    Just picked up the new Paul Simon album, Surprise. And, surprise, Brian Eno is credited with electronics on all tracks except for one. The back cover says "Sonic Landscape by Brian Eno". It's quite good but probably won't ever get reviewed here since Paul isn't really considered progressive. Maybe that should change with this release.

Mr Eno gets about! I'm just exploring his music at the moment, and would be vey interested in a new Eno release.

I've never regarded Paul Simon as prog in any way, but a case could be argued. I've never really liked his music - with the exception of some stuff with Garfunkal.
Ultimately bored by endless ecstasy!

    Yeah, I really loved Another Day On Earth. I enjoyed Simon's Graceland, but hadn't picked up anything else he's done since. Some of the Simon and Garfunkel stuff fits into the prog folk category (I Am A Rock in particular). I picked this one up at the Atlanta Tower Records, which is going out of business. I'll miss that store. It was a great place to browse and run across stuff that I wasn't aware existed. It was the store where I first found out that PFM had made it to CD. When I looked at the back of Surprise and saw Eno, I said way cool, I gotta get this one. It is the next best thing to another Eno solo album. It might not be for you if you really dislike Simon and/or S & G.

I followed the news that Eno was producing this album for months prior to its release, but I haven't liked any of the (2 or 3) songs I've heard on the radio.  Guess I'll check out the rest of the album.

I never listen to radio and am curious what's getting air play. I liked the whole thing, but if there are 2-3 you've heard and don't like, you might not care for the rest. I'm a "big tent" prog fan. Still, I stand by my opinion that if you're a big Eno fan, you'll like this one.

Eno can produced or "accompaniate" over many things. No surprise.

He also does a cover version of a song for Jools Holland's new country album. Wink

Don't forget his work with Robert Wyatt too, especially on Shleep.

Shocked= No fair, Slart!Ouch
(Wish my parents had called me something cool like that -- sigh.) 
 
My prior thread about this fine album only got one (initial) response! You cheated, sly beggar, by making it seem like an Eno thread! Wah!Cry
 
As I said then, it's a solid album -- not sure about the mass appeal to Eno fans, though.Ermm
 
'Tis more of an album for Paul Simon fans, methinks....Wink
