2 stars Around the time that he found ambient music, Eno the musician lost his way. His obsession with tranquil, unobtrusive tonal washes made him unlistenable, except as background music. While he experimented with ambience and tranquility in some of his earlier works, ever since Music For Airports, even his non-ambient albums have been mostly boring.

Eno appears to be making an attempt to get away from that ambient new age rut here, but he mostly fails. What we get here are rhythmss and sounds, no actual composed songs. Some of it is mildly interesting. Most of it is not.

I suppose if I had to select the better tracks, I would choose Juju Space Jazz for it's somewhat interesting sounds, and Ali Click, where Eno actually almost sings. I long for the wordplay he used in the lyrics of his early albums. You get a small amount of that on this one song.

Evolver | 2/5 |
