3 stars Everytime I hear someone speak of this album , I cannot help to think of a mid-80's hamburger fast food chain commercial campaign with little old ladies yelling : "where's the beef?". That funny commercial as well as the fact that I heard this album around that time for the first time , make them in my mind bound forever .

This album is maybe historically important and was maybe groundbreaking at the time , but there is not much meat in it. Groundbreaking to a certain point too as in Germany there were tons of groupds didling with electronic music , were more ahead and more sophisticated: Tangerine Dream , Kluster, Ash Ra Tempel etc... The fact that this album became so important to the public eye, I think, is due to the SMBWMP (Stupid Mindless British Weekly Music Press - NME & MM) that held Eno much in admiration and its collaboration with the master of depth and soberness,Mr. Fripp! As for the music , it clearly predates most of Eno's Ambient music album series.

Rarely do I give an historically important album such a low rating , but really, in regards with today's standards, this one is really non-essential! Actually, I rounded it up to the third star!!!
