I have been a fan of Brian Eno for a long time and this album is again very experimental. I give any artist some praise for expressing themselves but this might be too far off the mark for most people. One artist who I have heard a lot about lately and I think has the best CD I've heard all year is Eric Walker and his cd Tangier Dream. Everyone should for sure check out his music here on itunes by searching for it. Eric Walker and his Tangier Dream cd is amazing. Sorry Brian but I think you missed the mark but for someone that has been around and is an icon my hats off to you for continuing to make experimental music.
I have thoroughly enjoyed this new work from Eno. I, as with the author of the previous review (Experimental), have followed Eno's work. I think that the author of the 'Experimental' review missed the point of this work, which I found refreshing and extremely well produced (as might be expected of BE). The spoken word as instrument challenges the different parts of the brain which can result in conflicted attention if not executed appropriately. The spoken voices in the work, 'Einstein on the Beach' by Phillip Glass add a percussive quality to the music which holds these musical and verbal aspects of the work together. In this work by Eno, the poems (which by themselves are wonderful) are more accessible yet add depth to the musicality of the pieces. Eno has done a superb job of successfully pulling these elements together. The piece, 'The Real", is a particularly beautiful creation.
I took up the challenge by the author LeeAnn Howe of the review 'Experimental' , to give Eric Walker's release "Tangier Dream" a fair listening. I did, and found that it did not stand up to the promotion. My recommendation to other Eno fans who may be thinking about downloading Walker's album based on LeeAnn Howe's review is, don't. You won't like it - it is deafeningly unoriginal, cloying and I have removed it from my Playlist without remorse.
