Editorial Reviews

Brian Eno's second album collaboration with Dieter Moebius and Hans-Joachim Roedelius of Cluster consists of slow-moving instrumentals full of repeated synthesizer sound patterns and sustained guitar notes in the ambient style familiar from Eno's collaborations with Robert Fripp and albums of his own, such as Discreet Music. (One song, Broken Head, features recited vocals by Eno, and on another, The Belldog, he sings. On Tzima N'arki, his vocal is turned backwards).

2. The Belldog
3. Base & Apex
4. Tzimi N'arki
5. Luftschloss
6. Oil

This is the second and final lp for Eno and the German synth duo Cluster, and more so than "Cluster and Eno," this lp is a much more cohesive, yet no less strange, album.
Eno tends to be the more dominant force on this recording, going so far as singing on a few of these tracks, and the whole lp has a kind of "Before and After Science" feel to it, which is certainly not a bad thing.
Cluster would go on to make excellent lps after this point (not that they hadn't to that point), taking what they gained from Eno and putting it to good use. Eno would also take much from these meetings, and those influences do pop up on several lps he made after this one.
Both Eno and Cluster lps are essential listening and belong in your cd collection.

This is the companion work to "Cluster and Eno", and really should be taken in along with that wonderful work for maximum impact. Not that the absence of its tracks diminishes this release any, as this is definitely the stronger of the two albums. Cluster, at this point in time, was well into their near-classical approach to ambience, and pairing this with Eno's full-flowered approaches to atmospherics and complex arranging creates a masterpiece recording that has only improved with time. Description of what's going on in here is rather hard; it should just be sufficient to say that you should buy this CD if you have even the slightest interest in any of these artists, in ambient music, or electronics. An aside note: this was Eno's last lyrical effort for many years; he only found voice again on his collaboration with John Cale, "Wrong Way Up", over a decade later. When one listens to "The Belldog", though, it's clear why...what _does_ one sing about after creating such a work? A critical, essential album.

I consider this album to be the perfect soundtrack for the weird future we're going be be having. Hard to beleive it's twenty years old. It was before it's time then, it's before it's time now and will probably still be before it's time ten years from now. It combines odd little pop songs and glacial sonic landscapes.

This reissued CD "juggled" the original running order of the tracks as they appeared on the original LP, which detracted from the finished product. The original LP featured the Cluster-inspired tracks on side one, with the Eno tracks on side two. Indeed, the three Eno vocal pieces were the last three songs on the original release.

If you can afford it, and if it isn't too late by the time you are reading this as it is/was a limited edition of 1,500, get the mini-LP version recently released by Captain Trip records (still available at the time of this writing from Amazon). Not only does it restore the original running order of the songs, but perfectly reproduces the original album cover art. The sound was greatly improved too. The first album, Cluster & Eno is also still available in this format.

There is also one more album that features Eno, Moebius, Roedelius, and this particular case, Michael Rother, under the band name, Harmonia. The album is entitled Tracks & Traces, was recorded in 1976, and completes the trinity of Eno/Cluster collaborations.

Format: Audio CD
Both mysterious & otherworldly with all the songs being completly different yet somehow unified. The back image of the album says it all with Eno looking exhausted, like he has had to use every ounce of his immeasurable talent to keep up with Roedelius (who looks pensive & almost apologetic that the session has been so gruelling for Eno. Whilst Moebius appears incredibly calm & beyond exhausted as if creating musical masterpieces with other incredibly gifted composers is the only road for him.
The album is dark, scintillating and evocative & somehow reminds me of 'For your Pleasure' by Roxy Music as if Eno was wanting to revisit & further expand ideas from this also exceptional album. Both Broken Head & The Bell Dog have Brian Eno singing beautifully with inspired & thoughtful lyrics & as stated sound like an incredible extention of the most innovative tracks previously explored on For Your Pleasure. There are however elements of this album that are more like contemporary electronic classical compositions e.g Old Land, whilst another composition Tzima N'arki is rather funky and has almost African style chanting. Holger Czukay from Can plays bass on this track which underpins its rhythmic propolsion & the incredibly talented Conny Plank produced the album which explains the stellar & empathetic work he did (he was like the 3rd member of Cluster as he not only produced many of their albums but he also co wrote co authored & co played on various albums.
I attempted to play this at a wild party in 1978 when it first came out & the first song wasn't through when a group of bikies ignobly took it off the turntable & soon after i was thrown out of the party. High accolades, as they immediatly played some incredibly mindless repetitive boogie music.
