~~ Two of the most innovative english musicians offers new, floating and truely ethereal music. No Pussyfooting is a wedding of electronic instruments and electric guitars. A real success ! Waves of synthetizers from Eno creates a mystical ambiance, while Fripp's guitar playing, calmer than in King Crimson's records, is spacey and trippy, nonetheless always haunting and personal. The album consists in two long pieces of nearly 20 minutes where time and space do not exist anymore.

The Heavenly Music Corporation is the most beautiful piece of music here, purely contemplative, growing and deep. The music evolves slowly with mysterious ambiances created by Eno superposed with Fripp's improvisations, alternating delicate and fast moments. The french electronic band Heldon has undoubtly been inspired from this tune. It gets angrier at the middle of the song but then calms downs and sounds die softly until the end. Magic ! The second side of the disc, Swastika Girls, is more electronic driven and minimalist. Rather odd sounds and pieces of small melodies grow up together to create a meditative atmosphere. Guitars appear in the second part of the song, both relaxing and terrifying by moments. As the melody softens, the sounds emerging from the synthetizers become stranger and stranger.

Despite its long passages, No Pussyfooting is a brilliant tour de force by Fripp and Eno. Apart from other experimental acts from this period, the artists created something unique and timeless which serves as a milestones for ambient and electronic musicians. A must !
