5.0 out of 5 stars Robert Fripp For All Time. August 6, 2007
Format:Audio CD
King Crimson's Robert Fripp continues his ongoing guitar Soundscape explorations with his latest release "At The End Of Time". In 2006, Fripp took some time out to perform in several churches in different territories including the UK and Estonia. It's these gigs that form the basis of this album.
Overall, the music is extremely peaceful and tranquil - the perfect type of music for relaxation. Fripp's layered Midi-guitar loops along with his fluid standard guitar leads are nothing short of astonishing. Every track on this disc is a standout and its continuous seamless arrangement give the impression of a long 74-minute symphony in 10 movements. The bell sounds used in the three different versions of "Evensong" are especially beautiful.
"At The End Of Time" is a definite must for the avid Robert Fripp fan and is one of his most beautiful albums ever made. This is highly recommended.
Also, the complete live performances from which the music on this CD was taken from can be heard and downloaded in their entirety from Robert Fripp's website. I definitely recommend the downloads in addition to this CD.

4.0 out of 5 stars More of the Brilliantly Beautiful Same October 12, 2008
Format:Audio CD
The funny thing about ambient, new age and any type of soundscape music is that some of the best complimentary remarks one can make would sound like insults were one speaking of any other genre. "This sounds like background music." "I can't remember which song is which " and "This music makes me sleep." I can apply all these comments to Fripp's soundscape albums. But I love them because they are beautiful. I love that they lack cloying melodies and lyrics that would distract as I read or work on my pc, and when I allow the cd to lull me to sleep, it is an unbelievably soothing and restful and peaceful doze into which I drift.

i am glad that I found music that fulfills a specific purpose -- and that the purpose is to achieve restful, peace of body and mind... wow, that's a tremendous thing.

I consider some of Eno's and most of Budd's work in this genre to be the 5 star stuff.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very meditative and relaxing July 17, 2007
Format:Audio CD
The perfect CD to relax and unwind to. I like all of Robert Fripp's Soundscapes. However, this "Churchscapes" is very appropriately titled as it has a very spirtual overtone and I find it very peaceful and theraputic. I think it would have been a wonderful experience to hear this live in the settings it was recorded.

I wound up playing this through about three times on the first listen and I have played again since then (all in one day). I highly recommend it and I believe it is a great addition to anyone who appreciates Fripps solo soundscapes.

5.0 out of 5 stars Incredible music, contemplative but rather jarring June 25, 2012
By maelje
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I waited a long time to write this review -- several months, in fact. Funny, but as much of a fan as I am of Robert Fripp, I somehow missed this album upon its initial release in 2007. Not until this February, 2012, did I hear it. And in fact, on first listen, I had to turn it off -- I found it so emotionally jarring, so anxiety-producing, that I simply couldn't take it.

Of course, I was driving through a rainstorm at the time that was threatening to turn to ice, and I was not physically very well, and I was on some medication that, shall we say, had somewhat altered my usual state of mind. But the main thing that unsettled me was simply the deep, resonant, booming/humming notes of Fripp's guitar as it came rumbling up out of the mix following the initial, beautiful tumbling of the bell-like tones that Fripp had chosen to begin with. Alas, I have ended that sentence with a preposition, but the spirit of the paragraph is accurate, and so must be left as it is.

After calming down a bit -- it helped that the rain relented somewhat, and I was feeling confident I could reach my destination that night -- I put the disc back in the CD player and tried again. This time, I made it all the way through the CD, but still had to pull over at one point...because I was in tears and could not see the road. Mark me: Fripp does not always produce such an emotional response in me. I love his Soundscapes albums and Frippertronics, and I'm a diehard King Crimson fan, but most often, what I experience in those settings is an appreciation for the technical brilliance of the music. Here, instead, I was overwhelmed by the fusion of joy and melancholy that's apparent in every note Mr. Fripp plays.

5.0 out of 5 stars My wife hates this CD December 5, 2010
By expatom
Format:Audio CD
I am reminded of Brian Eno's definition of ambient music: one can just allow it to be in the background, but if one pays attention they are rewarded. However this is beyond the usual ambient fare and really unclassifiable. No expectations - that is how one should listen to this music.

My wife hates this CD. She says it has no melodies, no beats, no direction. I have to play it when she's not in the room. But I love it. The textures continually evolve and surprise. It sounds fresh to me every time I listen to it. It has a spiritual quality about it that is savory, not sweet. I have been following Fripp for many years, through many incarnations. This feels like a culmination - something that will only grow in importance with time - like Coltrane's "A Love Supreme."

5.0 out of 5 stars Frippertronically wonderful.
This is just wonderful. Not much melody, as you would expect, but it frippertronically takes you along on some wonderful harmonies and timbres. Read more

3.0 out of 5 stars not King Crimson
not enough experimentation or musical variety here . I love King Crimson ( which is Robert Fripp , after all ) but too much of Mr Fripp's solo stuff is a bit safe . Read more
