If you like Vir Unis, Alio Die, Vidna Obmana, Robert Rich, Steve Roach, Matthias Grassow and other great masters of drifting ambient.
The pillars of hercules starts with the sound of waves and turns into a floating mist of drones and drifts that reminds me a little of Obmana and Alio Die loops.
The sky below is one of my favourite ambient pieces ever, it's a wonderful work - eerie, atmospheric, bright, cinematic - like taking a morning breath on clear blue day.
A temple in the clouds starts with a deep mood and continues like that with drifts floating into eachother.
It's a very hazy work, I think "cloudlike" is a good description where deep and light, dark and bright continuesly blend... it's ambient.
The stars below is another one of my favourites ambient pieces, it continues on the same path
as The sky below , a very beautiful work with choirs and just the right warm drifts and mood, very atmospheric and cinematic, unfortunately it's too short I would have liked to hear at least ten minutes of this, but replay works.

I bought this album some years ago and had a memorable experience of wandering around the ruins of Greek temples at Parnasus, south of Naples listening to this on headphones. Perhaps Fripp has produced better soundscapes, but this album is pretty mesmerising. Fayman adds a fascinating ambience to Fripp's guitar loops which works extremely well. It is a shame they did not do more together. A unique sonic experience in the cannon of Fripp's work and one that rewards repeated listening.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not Fripp's best, but fine soundscapes 7 Nov. 2000
By Steven Yates - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
After listening to this and then going back and listening to both the Fripp & Eno recordings (No Pussyfooting and Evening Star) I understand where the Fripp & Eno comparisons are coming from. Is Temple in the Clouds as good as these? No, I don't think so. But then again, I don't think those two will ever be surpassed; they're the original classics of ambient. Is this collaboration worthwhile? Yes, if you're into ambient sound-sculptures that still push the envelope a bit. While the four tracks on A Temple In the Clouds don't have the quiet, near-academic discipline and focus of No Pussyfooting or Evening Star, the four tracks on Temple in the Clouds are certainly mesmerizing, and surely as good as any of the non-dance-oriented trance that's come out this year (except, maybe, for Biosphere's things). The use of tape-loop sequences are somewhat less evident than on Fripp's earlier recordings, buried as they are in heavy keyboard washes. Titles like "Pillars of Hercules" and the title track, however, beautifully capture the mood of the piece.
The overall mood of this CD fits nicely with the Projekt catalog, and it is not hard to see why Fayman & Fripp went with Projekt instead of Fripp's regular outlets. No, this isn't No Pussyfooting II or Evening Star II, but it is an intense, layered CD that belongs in your collection if you like your ambient with a little touch of darkness.

5.0 out of 5 stars ticket to another world 31 Mar. 2005
By Ben Dover - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Maybe it's just me, but I cannot listen to this CD without becoming utterly transported to some other world. It's not for actively 'listening to', but have it on while reading Lovecraft or some similar otherworldly tome, or while painting, or writing, or dozing... it gives me a delerium-like 'high'. I think something about the sounds and the semi-random noise induces some kind of alpha-waves or wakes up the right side of my brain or something. I found my first copy at the library and became addicted enough to buy the CD for myself. I wish I could find another album like this but I have not yet; no other ambient album does this for me. Alas!
5.0 out of 5 stars Oblique Strategies 6 Oct. 2008
By Best Of All - Published on Amazon.com

The collaboration between Jeffrey Fayman and Robert Fripp delivers four dreamy soundscapes, with an ambience that will play to the moods of the listener; the textures will develop around the feelings being projected.

The performances are fascinating and subtle, inspiring and beautiful....it harkens back to the wonderful Fripp-Brian Eno collaborations within this genre of art.

Decent background music for relaxing. a couple of the tracks go way too long. If you are a fan of Eno's Ambient works, this is for you.

4.0 out of 5 stars A lot like evening star 11 Nov. 2000
By Ignaciocuev - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
If you like the soothing mercurial guitar lines in Fripp and Eno's Evening Star 's side one, you will like this cd for sure. Nothing new or spectacular, but really nice for quiet , relaxed listening.
