A disappointing descent into common "New Age"

"Maybe he was worried about being confused with his brother. Or maybe the record company was putting the screws to him. But after the soulful explorations of "Voices" and his subsequent efforts, Roger Eno took a turn toward New Age sewage. I see now there were hints of it on "The Familiar," but I never thought R. Eno would resort to the New Age gloss that chokes "Lost in Translation.""

"You could see it coming in "The Familiar". Roger Eno has finally made the best album of His career; He hasn't done anything that comes even close to this pinnacle since. This album is somewhat like a Roger Eno scrapbook; Most of the tracks are less than three minutes long, and they all flow together to create a unified whole. I don't think anyone could match this. A most perfect Album."Sublime beauty combined with unequaled eloquence.""
Inexplicable But Sublime

"Perhaps he is an acquired taste or maybe I'm just strange (or both) but I have felt for years that Roger Eno is vastly underappreciated. His work on Music For Films and with brother Brian on "Apollo", are exquisite. "Lost In Translation" is exquisite as well; and hard to describe. It's said to be based on the writings of some medieval heretic no one's ever heard of; okay. The music reflects no heresy, it is a flow of musical consciousness that seems as if it came from the angels; fun-loving, Latin singing angels. Piano and Farfisa organ predominate, and Eno's gentle ethereal piano style creates the otherworldly atmosphere. Other instruments are used sparingly to great effect; an occasional horn, some strings, synthesizer, snare drum, and then there are the voices. Several of the tracks feature shimmeringly beautiful chantlike harmonies. They are sung in Latin by what could be monks (though no monks appear in the credits). The vocals are not a gimmick, a pretense or a mockery. they just are. They are essential to the weird, joyful, mournful grandeur of this very strange, original and breathtaking CD. Simply put "Lost In Translation" by Roger Eno is one of a kind."
