My only problem with the album is that the titles are misnamed. "The Heavenly Music Corp" goes great with the scene in "The Boys From Brazil" where the fat German women walk into the room and awaken all the blonde nazi girls being used to breed Hitler clones. Also, the music goes great with documentaries of Concentration camps. "Swastika Girls" on the other hand is very heavenly and reminds me of casinos. If you don't believe me, go to the back of the first floor casino in the Imperial Palace in Biloxi, MS. Close your eyes, and it's there!
I love this album. No words can describe my feelings. I'll leave it at that.
Track one, even though it was recorded more than thirty years ago, still sounds new and fresh, even after scores of listenings. It is made up of two guitar lines - but one of them is an incredibly complex, ever-changing loop that continually unfolds out of itself and interacts with the lead line. It's almost like Fripp is soloing over an entire band. but beware the sonic onslaught of the track's last three minutes - if you don't have good speakers the low notes will probably rip your woofers apart.
Track two presents a sunnier, happier side of looping, this time with Eno supplying the loop on his synthesizer. Fripp's entry (at 7:42) is fascinating. Throughout the solo he plays riffs and figures that he still uses to this day.
A great record for listening to in a large room in the dark, lodly.
There is no better and never will be.
