Robert Fripp – Let The Power Fall (An Album Of Frippertronics) – Cassette

Let the Power Fall is an album by English guitarist and composer Robert Fripp. Released in 1981, it is his second solo album and showcases his experimental and innovative approach to music.

Robert Fripp was a co-founder and guitarist of the band King Crimson, whose 1969 debut album In the Court of the Crimson King is a classic of the progressive-rock genre. He embarked on a solo career that allowed him to explore a wide range of musical styles and concepts. “Let the Power Fall” represents a departure from traditional song structures, instead focusing on atmospheric soundscapes and improvisational elements.

The album features Fripp’s distinctive guitar work, characterized by his intricate and precise playing. He incorporates various effects and techniques to create layers of textures and tones, resulting in a mesmerizing and otherworldly sonic experience.

Through 1995 they recorded sporadically, with Fripp being the only constant in a rotating set of band members. Fripp has also recorded with Brian Eno, Peter Gabriel and The League of Crafty Guitarists. His experiments with layers and loops, dubbed “frippertronics,” gave him a distinct sound and a reputation as an avant-garde rock guitarist.

Let the Power Fall is primarily an instrumental album, with sparse and ethereal vocals appearing on some tracks. The compositions are often repetitive and meditative, inviting the listener into a contemplative and introspective space.

The album received mixed reviews upon its release, with some praising Fripp’s experimentalism and the album’s immersive quality, while others found it challenging and inaccessible. Regardless, Let the Power Fall stands as a testament to Fripp’s boundary-pushing approach to music and his willingness to explore new sonic territories.

For fans of avant-garde, experimental, and ambient music, Let the Power Fall offers a unique and intriguing listening experience. It showcases Robert Fripp’s mastery of the guitar and his ability to create evocative and immersive musical landscapes.
