Review by Matti
3 stars This is not the first time I choose to write the first review for a single instead of the source album which already is well reviewed. "Apollo - Atmospheres & Soundtracks" (1983) is one of the most beloved classics of ambient music. Legendary Brian Eno teamed up with his more New Age oriented brother Roger Eno and guitarist/ composer /producer /solo artist Daniel Lanois, who has worked with U2 among others. The album was made for director Al Reinert's documentary about NASA's Apollo missions, which was originally intended to be without any narration. The test audience's response wasn't encouraging, so the film went through a lot of changes and was released in 1989 titled For All Mankind. But the original soundtrack album had a life of its own, truly deservedly.

This promotional single offers a nice sample of that classic album. 'Silver Morning' was composed by Daniel Lanois and it focuses on his electric guitar textures that give some balancing, warm down-to-earth nuances to all the floating spaceyness during the album.

'Deep Blue Day' is one of the finest pieces of the album. A sort of a country-flavoured ambient instrumental with a dreamy and relaxed atmosphere. The soft, bouncy soundscape of spatial synths and mellow guitars is very charming. Hey, was it this piece that was used in the film Trainspotting, in the surreal scene of diving into crystal clear coral sea through a toilet seat? Clever!
