ENO/HYDE: SOMEDAY WORLD
Brian Eno's latest collaboration arose from his having a surfeit of beginnings to which Underworld's Karl Hyde could provide the conclusions, or the next steps in a back-and-forth of accretion and subtraction. Eno likens the results to the way houses adapt to hillsides, taking whatever route necessary to stay up - in the case of When I Built This World, coming perilously close to techno-jazz-fusion, in Witness to the fizzing improv of The Velvets' Sister Ray. The Satellites opens the album with tart trumpets over staccato guitars, To Us All closes it with an oceanic excursion. In between are liquid pools of guitar and chattering keyboards, and in the lovely Daddy's Car, the excitement of discovery with your dad, "way up on his shoulders and loving the thrill of it".
