Prog Reviewer
4 stars The second in Brian Eno's ambient series - and the second of Harold Budd's albums produced by Eno - sees Budd performing his sparse, minimalist piano pieces with production, sound treatments and very mild contributions by Eno. As Eno explains it, he essentially created a sonic space within which Budd performed - in other words, Eno creates the context, but it's Budd who is in the spotlight. Budd's gentle and soothing piano tones create an effect entirely consistent with the declared aim of Eno's Ambient series - as with its predecessor, this is music which you can listen to intently, or which you can allow to blend seamlessly into the background as you desire.

On the whole, it's another excellent entry in this series, which may not be to the tastes of all prog fans but will appeal to those interested by the ambient experiments of Eno, Tangerine Dream and others.

Warthur | 4/5 |
