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.

Sometimes in Soundscapes Robert Fripp returns to the sounds which he was using in the past but which are still fascinating. It seems that some of the effects are still available in his equipment despite its constant change and Read more

This is a beautiful piece of work. I hope that we see some of this on the new Crim.

The song makes those moments live for us, and bring their influence into our lives as well. I’ll share this:

This was like a flash back to 70s Crim to me with an eye towards the future that is now. (if that makes any sense). Wouldn’t it be nice to find Jakko’s vox and words included in the new and upcoming Read more

This isn’t a review but more of a big Thank You. To Hazy Dave, Thanks for the heads-up on the FLAC version of "Time Stands Still" not being defective. I downloaded the neccesary software and re-downloaded the track in Read more

If the mp3 version still has the strange skip and random cut-up characteristics noted by LouieB, try the flac download instead, as I hear no clearly unintentional glitches of the style he describes in that version of "Time Read more
