Editorial Reviews

From the recordings that produced Drums Between the Bells--the acclaimed collaboration between Brian Eno and British poet Rick Holland--comes an all new EP titled Panic Of Looking. The 6 tracks continue the exploration of how lyric & song-writing are perceived in the post-everything era. As the Sunday Times (UK) suggests, ''the poems aren't sung, yet the pieces are undeniably songlike, first because the music refuses to act simply as background, but lurches frequently, sometimes unexpected to the fore, and second because we hear the meaning of the words in the way we normally pick up song lyrics,'' while WIRED Magazine calls Eno's soundscapes, ''a tapestry of pillowy synths, minorkey melodies, chiming guitars and skittering drums.'' All of these elements come together for the November 8th release of the EP, which was produced by Eno and features his original artwork on vinyl and CD formats.

These six tracks appear to be outtakes from Drums Between The Bells and all are quite good. For further details regarding the original release, please see my review of that title. Previous to this release, one track, In The Future, was available as a bonus track on the Japanese-only, single CD release of Drums Between The Bells. It was not located at the end of the album like an outtake, but was inserted within the rest of the material making it relevant to the whole. It is nice to see it available here for Western ears to hear. As is always the case with Eno releases, there is a Japanese-only bonus track on Panic Of Looking too, in this case: This Climate, placed at the end as track 7. Since there was room for this track on the U.S. release, I give it 4-stars. Actually, the entire content of this EP would have fit on the full album, Drums Between The Bells, and should have been to begin with. Mr. Eno certainly knows how to spread out his tracks for the highest monetary return from his completist fans.

If you own Drums Between The Bells, be it the single CD release or the deluxe 2 CD issue, this 16-minute EP (20 minutes for the Japanese version) compliments those to perfection and should be considered essential. If you do not own it already, considering purchasing it before buying the EP.

I have the 2-CD version of Drums Between the Bells and I am glad to own the instrumental disk, which I think is more successful than the main CD. I'm not crazy about the execution of the spoken-word-over-music in Drums Between the Bells, in spite of the fact that I love Eno's work and I read, write, and edit poetry.

So, I was quite surprised that I like this little EP better than the main disk of Drums Between the Bells. The music works well and the vocals/poetry recitations just work better. If these are really outtakes from "Drums..." I'm really surprised they were, uh, taken out.

It's a bit pricey for 16 minutes, but I'd recommend this strongly for fans of Drums Between the Bells.

An EP set to the words of Rick Holland, perhaps outtakes from "Drums Between the Bells". Sweet little somewhat ambient pieces with spoken word, most notable for the participation of Irish R&B chanteuse Bronagh Gallagher, for whom Eno had produced a few tracks. I'm not real fond of the spoken word over Eno's tracks - there are a few that stand out on "Drums..." and one or two on this one - but they tend to be Eno's own spoken word and his daughter Darla's on this. Ms. Gallagher thick Irish accent is hard to take on her track. But I'm not going to argue with Mr. Eno's aesthetic decisions - they are always at least interesting and you know he's always going to move on to something else. This is a good purchase, despite it's unexpected brevity.

Brian Eno's new album brings something for old and new fans to look forward to with tracks like "In the Future". Brian Eno is the considered one of the major players in the category of Ambient Music. After leaving his band Roxy Music in the 1970s, Eno began to focus on a different type of music. He wanted to create music similar to environmental music, but he did not like the commercial aspects. After much thought on how to create a different soundscape, he came up with his first record Ambient Music in 1978 (Audio Culture). His idea came from how music was changing during the 70's to be used for our lives in a different way. He realized that he and his friends were looking for a particular type of music that could be used in a different way to go with their everyday lives that would be a continuous surrounding. This music would go with the ambience of their lives. It is a type of music that is meant to be played in the background for a variety of different situations.
This is the type of music Eno has been creating for years, but in 2011, Eno mixes things up with his new album Panic of Looking. One standout track from the album is "In the Future". It is a beautiful composition of Eno's ambient creation with renowned British poet Rick Holland narrating over the track. The combination brings the listener to a new world (in the future perhaps). The sound is almost melodic as Holland takes the listener to a sweet trance to a peaceful unknown world. The track elicits many of the aspects of Eno's earlier music, with ambient sounds that are perfect for playing in the background as well as building a mood for specific situations.
This track differs from much of Eno's earlier work however, because of the use of a human's voice.

I also like this short EP better than the main disk of Drums Between the Bells.

Also, can't explain it, because the words don't quite make sense to non-poets like me, but this EP gives an ominous impression, omens of a troublesome future.

[Not like Eno's older works from 30 - 35 years ago that were very comforting.]
