Wrong Way Up (Reissue) set a high standard for Brian Eno's popular music oeuvre, and working with John Cale didn't hurt. This song isn't quite up to the watermark left by "Spinning Away" or "Empty Frame," but it's a nice sample taste of his album with Talking Head alum David Byrne.

I bought this album online when it was released. I've found this song, especially, to be everything I would have hoped for. A Brian Eno and David Byrne (Talking Heads) fan since 1978, I've waded through stuff like "No Pussyfooting", a Brian Eno/Robert Fripp collaboration that is three parts of an ambient/white noise migraine headache (I did like it one time but I just wasn't myself that night). I think this is good quality stuff, not their best alone/with others/together, but good quality.

This isn't the best Brian Eno or the best David Byrne I've heard, but here's the thing I get the song, and I sort of like it. The music is little bit euro dance pop, little melancholy that is a strange overtone, it sort of messes with you. Eno and Byrne actually both make great music, but I find the oddness of the track enjoyable.

You could sneak this in the middle of a "David Byrne" playist, and you would never realize that it wasn't the Talking Heads. I find myself listening to this song and liking it when it plays, yet I don't find myself seeking it out. The rhythm and percussion are quite enjoyable; however, the repetitive melody gets tedious.

this is one new pop song that I'm not ashamed to say I like.some may say that it's just Byrne/Eno trying to make bank by retreading old sounds, but hey--the song's GOOD!

I never played this game so I really cannot leave any comments regarding my opinion or experience with this download. I know that it was free though.
