ENO: TAKING TIGER MOUNTAIN (BY STRATEGY)
Someday, if it's not lost entirely, people are going to look back on this album as one of the sonic monuments, perhaps the most inspired and only really avant-garde work of its era. Hunt it down, quick, before it gets lost, and listen for the typewriters in China My China, as well as the lyrics, which are beautiful and even pity: From the pagoda / The world looks so tidy / Fate is on the horizon... Eno is a poet as well as a musical genius, and this is destined to be one of the great lost records.
