3 stars This album reminds me a lot of another electronic exploit of more recent times, namely Moby's Play. Both albums are filled with a wide variety of short tracks varying between songs and ambient snapshots, but whatever the type of the piece, all of them are rather uneventful and dispassionate: every track starts as if it could get somewhere interesting but after 2 or 3 minutes of musical stand-still, all of them end before getting anywhere at all.

The other angle is to approach this album for its historical value, which is nothing short of ground-breaking. Scattered throughout the album lay the seeds for the sounds of the next decade, inspiring artists like John Cale, David Bowie, Japan, Ultravox, Simple Minds and many others. But since each of those have music that transcends Eno in both songwriting and performance, the album has little to offer beside its historical relevance.

Eno is sure a pillar in rock history but I prefer him in collaborations with strong songwriters. On this album I find him pleasant but rather uninvolving. Much like his vocals by the way. 3.5 stars still.
