5 stars "Silence is a distant echo of the approach of the Muse."-Robert Fripp

Space symphonic music achieved with a processed electric guitar plus its mirror loops, played as environmental music in between Robert Frippīs solo interventions and his collaboration alongside quiet more famous disciples, this being the 12th gig of the G4 tour feauturing Joe Satriani, Steve Vai and Kenny Wayne Shepherd. None of these guys except for Fripp of course, participate in this 2015 "KENEALLY", but Mike Keneally (featured here in PA ) does. Out of nowhere, but with extraordinary results.

Ok, enough credentials, to where it matters the music itself. Considering the attention, patience and mastery, Fripp has acquired in playing for not that "friendly" or up front indifferent audiences, somehow it adds up to the miracle of creating these masterful pieces and achieving such an multi-directional yet focused perfection.

This live recording compresses Robert Frippīs best musical ideas transfixed with elegance into space like music, which has no real resemblance in the Prog world, not even with the P/E category, as to compare with. But those familiar with this kind of space trips in the classical music field (i.e.Holst, Mahler, Stockhausen, etc.), will find the time and full-attention it requires to explore this Robert Frippīs electronic/symphonic, "planets" and "cosmos" musical concept.

Add up a mirror image of a young Robert Fripp in the form of Mike Keneally, playing alongside "old" self Fripp, like a trip through time, as a trip through a very touching and intimate, yet universal and human to the bone space journey.

*****5 "MASTERWORK" from A to Z!" PA stars.
