"Dayal's unique and fresh take, which also delves into Discreet Music
, is a must read for Eno fans and makes a great primer for the uninitiated."
"Dayal's lucid, elegant deconstruction of Brian Eno's most beguiling album is also an inspiring, delightful inquiry into the nature of creativity and constraint. Anyone interested in art making needs to read this."
—Ed Park, author of Personal Days
"...the best short introduction to Eno's work and ethos going."
