Reseña de álbum

The musical reunion between David Byrne and Brian Eno comes with a fair amount of baggage. After all, they produced some of the greatest records in rock history: the trio of Talking Heads records that Eno worked on, culminating in Remain in Light, and followed by the duo's My Life in the Bush of Ghosts, where all manner of Afro-funky beats and freaky sampladelic rhythms were wedded to Pentecostal exorcisms and ceremonial bush chants. Everything That Happens Will Happen Today is a nearly 180-degree turn from the duo's collective musical past. These 11 songs are loopy pop tunes that wed Byrne's strange hearing of gospel and folk to Eno's continually evolving rhythmic and electronic palette — they refer to it as "folk-electronic-gospel." Granted, Eno's compositional frameworks are all written in major keys, and Byrne's poetically funny, sophisticated lyrics express possibility and hope in the middle of cultural darkness, but while it's clear that the emotional component is shared between the two principals, this is far from "message" music. The set opens with "Home." Strummed acoustic guitars and drum loops textured by sonic wonkery introduce an elegantly simple melody where Byrne, at his full-throated best, sings: "The dimming of the light/Makes the picture clearer...I memorized a face so it's not forgotten...Come back anytime/And we'll mix our lives together/Heaven knows what keeps mankind alive/Every hand — goes searching for its partner in crime." Brokenness and paradox are also addressed: "Home where my world is breaking in two/Home with the neighbors fighting/Home — were my parents telling the truth?" Likewise, the title track — with its warm, liquid guitars, out-of-the-ether sonic architecture, and Byrne's lyric coming from both dream and reflection — is slower and less jaunty, but poetically moving: "Oh my brother, I still wonder, are you all right/And among the living, we are giving/All through the night...." The backing choral voices give the track its "church" feel, but the message is more human and existential than divinely inspired. Another winner is "Life Is Long," which evokes remembrance as the continuation of the chain of human events. Its horn section touches on soul and rhythm & blues, but is blanched and diluted wonderfully. The only track that consciously attempts the rhythmic complexity of anything on My Life in the Bush of Ghosts is "Poor Boy," which is cosmic science-fiction white-boy funk at its best. It's a warning against following the established order and rampant, empty materialism for their own sake — its guitar riff comes straight from the Rolling Stones' "Brown Sugar." Everything That Happens Will Happen Today is, despite the long odds, an inviting, musically satisfying endeavor. It reveals that veteran artists are capable of redefining themselves when refusing to take themselves too seriously. This is unfettered joyful listening.

Strange Overtones

I'm really impressed with this body of work! Being close to 50, I now find myself underwhelmed by almost everything that I hear - it feels like I've heard everything before and there is nothing, recently (outside of Amos Lee's latest) that possesses value...that feels like art to me. Anyway, this record has value to me and, upon reflection. I would have paid $100 for this record! Eno's grooves and Byrne's soulful voice & poignant lyrics are like chocolate and peanut butter: perfectly matched and perfectly balanced! These are two masters are on top of their game! Finally, I believe that Strange Overtones should be a #1 Pop hit. Now, the chances of that happening are slim to none, but how cool would it be to see popular music awakened from its long coma, by the second coming of these musical Messiahs?!

Will be a modern masterpiece of contemporary music....

The beauty of this album is it's ability to be many things, to many people, with various expectations and taste. Those of us that grew up with Brian and Byrne and their peculiarities can appreciate that this release has plenty of richness and substance, but ultimately it is very accessible to the less demanding and uninitiated. After all, just because it's "alternative" doesn't mean the artist would not prefer it reach and be accepted by many. This is one of those rare gems that you'll want to share with anyone willing to listen (to you and the music) so the gospel of these two ultra-talented citizens touch as many as possible. As to how it rates in my collection, it's early but I'm dong all I can to not play this continuously, and give some time to the other 11,000 + files of my library. Also, if you don't have it already, pick up the Eno & John Cale release of 1990, called the "Wrong Way UP" Give me these two titles along with some Miles Davis, some Coltrane and top it off with some Dylan, Knopfler and Ralph Stanley and I'm complete and ready to go deserted island hunting. Good luck and hope you dig it as much as I do.

WHOA...Eleven songs of GENUIS

Brian Eno And John Cale made the number ONE album of all time with WRONG WAY UP which contained the number ONE song of all time with SPINNING AWAY. This CD, after only one listen has jumped to the number TWO cd of all time. Brain Eno is a genuis.

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,...
