3 stars Thursday Afternoon was originally commissioned by Sony to accompany a series of 7 video paintings Eno made for them in 1984. It's another of Eno's ambient works, featuring ghostly treated piano playing simple, repetitive motifs against a backdrop of gentle washes of electronic sound. The various componenents gradually shift into new permutations as the piece unfolds, but everything happens very slowly and extremely quietly - the final few minutes omit the piano altogether, leaving only the semi audible background noise to gently crystallise into new forms. It's a highly successful ambient work, but definitely non- essential as an addition to a prog collection. Ideal for listening to as you fall asleep.
