Brian Eno Curiosities Volume 1
- Words: Julia Chan
- Label: Opal
The godfather of ambient music, Brian Eno, delivers this compilation of lesser-known tracks that fit together precisely because they never fit in anywhere else. Beautiful, uncluttered melodies are shot through with ghostly noises and soft, padding basslines while Eno's love of rhythm shines through on tracks such as "Ambient Savage" and "Manila Envelope." Elsewhere, Eno's love of experimentation rears its head via a lovely organ solo on "My Lonely Organ" and sparse lyrical stylings on "Work/Wank"-pieces of music that don't quite fit together, but are nevertheless quite curious.
