2 stars This is the second full album with Eno/Byrne, the first beeing the 1981 Masterpiece My Life In The Bush Of Ghosts set my expectations very high. Sadly they were not met. The album starts out with two rather boring tracks: Home & My Big Nurse, the songs are typical Byrne, the music rather slow speed, with a bit of the eno sound there, but not enough to make the track stand out as more than 2 discrete ballads. The 3rd. piece (6+ min.) is a change for the better, starts out with a jazzy piano sound that continues to lift this to the track i like the most, contains a nice bass line too, and some nice Phil Manzanera guitar. Sadly after this we are back to tracks of the boring kind, not that much to say about those, moving forward to track 8 Wanted For Life before anything exiting happens. This is a funny little piece of the more Funky kind, i was expecting from Eno/byrne, may not excatly be a masterpiece but the rythm's and sounds are interesting, and refreshing. Same goes for track 10, remind me a lot of the Byrne ballet music on The Catherine Wheel nice very nice.

In general this album does not meet my expectations. If you are a die hard Byrne fan i would say it could maby deserve 3 or even 4 stars, the vocals are fine, at times even very fine. But as an Eno album i cant give more than 2 stars.
