Biography

“In the early seventies I found myself preferring film soundtracks to most other types of records. What drew me to them was their sensuality and unfinished-ness - in the absence of the film they invited you, the listener, to complete them in your mind. If you hadn't even seen the film, the music remained evocative - like the lingering perfume of somebody who's just left a room ... Read more in Amazon's Brian Eno Store

Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

In 1973, fed up with Bryan Ferry's domineering in Roxy Music, Eno leapt into a solo career that would find him championing the "art" in "artifice." This record is a who's who of the then-burgeoning English art-rock scene, featuring Robert Wyatt, Robert Fripp, and every member of Roxy Music except its leader (thus answering the musical question, "What if Eno had helmed the third Roxy record instead of Ferry?"). Warm Jets sports a lightheartedness that was a refreshing antidote to the pomposity of Yes and ELP on the dark side of art-rock's spectrum, with nonsensical, sound-based couplets such as "Oh headless chicken / How can those teeth stand so much kicking?" This debut is a milestone not just for Eno, but for all rocking music. Listen to Fripp's furious guitars on "Baby's On Fire" and "Blank Frank." It's incredible, Velvet Underground-inspired rock in a scene that had forgotten what rocking meant. --Gene Booth

Product Description

Eno departed Roxy Music in 1972 to record this amazing debut with the help of great Brit rock talents like Robert Fripp, Chris Spedding and Phil Manzanera. Includes such forward-thinking art rock touchstones as Needles in the Camel's Eye; Baby's on Fire; Driving Me Backwards and 7 more.

Format:Audio CD
"Here Comes the Warm Jets" announced Eno's intention from the first track; make groundbreaking, melodic music in the Roxy Music vein. The irony is that, for all intents and purposes, this was Eno's version of Roxy Music. If he were the lead vocalist, main songwriter in the band this is the material he'd be putting out there. It makes a great companion piece to Roxy's third album "Stranded". Ferry and Eno, in retrospect, compliment each other very, very well. As Ferry himself stated, he now wishes they had kept Eno and added Eddie Jobson. I couldn't agree more.

The improved sonics are the chief reason to pick this up. The detail is better, clarity is better (even on a cheap stereo) and the warmth and atmosphere of the original recording becomes evident from the first guitar chord. The packaging is another matter entirely. I like the digipak design but do wish that there were some comments from Eno and his band mates about the making of this classic album. The reproduction of the original artwork seems pretty darn close to the original vinyl version for the most part.

From the stuttering Robert Fripp guitar solo for "Baby's On Fire" to the odd chord progression of "Driving Me Backwards", every track manages to capture your attention. This is Eno's candy store and he's displaying all his sweet wares for the first time. Later albums would focus on other elements but here his talent burst forth in full flower.

Another minor complaint--where is "Seven Deadly Finns" and the material from Eno's only charting EP? It would have made a perfect addition to this album (even if it was released as a two disc set keeping the original albums intact and separate). It's a pity. Still, the DSD technique for transferring these priceless recordings captures the vibrant sound and impact of the original recordings without the sterile atmosphere of CD. Well worth picking up.

5.0 out of 5 stars the jets are still warm (hot, even) October 30, 2003
Format:Audio CD
Some Eno-fanatics may argue that this isn't Brian's best solo album. I'm not saying it is. I simply won't go there. I admire just about everything Eno's done, from Roxy to the solo stuff to the ambient, and beyond. I WILL say that I've been listening to this album for more than 20 years (hell, I'm playing it as I write this), and I remain stunned by its timeless ability to thrill and amaze. Yeah, it's "weird," and comes out of those hazy, crazy "Glam" days in the U.K of the early '70s. So it's not for everyone. And OK, maybe there is a Velvet Underground influence here. But nothing on this album sounds the least bit dated, 30 years on, and, Velvets notwithstanding, this is PURE ENO. The man has a sublime gift for melody, texture, rythmn, instrumentation, lyrics (absurd as they may be), electronics, and just plain VISION. This LP's got it all: proto-punk, grace, hard-core rock (Robert Fripp and Phil Manzanera's superb guitar), atmosphere, heartbreaking melodies. And it goes on from there. I can---no, I simply MUST---recommend "Warm Jets" for any rock fan with an open mind. I aim that comment especially towards those 20-year-olds out there who wouldn't think of going back to 1973 for a disc. Try it. You might love it. It might just open up a world to you.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wow!!! August 5, 2002
Format:Audio CD
I discovered this album about eight years after it's original release,purchasing it the year I got out of high school;it instantly became a favorite of mine and many friends. Warm Jets kick starts with Phil Manzanera's razor like rhythm guitar on "Needles In The Camel's Eye". "Baby's On Fire" features a ferocious guitar solo from Robert Fripp which some think is his best ever. "Driving Me Backwards" actually manages to sound like it's almost "backwards". Side 2 is more musically thematic with all the pieces seguing into one another. The transition from the dreamy "On Some Farraway Beach" to "Blank Frank" will jolt you out of your seat. This has got to be one of the top ten most essential albums of the 70's.

5.0 out of 5 stars Challenge your preconceptions and have fun, too. October 9, 1998
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This album stands as a testament to what a clever amateur, unfettered by traditional notions of song structure, popularity, or musicianship can do with a studio. It was far ahead of its time in 1973, and 25 years later, it still has the ability to challenge one's preconceptions about what music can be.
The lyrics are arch, adroit, and oblique. The songs' propulsively minimal skeletons support dense, compelling, and odd sonic textures that range from the airily ironic pop of Cindy Tells Me to the dessicated ululations of Driving Me Backwards.
The work is not without its blemishes. One may question a few of Eno's more self-indulgent compositional choices, like noisy drones or cacaphonous synth blurts that occasionally occlude more important elements -- viz. the lyric in the last verse of Some Of Them Are Old. But the warts never overshadow the stunning richness and creativity of the songs.
What strikes me most about this solo debut today is how, despite its well-studied strangeness, it remains great fun to listen to. Eno's enthusiasm, like that of a 3-year-old with her first box of 64 crayons, is infectious, and we cannot help but be entranced, even if his skies are salmon and he frequently colors outside the lines.

5.0 out of 5 stars Critical importance here May 20, 2003
Format:Audio CD
It was a long time ago,
When my older sister showed up with this album, she was still just a kid but she knew music (I'm still amazed to this day the albums she brought home in the early 70's it's a staggering list of classics) anyway my point is I couldn't have been maybe 11 but here she was jamming away to Eno's "Here come the warm jets" in many ways I grew up with this album and to this day certain moments of this album still have the power to hold me perfectly paralyzed in amazement and joy. The creativity displayed here will never be repeated, it can't be, it was a byproduct of a long since gone era. If you consider yourself a fan of early 70's music this CD cannot be excluded from any list of importance. I defy you to find me a record from 1973 that can be played to a new listener that gets the same reactions this CD gets; people are stunned by the quirky creativity and brilliance simply tossed around from track to track like it was nothing special. Usually when a musician comes across something especially unique he makes damn sure everybody notices but on this album song after song is just loaded with genius and oddity and each track just seems to top the next. A very special moment in time is represented here (A+)
