iTunes Review

Twenty-seven years between collaborations but Brian Eno and David Byrne don’t miss a step as 2008’s Everything That Happens Will Happen Today sounds much like what you might expect from the Eno-influenced Talking Heads era. Unlike the experiments of their 1981 collaboration My Life in the Bush of Ghosts, where the duo cut and pasted found sounds and grafted rhythm sections on top of disparate instrumentation, Everything relies on Eno pretty strictly for the music and Byrne for the lyrics and melody. This clear cut division of labor makes for relatively conventional returns, considering their avant-garde pedigrees. “Poor Boy” adds an experimental funk to the mix but a track such as “One Fine Day” best represents the tone of this album, sounding as it does like something Eno might have cooked up for U2. The opening track, “Home,” actually summons Simon and Garfunkel’s “Homeward Bound” with its nostalgic toasting of “home.” “My Big Nurse” hides some disturbing images behind its suave façade, uneasy as it is with the masses calmly accepting a low grade war. Masters of subtlety, Eno and Byrne leave the devil in the details. Deciphering those details is where this game begins.

Best of 2008

This album is absolutely fantastic and is my top pic for 2008. That David doesn't get more mainstream attention continues to baffle me. This collaboration with Brian Eno is beautiful and only gets better with each successive listen.

You can trace the geneological lineage in the tones, melodies and background texture in this record. It may seem like an evolution away from earlier Byrne/Eno collaboarations, but closer attention to the subtle "synthesised orchestration" combined with the unique qualities of Byrnes phrasing shows evidence of what they started many years ago. It is a calmer and more settled sound, it's as though they have both come to terms with the fact that sound can in itself still say something in an ordered way and that making a statement by arranging the psychic of tone and melody are as important as letting sound and notes in themselves take the front seat. Perhaps its no coincidence that the cover is a house or it is a beautiful home. A truly enjoyable listening experience that retains the rhythmic sensibility of Byrne with the symphonic genius of Eno

Ambient pioneer, glam rocker, hit producer, multimedia artist, technological innovator, worldbeat proponent, and self-described non-musician -- over the course of his long, prolific, and immensely influential career, Brian Eno was all of these things and much, much more. Determining his creative pathways with the aid of a deck of instructional, Tarot-like cards called Oblique Strategies, Eno championed theory over practice, serendipity over forethought, and texture over craft; in the process, he...
