Sylvian's opted for a very clean approach.
Michael Stack
Music is part ambient, part psychedelic, part avantgarde Jazz, some interesting rhythms too.

To my taste, it is one of the best recordings of Robert Fripp.

Like Pink Floyd, the music of Sylvian & Fripp (what little we have) was a study in contrasts; the result of two volatile musical personalities trying to mesh and almost - but not quite - coming together. You can hear them playing with AND against each other. The mix is challenging and invigorating in its contradictions, but that's also the reason why it ultimately couldn't last. Sylvian's home is the studio; Fripp truly comes alive on stage. David tends to polish and perfect songs in a live setting; Robert delights in seeing what different paths the music will lead him down every night. Their musical personalities are evident in abundance on this disc. Sylvian washes sound and tones in the most sublime and ethereal way; Fripp on the other hand solos in wild leaps and bounds.
Ths contrast continues with Damage. The original version, mixed by Robert, was limited to one pressing and sold out almost immediately. Since it's now almost impossible to find the original without selling a kidney, the rest of us can be grateful for David's rerelease. Here the flip side of the coin shows the event from his perspective. We get a more layered mix, giving the impression of a recording from a small quiet club rather than a large theater or auditorium. To some it may sound more easygoing and intimate, to others it may seem to lack the fire and live energy of an actual concert.
Sound criticisms aside, Damage shows the music finally finding its legs; comparing it to The First Day is like attending a play's closing performance after only previously seeing one of the rehearsals.

I didn't have to sell a kidney to get the original Damage CD, but I'm blessed to own it, because it just shows (in my opinion) that Fripp understands music and performance aspects better than Sylvian. The original CD is so well paced, edited, mixed, everything that you literally can't move while you're listening. This edition is slower and seems to lack energy (even though they're essentially the same performances). It's quite instructive, actually. Fripp made the first Damage very impersonal (all the 'thank you's and count-offs are excised). This version keeps them and, in so doing, ruins the aura that the original one had. And where is Darshan? Jean the Birdman is great, but it makes no sense to leave Darshan off this 'tour' CD.
That said, if you can't get a copy of the original Damage CD (and surely someone will burn it for you if you need), you HAVE to at least own this one...

Format: Audio CD
David Sylvian and Robert Fripp's "First Day" collaborative studio album received a lukewarm reception back in the early '90s, largely because its cerebral guitar work clashed with the pared-down appeal that Grunge held at the time, and also because its nihilistic, almost violent and distortion-fuelled core was somewhat foreign to Sylvian's well-established fan base. But this release of a concert recording from that period illustrates how well the music has endured. Its ornate and layered nature sits very well with the production-intensive focus that Rock currently enjoys, and the consummate guitar skills that Fripp and Michael Brook display are far less stigmatised now that Rock and Jazz have become mainstream bedfellows. However, it's the inclusion of superb re-interpretations of some of Sylvian's earlier songs, particularly those off the "Gone To Earth" album which ultimately make this concert recording that much more desirable.

Format: Audio CD
The early '90s found vocalist David Sylvian and guitarist Robert Fripp on the road together in a band that Fripp had wanted to call King Crimson, performing material that sounded quite a bit like King Crimson. After recording a studio record (the superb "The First Day"), the pair released this live album in limited edition. It was eventually reissued with a David Sylvian production credit and a slightly different track listing and track ordering (the original was produced by Fripp and then-frequent production partner David Bottrill). This is the reissue.

The music first--what a performance! Sylvian (on vocals, guitars and keyboards) and Fripp (on guitar) had assembled a fine supporting cast-- infinite guitarist Michael Brook and future King Crimson members Trey Gunn (Chapman stick) and Pat Mastelotto (drums) to work up a really potent stew. The addition of Mastelotto and his admittedly somewhat heavier hand provides the live performance with a fantastic energy-- everything is powerfully rendered with Mastelotto's tribal-tinged rhythms providing a backbone that certainly seems to inspire Fripp-- his performances masterfully trump the studio recording with jaw-dropping energetic solos on pieces like "God's Monkey", "20th Century Dreaming" and especially "Firepower" that really make the album cuts look like pale shadows in comparison.

Along the way, the band performs a few songs from Sylvian's catalog-- "Gone to Earth", "Wave" and "Riverman" from "Gone to Earth" (all of which featured Fripp on the album) all get readings here as does Rain Tree Crow/Japan reunion classic, "Every Colour You Are".
