BRIAN ENO: SMALL CRAFT ON A MILK SEA
From melodic ambience to galloping sci-fi workouts.
Eno on Warp - cue spodfans' cold showers worldwide. Like most things conceptual, any shortcomings are compensated for in accompanying text. The press release mentions an intentional unfinishedness, so it's fair to say this soundtrack-style effort isn't a new Eno album proper. Things move from melodic ambience to galloping sci-fi workouts and back again, the highlight being the sublime Emerald And Stone. Am I actually allowed to criticise this? After all, Eno's a genius, Warp is religion and I'm a mediocre freelance journalist. But if this was by an unknown hopeful, how rated it would be?
