Collaborators/Experts Reviews

Review by Sean Trane
SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Prog Folk
3 stars As the booklet indicates, this album is really an improvisation of the two participants that had been speaking for years to collaborate. So they did their things apart and super- imposed them. And as strange as it might appear, it actually sounds fairly good, but in all likelihood, there must've been a fair share of editing too.

While I confused Roger with his brother Brain at first, the resulting album is much the same as if it was Brian playing on it. While Hammill's participation is rather important, it is rather out of character of what you could be expecting from him. Peter does not sing or throw heavy guitar chords and he is in a rather quiet (even subdued) mood and this of course leaves Eno lots of room for him to glide his ambiances and dive them through Hammill keys and strings arpeggios. The resulting album is more an ambient record than a new age record (there is a subtle difference) and it is in general correct listening, but really nothing essential; let's face it, the average proghead will probably not be spinning this slice more than once in a couple of year after the initial discovery, so it is not really worth the investment.

Beit from Brian or Roger, an album signed by Eno is never really my cup of tea and adding a cloud of Hammillk will not change anything for me. ;-)

3 stars The audiophiles who knew too much! I am going to bore you a bit, about how this "The Appointed Hour", 1999, music experiment came upon. On a specific hour and date, Roger Eno in his "studio", miles away of Peter Hammill´s one, recorded unconnected from each other for an hour exactly and then sto ... (read more)

3 stars According to the ratings table (and admittingly some of the music contained) this is a 2-star album only but deserves at least one or even two more stars simply for the idea behind it. Hammill and Brian's brother Roger Eno apparently only met once on a tour bus years ago, kept in touch and de ... (read more)
