Synopsis

Album Description
Generally known as an ambient composer, on Swimming Roger Eno took a more traditional, mature and very British path with charming songs creating a deep and romantic mood, almost devoid of his typical classical ensemble instrumentation. Tracks such as "In Water" feature hypnotic guitars which glide through acoustic space. Elsewhere instruments such as accordion, harmonica and keyboards create new atmospheres in traditional songs such as "Over The Hills."

Roger Eno Expands Romantic Era From English Base
Larry Bottorff (mrprenzl@midusa.net | Moundridge, Kansas | 10/08/1999
(4 out of 5 stars)

"If we read nineteenth-century lit and then listen to its music, we come away confused by the disparity. While the literature hovered squarely over Northwest Europe's very own melancholy and mystery, damp and dark, the music might just as well flit away into sugar and sweetness--listen to Strauss's "Also Sprach Zarathustra" for a perfect example of the schizophrenia. Roger Eno's music, however, is a continuance of the Romantic or Victorian Era's literature. Swimming is all but devoid of Eno's typical classical ensemble instrumentation, but the deep, romantic, NWEuro mood is present in droves. Swimming, as with all of Eno's output, is decisively mature emotionally, obviously British, humble, and peaceful. Eno is touching with Swimming, but with emotion 100% sugar-free. It's such a shame that you're always pointed to the New Age Ninnies section when you ask for Roger Eno. . . ."
