I can't imagine what the reaction to this album would have been like in 1973. It is so different than any release of its time (or any time really). Fripp would have to be one of the greatest guitarists of all time. This album is so experimental and weird, yet oddly listenable. The recent CD release has an extra disc with a half-speed version of "Heavenly Corporation" which makes a great 40 minute ambient piece. The bonus disc also has both tracks in reverse. Find this double CD and buy it.
