This is a misunderstood and underappreciated album. It came on the heels of Riley's "In C" and "Rainbow in Curved Air". But you can't understand this album as a sequel to those masterpieces. This is a creative collaboration in which Riley demonstrates his creative range beyond the work of those previous albums. John Cale was a member of La Monte Young and Marian Zazeela's Dream Syndicate producing meditative drone music with non-western tunings.
This is not a rock album despite it being a collaboration with Cale whose creative range outside of rock music is much lesser known. Rather this is a creative efforts by two pioneering musicians exploring new territory. At worst it is a flawed masterpiece and it will likely not please the casual listener. But Cale and Riley fans should definitely be familiar with this set of tracks.
In the Hall of Mirrors will always be one of my favorite music tracks.
