4 stars The Shutov assembly is one of Eno's more accessible ambient works. Listeners who find the near static hour long meditations on Thursday Afternoon and Neroli heavy going will find this album a lot more palatable - there are 10 pieces, mostly fairly short, which means that there are changes in mood and texture every few minutes. The best point of comparison is On Land, although on this album there are no other musicians adding extra texture to Eno's mostly electonic soundscapes. It's the musical equivalent of looking at a series of watercolour landscapes - gently evocative and soothing. Excellent late night background music.
Syzygy | 4/5 |
