Created in a pre-digital world and somehow manages to be both creepy and funky at the same time.

Strange, but interesting music. If you're a fan of Brian Eno or David Byrne's music, check this one out.

Brilliant and inventive. Good to really listen to and great background music too. A great collaboration.

Wonderful sample driven pastiche heavily influenced by African music and inspired by the novel of the same name. Eno and Bryne are at their peak and this is virtually as good as Remain in Light. 18 track extended cd every bit as pleasurable listening as the original and maybe preferable as it includes tracks slated that were omitted due to legal issues over samples holding up the album's release and subsequent recordings replacing them. This would have sounded like nothing else at the time.

From Rhett
The most startling album to come out in the first half of the 80s. It's pure magic.

A strong album that is indeed a collection of jams and sound experiences.
Mea Culpa is the outstanding creation of the record.

Sonically the genius you'd expect from these two.

Recorded around the same time as Remain in Light - great tape-loop based music at the cutting edge of its time, complete with some weird vocal samples and world music. The Jezebel Spirit is a fave.

super interesting ideas. i really prefer byrne's hyperactive style to eno's slower, ambient kind of music. the first half i loved, the second half, less so
