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.

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.

I remember discovering the quite beauty of Maryland's rolling hills and winding roads.We had this Cd playing in the car and it seemed to be the perfect guide, letting us see details we probably would have missed otherswise. Unfortunately I did not take videos of all the scenic drives that we had been blessed to see - I have about 40 favorites in New England, New York, Pa and Virginia.
But anyway thanks to the miracle of HD YouTube videos I can re-ride many of these drives in the comfort of my living room again and again.And what I do is turn off the volume of the videos and
watch them with this Cd as the accompanying background music. What happens is amazing since both complement and reinforce each other's beauty.This is one of the three CDs that is prefection itself
for watching the splendors of a nostalgically beautiful highway or road unfold before you. The other two are Harold Budd- Brian Eno collabarative masterpiece Cds , Plateau of Mirror and The Pearl.
I think I love ambient music because it so corresponds aurally to nature's visual images. As beautiful as scenery can get, a masterfully crafted ambient piece enhances the splendor still more.
When Eno composed his legendary Apollo CD he was trying with all his genius to capture the elegant otherness and vastness of outer space and look how famously he succeeded. These other Cds seemed
to have been created to tease out still further the quiet splendor of scenic drives with their shadow dappled roads and peaceful cloud studded blue skies. These Cds are just as effective watching
color slides or still images but for some reason the slowly moving image cannot be surpassed.

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.
