4 stars States of mind.

Apollo Atmospheres and Soundtracks (1983) is one of Brian Eno´s more inspired and distinguishable works due to some favorable factors. The teaming of both the Eno brothers with the highly eclectic composer / performer / sound engineer Daniel Lanois, conceptually inspired by the space travels of the Apollo missions and brought to life as the soundtrack for the film/documentary "Apollo" (later retitled "For All Mankind"), directed by Al Reinert.

So as I was telling, three creative composer/musican minds focused on a single project brings out the best of each one and one another in this specific fortuitous situation.

In this album, Daniel Lanois becomes the disruptive figure, which is usually Brian Eno´s job as collaborator, with his very raw, vaporous and metallic/earthly pedal steel guitar counterpointing alongside Roger Eno´s piano brushes over the evocative, beautiful, obtuse, emotional and profound sonic environments imprinted by Brian Eno.

All three musicians share credits as composers, therefore each track beholds its own charm and identity.

**** PA´s stars.
