4 stars It's one of the many times that I've listened to a magnificent album. Still, this particular one, contains such beauty and magic, hard to find in any other similar album. Similar?, you'll ask. What's similar to Brian Eno's artistic way of thinking. A good question, though I've got the answer: When you close your eyes and think of angels chanting, that's Eno's music. If I had to think of one word that best describes this album's attitude, that would be 'mesmerizing'. This is a mesmerizing piece of ART; yes, art. Still, it's not flawless: 'Through Hollow Lands' doesn't add much, but this is the album's only weak point. I love the rest of it. Before you hate it, think of what the 80s would have sounded like, hadn't been for Eno; that is the man behind the sound of 'Heroes', 'Low', 'Lodger' and the one who wrote the track that gave birth to Joy Division: 'Third Uncle'. And what about this album? 'Backwater' is the first essential 80s track -listen to the keyboards, 'Spider And I' welcomes OMD to the music map and 'King's Lead Hat' is the earliest New Wave track I've listened to. I recommend it. Listen to it without prejudice and I'm sure you'll also find a piece of your self in it.
