2 stars I remember seeing some reviews (when this was released) that compared it to "Another Green World". No. Where the earlier album had a mix of real instruments and warm, organic synths, this album is comprised of nothing but cold and sterile electronics (I'm reminded of two albums released by Devo's Mark Mothersbaugh several years ago, entitled "Music For Insomniacs"). And while "AGW" had a timeless sound and a melodic sense, this music seems to have been composed by a machine that wanted to emulate modern-sounding electronic music. The shorter pieces are tolerable, but the last track is 32 minutes of repetitious tedium. I kept thinking that some sort of hypnotic trance would envelop me at some point, but instead I was ready to scream. I never thought I'd sell an Eno album, but "The Drop", "Nerve Net" and "Neroli" taught me to listen first or else......
