Robert Fripp continues to astound us. His soundscapes are one of the rare and excellent examples of how true music "might enter our sorry world" nowadays. One could learn a lot dealing with this mixture of spontaneity/sobriety. Another wonderful thing about it is that it can be approached and appreciated on many levels and by those who do not know who is Robert Fripp, what are soundscapes etc. i.e. you do not need any special introduction/knowledge to start listening, yet that depends only on you how far you’d go in exploring it. And as I see it now, there is a lot to explore. In short, listen to it and you might get what is Music.
Thank you very much for making your live performances recordings available via the net. I just have three remarks of the technical kind:
- if you offer mp3s, please do not make them in 128kbps or even in 192kbps -- that obviously distorts and spoils the original. Only 256 or 320kbps. But thank goodness you have it in FLAC. So I would recommend everyone to get the FLAC version otherwise there’s no sense to buy it.
- I think the artwork for these marvels could be more thoroughly worked out. But perhaps that is not important at all.
- "5 stars - Excellent" option is not enough here. I wish I could give it all stars.

I attended the Boston show and it was a very lifting experience. Robert Fripp was greeting people as they were entering to hall. I remember the music continued for over five minutes after they left the Read more

I think this is one of most beautiful Fripp music I ever heard. In a couple of years, maybe a little bit less or more, Uncle Bob changed way. It has not been a forced "decision" but a natural way Read more

Thanks one more time Mr. Fripp for taking us to another hidden cosmos inside your soundscapes.

This recording is a disappointment every time it ends. I wish it would go on for hours. Much better than expected.

What is most marvelous, and valid, about Mr. Fripp’s Soundscapes is that they contain within them an inquiry into how it is possible to make music, given the time, place, audience expectations, performer’s expectations and other factors leading Read more

The first question that I asked myself, in my was "Do I need to buy more Soundscape?". I decided that I did and my modest outlay has given me some very rich and useful Read more

Once again, Robert Fripp fails to disapoint with the latest live download entitled "Evensong". Drawn from two concerts performed during Fripp’s Soundscapes tour in Estonia, the three pieces that make up this set are some of the most gentle and Read more
|The Sound of Bells Gently Chiming Mon., Nov 27, 2006|

Does this music mostly settle into a mimicry of bells gently chiming on a quiet afternoon? Yes. Do I like the sound of bells gently chiming? Yes. Is the music reminiscent of the first two Fripp and Eno Read more
