A Mixed Response
Looper | Ft. Calhoun, NE. | 06/13/2000
(3 out of 5 stars)
"This, Roger Eno's first solo album, gets a mixed response from me. A few of the tracks, such as "Through The Blue" and "The Old Dance" stand out as some of my all-time favorites. But why do "Voices" and "The Day After" seem to sound just the same? And is it mere coincidence that "Recalling" and "A Place" use the same Left-Hand piano chord pattern? This is an Album that has to be included in the Canon of R. Eno's greatest works, but it also seems more like a vehicle for Brian Eno's "Treatments" than a Roger Eno solo debut."
A Great Debut

"I believe this was R. Eno's first album and it is, along with "Between Tides," (which for some reason is hard to find) his most successful. "Voices" has a lot in common with the Eno/Budd classics "The Pearl" and "Plateaux of Mirror" (the latter of which is also puzzingly hard to find), but is more literal, less moody. A listener will find that, much like Brian Eno's work, the compositions adapt well to a variety of moods and landscapes. The album's chameleon-like quality makes it as relevant now as when it first came out. Later R. Eno would descend miserably into New Agey "chamber music," but has recently surfaced from that muck with "Damage," an album also worthy of investigation."

"With atmospheric treatments provided by brother Brian, "Voices" is a lovely album that merits positive comparison to works by Harold Budd. As other reviewers have noted, it has a very similar feel to the ambient classic "The Pearl". It is a bit different however, a little less abstract perhaps. I've been listening to this album for about 20 years now and it definitely holds up."
