iTunes Review

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.

Customer Reviews

Lovely throwback

Excellent. Nothing obviously ambitious here, just a slab of sustain-drenched old-school ambience from the Master, himself. If you like what you hear in the previews, the record is 75 minutes of it.

Excellent

I have listened to the stream a couple times now, and so far it's brilliant. The best Eno album I think I've heard in a long time! If you like his older ambient music, you'll definitely love this.

Incomparable Eno

Brian Eno never fails to please, and it is the ambient pieces that continue to be his best works. LUX is no exception. Mood trumps melody in this exceptional "environment soundtrack" piece and proves once again that nobody produces more beautiful music of the genre than its inventor.

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,...
