Review by admireArt
4 stars Well, opposite to what one will suspect, but average in an average Prog world of opinions and tastes, Brian Eno's works, as many other former band members who went solo, are underrated without hesitation by disappointed or offended raters, to be honest it is quiet funny to watch that side of the average listener's school yard.

Anyway, for starters Brian Eno's 2017 "Reflection" advertisement reviews do not stop mentioning "Discreet Music", 1975, which is the easy way out to explain this meditative, yet not symphonic at all as "Discreet Music" was, release.

But let me state that indeed this is a one track , 54 minutes dronescape by one of the "dronescaping" pioneers when the word drone was not even associated with these musical compositions, choosing for the no less iconclastic yet amiable (and mostly misunderstood) term of Ambient music.

So, as you may intuit, this is no speed freak's paradise, maybe their hell. Slow paced transmutation of simultaneous, full or minimalistic, ethereal flowing melody lines, counterpointed by the oncoming and ongoing echoing of bells which are the guiding lights as they are the subtle launching pads to its constantly changing musical structures' detours, making it rich, creative and deep, yet conceptual as a single track.

Vigorous, obscurely fresh, perfectly timed and true to its creator's language, the undercovered diversity of musical composition environments add up for an attractive (even addictive) memorable listening experience.

****4 (This one stays home!) PA stars.
