4 stars This album is definitely innovative. Brian Eno masters the art of looping music and sounds here with his album and the minimalist nature of the album is very appealing. He uses for two tracks mainly synth and piano and for thw other tracks, voices and synths that sound like voices. I personally like 1/1 and 2/1 the best...even the names of the songs reflect his minmalist leanings. I have loved 'Ambient 1' for years now and it is my album of choice when I want to relax or ponder about something. Obviously, it won't have you completely lost in the music because there's not a lot of complex melodies to listen to. But it becomes a sort of soundtrack to whatever you're doing. I heard somewhere once that Eno designed this album to relax people in airports that were afraid of flying. An airport in New York actually did play this over their speakers in the background back in the seventies. If anything, this album is meaningful because Eno designed it with this purpose in mind.
