Editors’ Notes He’s known as the best guitarist The Red Hot Chili Peppers ever had, but John Frusciante prefers his solo career, which has proven that his own interests in music venture far beyond the testosterone-fueled funk-rock of his old band. On his own, Frusciante experiments with instruments and electronics like few others do. Enclosure is credited as his 11th full-length release; it was recorded and produced at his home studio in Los Angeles, like so many of his other solo albums and EPs. As with his albums of the ‘00s, there's great variety here within whatever strictures he’s insisted upon; Enclosure isn't the same album six or seven tracks in that it is for its opening tracks. “Fanfare,” the album’s fifth cut, is arguably the most accessible tune here. Its follow-up, “Cinch”—a melodic synth solo met with drum machines that speed out of control—creates a modern Pink Floyd–meets–drum ’n’ bass atmosphere. Frusciante’s professed love for the Roland MC 202 synthesizer sequencer (he owns six) lends a dark mechanical feel even to soulful cuts like “Sleep” and “Zone.” Brian Eno fans should find comfort here.
