose it over "Pastorale: Mendoza".

As is routine, another georgeous performance. What’s to understand? Vintage Fripp, to be savored like a fine wine. Beauty is what it is...

This is a rare look into the mind of a master of his craft. While it’s explicitly about guitar craft, the discussion would apply to anyone who creates things out of thin air, including comptuer Read more

I’d love to have two copies of this. First, I’d love one "clean" copy for my students, for in terms of recorded poetry readings, it’s well done; it really captures the feeling of the poems Read more

Fooking funny! And also quite continental in a word.

The poems are great, but the profanity just makes this. I’d love to hear Robert recite some Kevin Bloody Wilson lyrics now.... Excellent find!

Absolutely brilliant!! This is ’true’ music...a soul calming and spiritually enlightening experience. Easy on the ear, the gliding musical transformations are both delicate and intricate. Thankyou Robert for this masterpiece.

...nor do I think it should be. A little too ’polished’ for my taste with lyrics a bit too obvious. Still, it’s a pleasant listen. Read more

In terms of album releases, At the End of Time represents a transformation in Soundscapes. There is the melodic soloing along the lines of The Equatorial Stars; there is the fascination with rapid-fire (for Soundscapes) repetition that is hinted at Read more
