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.

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

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
