"this album changes the flow of personal time... A meditative, expansive world unfolds with no limits on the imagination." -- CD Baby
Eno's bells do things physical bells never could, like . . .resurrecting the Tsar Kolokol III, which cracked before it could ring. -- The New York Times (Playlist, Aug 24th 2003)

My bias is that I'm a friend of Brian's and have been around for the two years of research and composition that went into the CD. Furthermore all proceeds from sales goes to The Long Now Foundation, where I'm president. The foundation is building the 10,000-year mountain Clock for which Brian created his bell sounds.
Listening to the CD, found myself distracted by the slightest thing yet, when my attention was focused, the material is wonderfully beautiful. I think my biggest reason for purchasing this frighteningly expensive disc is that the proceeds go to support the Clock of the Long Now foundation. Their efforts are, in my humble estimation, very important.
If you're new to Eno, this is not the place to start. If you're an avid fan, you might feel compelled to have this disc in your collection. For me, in the context of his other works, this felt, somehow, unimportant.

I love all things Eno. This album is interesting like a how to manual is interesting, as opposed to how an abstract painting is interesting, so it doesn't rate a 5 star from me. Read morePublished 6 months ago by Art Hansen
Unique even by Eno's standards. Over an hour of soothing ambient treated bells but not as boring as my description.Published 7 months ago by Lee Wrecker
This is my favourite Eno album actually. It is indeed rather different from many of his other works, but the music is wonderful and evokes an image of a very interesting clock... Read morePublished on August 13, 2012 by B. Slade
This CD is outstanding and very nice to fall asleep to. Been a fan of Mr. Eno for quite some time. This almost sounds like a sparse Ambient 4. Tis a bit pricey but well worth it.Published on July 20, 2011 by KingsLeadHat

At once haunting and pleasant. Invigorating and comtemplative, the ideas behind the pieces are thick with math and logic, and some are trimmed with humor. Read morePublished on June 24, 2008 by Ben Doran
this is a profound study about bell sounds. not like eno's another ambient alubums. nelori might be in a similar line.Published on March 10, 2007 by Takahiro Nishi
Very niche work, but one of a kind. Hard to explain, if you like reflective music/sounds, give it a try. Plus it benefits the Long Now Foundation (look it up).Published on March 26, 2006 by J. Doody
