Hypnotic and Atmospheric

It sseems so easy when I listen to these pieces of Eno's, but who else can find that space between soothing, and edgy? Thin air and substance? No one. Put this on and work in a wonderfully productive mood for an hor.

A Masterpiece

I used to listen to Thursday Afternoon on repeat while doing Linear Algebra homework in college. You hear its nothingness a half-dozen times, then you realize: there are moments in it that you can now recognize; moments as clear as your name being called out loud, each and every time the CD repeats.
