brian eno is so hot
Brian Eno hasn’t been hot since No New York. I resent him for his constant association with U2. He obviously has no /need/ for further money and accolades, so why the dreck? But this picture looks like it’s from Roxy Music or Here Come The Warm Jets… is it?
It’s gotta be from Roxy Music.
I don’t know why you’d resent him for producing U2. Ambient albums don’t exactly pay the bills, and it’s not as though his associations with a few mediocre bands have had an effect on his greatest works. And I’m not sure what you mean by “since No New York”, but if you’re referring to output quality… then we have a problem (if you’re referring to physical appearance then we’re cool).
I’m just saying that the “No New York” compilation was the last time he truly involved himself with the advancement of musical expression, I’m saying that since then he’s been more or less content with resting on his laurels. I don’t even resent him for producing /early/ U2 so much, (because, really, at the time who would’ve predicted they would decline to change their sound for the next 30 years?)
Maybe the David Byrne/Brian eno disc is good, but I haven’t been interested in David Byrne since “Remain In Light”… I find it hard to appreciate an artist /after/ they’ve allowed fame and success to encourage them to release consistantly poor and uninspired albums. “Remain In Light” is great though. (and “Music for Airports” is 1978, so /before/ No New York, at any rate)
if i could put it in 96 point font I would
and Thursday Afternoon is the purest form of what began in Music for Airports.
As for My Life In the Bush of Ghosts, check your prejudice at the door, friend. The music speaks for itself. If some band like Porcupine Tree suddenly made a groundbreaking new album, I’d be more than willing to ignore their past several releases.
