Eno's ambient innovations were in full flower when he met Fripp again on this 1975 LP. This is a meditative journey through calm seas and skies: Wind on Water; Evening Star; Evensong; Wind on Wind, and An Index of Metals. Still entrancing and enduringly influential!
Top customer reviews
"Wind on Water," which originally sounded more or less like solid chords, is revealed as an intricate network of looped sounds. "Evensong" likewise is exposed as having much greater depth than I ever suspected. As for "Evening Star," a piece of music so beautiful it seems as though it simply dropped out of heaven, it's even richer.
However, it is "An Index of Metals" that stands as a testament to the skill of Fripp and Heyworth. I've listened to this piece hundreds of times, and it never sounded like this. The depth, the clarity, and the dynamics that are present in this remastering are unparalleled in any remastered CD I've ever heard.
