Biography

“In the early seventies I found myself preferring film soundtracks to most other types of records. What drew me to them was their sensuality and unfinished-ness - in the absence of the film they invited you, the listener, to complete them in your mind. If you hadn't even seen the film, the music remained evocative - like the lingering perfume of somebody who's just left a room ... Read more in Amazon's Brian Eno Store

If you have just stumbled across the now classic Eno Ambient series and were wondering which one to try, look no further. I own 10 Eno discs and to me this is the most evocative and engaging. The album created a feeling of growth and emergence right from the opening track, 'Lizard Point'.

Dunwich Beach, Autumn, 1960 is my favourite painting a picture of romantic, nostalgic euphoric recall from an event real or imaginary.

This disc is as engaging or as 'background' as you want it to be and to achieve that took real genius from Eno. Buy it.

After studying a music degree at University, I soon discovered that one of my lecturers had actually met Brian Eno on several occasions. "Whats he like?" - possibly the most unoriginal question that I could come up with at the graduation party. The response? "Well... He's nuts!".

Its something that has stuck with me as it ideally sums up the nature of being creative - being one of the 'crazy' ones who is not afraid to think out-the-box. Upon listening to Eno's work though, this won't always be apparent as a good majority of his catalogue makes for an easy, understandable pleasure of listening. And then we do indeed arrive at the crazy ones, just like 'On Land', Volume 4 of his Ambient series. From that first listen, the term 'Ambient' will immediately broaden your perception of how music can alter your perception of time and space. Some will often associate 'ambient' with New Age, but the wonderful thing about 'On Land' (and many other Eno albums) is that they preceded this era. They were, in all respects, the original works that broke new ground.

'On Land' is different to other favourites such as 'Apollo' and 'Music For Airports' in that it doesn't shape are narrative or story. For this reason, the listener is encouraged to deconstruct the quite amazing sounds present and reform them at their own will. At this point, the cover art to the album begins to make some sense. The lonely, sparsely-celled creatures are a part of a time and space that may or may not exist. Does Eno refer in his music to the evolution of Earth's creatures? Conversely, is he looking ahead into the future?

This is not an in-depth review of each track. It is merely a warning to those who may be expecting a pleasant ambient experience...

Ambient 4 is what is commonly referred to as "Dark Ambient". That is, the atmosphere and music is not "easy listening". There are tracks here which will unsettle you and make you feel uncomfortable. This album is not designed for you to chill out.

This may all sound very negative, but I'm only giving newcomers to Eno this warning as I imagine a lot of people expect Eno to be nothing more than "Music For Airports" style ethereal ambience.

Ambient 4 is my favourite of the series, and perhaps my favourite Eno album of all. I highly recommend it.

Just be ready to go to the dark side...

Like the man (top 10 reviewer) says, this is something special. This is Eno's finest example of ambient, which he invented. Rebelling against the music everywhere, the "used to sell strategy" enlisted by those wanting to sell us things we don't even know if we want. These sounds are not designed to wrap you in cotton wool but to enable you to take yourself somewhere. It's a trip without the side effects, put it on headphones or fill a room and just sit there. Each listen will be different, you will drift off and you will find yourself along some pathway that makes the sounds irrelevant. It is an aid to thinking.

Eno takes an ambient glimpse into times and places that must have significance for him. The pieces are of medium length--no 20-minute slow developing or short snippets. The times and places seem real and feel real--atmospheric yet dark with nostalgic overtones: Dunwich Beach 1960 evokes the images of a desolate Suffolk coastline--the music lives up to the titles. Not as integrated or focused as some Eno creations, but htis does not detract.

By Dr. Delvis Memphistopheles TOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 7 Dec. 2010
Format: Audio CD
Mood music aimed at those who want to delve within rather than just skim around on life's surface. A precusor to Lustmord who take a deeper step into the basement of personal horror, this drifts on currents and eddies into silent cataclysmic worlds. Alternatively the music is preparation for the final journey into an inner space. Similar to Vangelis work on Blade Runner for those in Time's Arrow making the journey backwards to the source of the innovation.

An offshoot of the Berlin period Bowie and the earlier Ambient Eno innovation where the Bowie side 2 plundered into a sonic short wave synth sine then dived into ice cold tundras of cumulative layers of isolation. These are much more febrile as the soundscape shimmers and ripples before beaming out silent echoes of memories and voices. There is a warmth to these pieces.

This launched a thousand copies of mood music usually purchased in tandem with packets of incense and a self help book based on NLP. Skip the middle men and place this in the CD slot, then count to 3 and recline into a more mature imaginary world.
