This album is Mastered for iTunes. Created to accompany a gallery show in Turin, LUX’s music is best approached as a continuous composition extending over four sections. As it unfolds, Brian Eno displays his mastery of mood and texture, as well as his ability to imply dynamic movement beneath placid surfaces. Longtime admirers of Eno's ambient albums will hear echoes of Music for Airports and The Plateaux of Mirror in its misty pastel contours. Lending musical support are Leo Abrahams on Moog guitar and Neil Catchpole on violin and viola; they add discreet but crucial embellishments to the keyboard figures providing the main structure. As LUX progresses, Eno and his collaborators lead listeners through a vast interior space that opens up with a steady, quietly mesmerizing flow. Bell-like murmurs suggest distant lights; firm piano chords lend weight to slowly billowing synthesizer daubs. LUX’s final two sections begin to take on the dimensions of a modern classical piece, hinting at a sense of completion. Ultimately, Eno blurs the distinction between composer and collaborator as he merges his musical vision with the listener’s own inner environment.
Let me start by asking, how can anyone not be impressed by Eno? The man is a legend and his work legendary. Ambient and entrancing is how i will always describe the waves of audible tones which emanate from my music system whenever I place Apollo or Music for Airports in the cd deck and press play. And, by the snippets I listened to on I tunes, of this new album it looks like we are in for another smooth, lay back and let the world flow by ride once more. Loving your work Brian.
You know what to expect. This is what you expect. Beautiful...drift away
If you love ambient music and want to be swept away into a beautiful electronic soundscape you will not find a better album! Brian Eno - more important than the Beatles!
