"Since I was familiar with a few of the artists on this disc, I bought it against my better judgement. I should have listened to myself. This is a collection of really awful covers of Brian Eno songs. I can't express how disappointing this cd was. The cover of "3rd Uncle" was barely recognizable as the Eno song, which in itself isn't especially a bad thing, considering that Eno's music is about creativity and strangeness, but to completely rip it apart and sloppily throw it back together again as was done on this disc is just sad. The cover of "Somber Reptiles" is pretty bad too. Most of the other covers are just forgettable. Do yourself a favor and listen to the originals."
Classic Eno brought up to date?

"Nice try but it sort of loses it's way. I have been a Brian Eno fan since his days in Roxy Music and have most of his early works, I think Apollo is the last one I bought, up to now. It's interesting to hear how contemporary artists try to come to terms with the Masters work. I like 'Third Uncle' particlarly, and but not 'Baby's on Fire' - The Electric Hellfire Club have missed the point. Nice to think though that music which I listened to "way back then" is still relevent and is sill influencing."

"As an Eno fan anything that comes up with his name on it, either as a composer/performer or as a "tributee" catches my attention. I am glad I bought this album as it shows that Brian Eno's music is very robust. It survives the interpretation by other musicians. Actually, most of the pieces on this album are great. I listen to this CD very often. If you are thinking about buying this, why not get Bang On A Can's "Music for Airports" (another tribute to Brian Eno) as well. Different style but just as great."
