    What a great post, Paulo!

    The Korg Kronos has a great FM Engine included with its other sound Engines and they market that aspect. I love having it.

    A crazy good album. Hall is brilliant. Fripp is brilliant. Together they made an album that is superb.
    Hall was pushed to some amazing things by Fripp and the other musicians.
