CD Reviews

Non Ambient Eno
Randy Nicolosi | Shelton, CT United States | 11/23/2003
(4 out of 5 stars)

"I feel bad about the reviewers who downrated this CD because they were expecting ambient ENO. I've never been a big fan of his ambient works, preferring his vocal / rock works. That said, I think this is a good collection, but is too short; like having a great appetizer, but no dinner to follow. So, it's a good collection, but if you enjoy this style of ENO as I do, you should buy all the CDs."
The best introduction

"If you're starting to poke around this strange figure "Brian Eno" that you've heard about but haven't made a purchase yet, BUY THIS. This cd contains incredible songs which will stay with you forever, and will make you buy his 4 early vocal albums they're from: Here come the warm jets, Taking tiger mountain by strategy, Another green world, and Before and after science."
A bit heavy on the slow stuff
ADP | Washington, DC USA | 05/17/2000
(4 out of 5 stars)

"This compilation of 70's recordings by Brian Eno leans too heavily on his slowest music, ignoring his noisy, Velvet-Underground-inspired rockers that are so deliriously brilliant. Still, Eno's slow songs come with plenty of their own pleasures, especially the almost-country "Here He Comes" and the breezy "St. Elmo's Fire," which could have been a hit single. "Everything Merges with the Night" may not move quickly, but it has genuine power, and it shows that high-pitched guitar sustain need not be confined to the soundtracks of sleazy movies. The bottom line: This is some of the best pop music anyone has ever made, in the 70's or any other decade. Even a mediocre compilation of it is a great experience."
