4 stars After The Heat is a collaboration effort between Brian Eno, Dieter Moebius and Hans Roedelius, and most resembles Eno's ambient works prior to this album, but is enhanced slightly by an amount of fervent energy. Much of the material has a caliginous feel, but also a misty and beautiful airiness that Eno's earlier ambient works usually have. I'm not too familiar with Moebius and Roedelius as of right now, but from what I understand they were large figures in the kosmische music scene, which seems to be very apparent on this album (which basically sounds like Eno + Schulze).

Brian Eno provide some vocals on the tracks "Broken Head", reversed vocals on "Tzima N'Arki", and sparsely on "The Belldog". I usually detest the use of vocals in my progressive electronic, although I try to keep an open mind, but the vocals here aren't really all that noticeable. The most noticeable would be the use of vocals on "Broken Head", which sounds like a super- noisy and dissonant track from one of Kraftwerk's early krautrock albums.

If there's anyone out there who has trouble getting into Brian Eno's chill ambient works and are persistent in their need to become a fan, After The Heat probably has just the right amount of energy and bizarreness to get you started.
