ok, so it's two tracks, and can't really be called a song, very prog in its construction, real whisper to a scream stuff and some of Robert Fripps finest work, lyrical and savage. Fantasticaly clean production as well. Reminds me of slint. the marimba intro to the first track's a bit unneccesary though.
The first two or so minutes of this track are very beautifully languorous as well as being very clearly related to the early work of Genesis in terms of instrumentation and musical materials. Unfortunately the song becomes bogged down under the weight of repetition of an altogether less attractive secondary figure that is introduced, filling most of the rest of the many minutes it goes on for.

Guitars and more guitars. These are the gods of heavy prog rock. Robert Fripp on lead guitars pounds out an unforgettable growling monster of an instrumental. Its atmospheric,dreamy,nightmarish and kind of taunting in places .Its simply great.

"One More Red Nightmare" is another hard out rocker featuring the vocal talents of bassist John Wetton, but I find the most haunting song to be the West Side Story-esque "Fallen Angel."
