"The term "classic album" has been devalued somewhat through overuse, but if ever an album has proved worthy of the term it's Robert Fripp's 1979 solo debut "Exposure". An invitation from David Bowie and Brian Eno in July 1977 resulted in his appearance as lead guitarist on "Heroes", David Bowie's second 1977 album, and marked Fripp’s return to full time musician. Further work with Daryl Hall, Peter Gabriel, The Roches, and Blondie preceded the sessions. Recorded at the Record Plant in New York, the album was originally conceived as part of a trilogy alongside Daryl Hall's "Sacred Songs" and Peter Gabriel's second solo album (both Fripp produced). When "Exposure" finally appeared in 1979, its mixture of songs, singers, instrumentals, snatches of speech, audio verite sound collages - all linked by an autobiographical/diary approach - presented a very different musician from that of the initial King Crimson period 1969-74. Now presented in single LP form as remixed from the original multi-track master tapes by Steven Wilson as part of his work on the "Exposures" boxed set, the album retains all of the power and vitality that made it such a compelling listen when first released."
