4 stars How many words a single note can say?

Eno is a strange artist... mostly a mechanic than a songwriterbut here is the force and the strenght of his music: a technician uses his tools to make something as good as he can, or talking about music Eno uses his synth and the electronic as an extension of his mind...

Listening it is a bit difficult, since the music here is made of long silence and few rapid notes, everything on the disc make the listener to feel something and I pass a lot of time listening to it to understand what every single note wanna say in the great emptyness, while every song here doesn't have a name all of them are born to be in some way a background of a film... well it's not wrong (since the ambient music is thought for this scope), but at many times (the intro in 1/2 and the central part of 1/1 especially) the tracks or better the sounds can be listened without saying that comes form a film!, even without any rythm and any word this is a good experiment and comes out like a strong disc, that give to the listener a strong feeling. 4/5 stars 0/1 bonus: since the ambience is fantastic, but no bonus since I don't have nothing to give more the music (and maybe this means that the disc is only the thing important)
