4 stars The last in line of Eno art-rock albums, this release is easy accessible and experimental at the same time. I can understand some don't like it because of openly pop-oriented rhythms and songs structure.

But this album sound like this only from very surface. In real it is a great art to make melodic, attractive music and add such amount of unusual and experimental moments under the skin! Possibly, first impression when listening this album is it sounds a bit similar to Roxy Music,some earlier Eno works and Talking Heads at the same time. Nothing strange - besides of Eno, there are collaborated such significant sound owners as bassists Percy Jones and Bill MacCormick, guitarists Phil Manzanera,Fred Frith and Robert Fripp, drummers Phil Collins (think about Brand X,not Genesis) and Jaki Liebezeit, German electronics masters Hans- Joachim Roedelius and Dieter Moebius between others.

For me this album is kind of missing link between early Roxy Music and Talking Heads, but turned on very experimental direction. Fans of both bands, as well as Eno rock album lovers will obviously find many interesting music there.
