4.0 out of 5 stars Recalling Winter February 14, 2006
By ~/~
Format:Audio CD
With atmospheric treatments provided by brother Brian, "Voices" is a lovely album that merits positive comparison to works by Harold Budd. As other reviewers have noted, it has a very similar feel to the ambient classic "The Pearl". It is a bit different however, a little less abstract perhaps. I've been listening to this album for about 20 years now and it definitely holds up.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Great Debut February 29, 2000
Format:Audio CD
I believe this was R. Eno's first album and it is, along with "Between Tides," (which for some reason is hard to find) his most successful. "Voices" has a lot in common with the Eno/Budd classics "The Pearl" and "Plateaux of Mirror" (the latter of which is also puzzingly hard to find), but is more literal, less moody. A listener will find that, much like Brian Eno's work, the compositions adapt well to a variety of moods and landscapes. The album's chameleon-like quality makes it as relevant now as when it first came out. Later R. Eno would descend miserably into New Agey "chamber music," but has recently surfaced from that muck with "Damage," an album also worthy of investigation.

3.0 out of 5 stars A Mixed Response June 12, 2000
By Looper
Format:Audio CD
This, Roger Eno's first solo album, gets a mixed response from me. A few of the tracks, such as "Through The Blue" and "The Old Dance" stand out as some of my all-time favorites. But why do "Voices" and "The Day After" seem to sound just the same? And is it mere coincidence that "Recalling" and "A Place" use the same Left-Hand piano chord pattern? This is an Album that has to be included in the Canon of R. Eno's greatest works, but it also seems more like a vehicle for Brian Eno's "Treatments" than a Roger Eno solo debut.

5.0 out of 5 stars A wonderful album! July 4, 2007
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
"Voices" is an album of meditative piano pieces by Roger Eno with treatments by his brother Brian. It's very reminiscent of the Eno/Budd collaborations "The Plateaux of Mirrors" and "The Pearl", and like those works, it's music that can either be listened to seriously or just played at low volume in the background. In other words, it's "as ignorable as it is listenable". If you're an ambient music fan, you owe it to yourself to get this album.
