Half Notes: Robert Fripp and Brian Eno – Beyond Even (1992-2006) (2006)

2004’s Equatorial Stars seemed like a reunion after 12 years apart for these two ambient giants. After all, the last we’d heard from them was on Eno’s 1992 album Nerve Net, but little did we know that they’d been working together the entire time. This album pulls together the strongest bits of those sessions and, if you were a DGM Live follower, you may have previously seen this on the site under the name Cotswold Gnomes. It was subsequently edited a bit to flow better, and early buyers got the album in a two-disc edition where one disc features tracks that segue and the other has individual tracks — which makes it so much easier to add your favorites to a mix for your next party.

‘Half Notes’ are quick-take thoughts on music from Something Else! Reviews, presented whenever the mood strikes us.
