Product Description

Product Description

LUX is one of Eno’s most ambitious works to date; it is a 75-minute composition in twelve sections that evolved from a work currently housed in the Great Gallery of the Palace of Venaria in Turin, Italy. The album is Eno's third for Warp, following Small Craft on a Milk Sea (with Jon Hopkins and Leo Abrahams) and Drums Between The Bells (with Rick Holland). Vinyl comes as double 180g DMM-cut LP in gatefold sleeve with 4 x 300x300mm prints and download redemption code card.

5.0 out of 5 stars A proper ambient record 12 Nov 2012
By Colin Mccartney TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
"Lux" is uncompromising Brian Eno. Hints of tunes, rather than actual tunes - the magic happens in the spaces in between. To me, this is archetypal ambient music. It exemplifies the genre that Eno himself helped to create. Unlike his last two albums for Warp, he makes no concessions to the "dance" audience. This record probably could have been recorded any time in the last 35 years and sounds completely timeless.

The gatefold card CD sleeve is also very good: as well packaged - without being over-packaged - as a CD can be, I think.

Run a bath, light some candles then put this on, pausing only to put your copy of "Ministry of Sound and Cream presents Pure Chillout Classics for Housewives" in the bin.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Master Returns 13 Nov 2012
By Amazon Customer TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:MP3 Download
There can be little doubt that where Brian Eno has led so many others have followed.
The use of electronics for Roxy Music at a time when 'pop' bands simply didn't experiment was groundbreaking in it's own right but Eno also took the early efforts of the 'Krautrock' bands like Neu, Can & Faust and turned the near tuneless, slowly evolving wall of sound into something epic.
In truth his recent efforts have been hit & miss but I have to say that 'Lux' is just a masterpiece.
Far more musical than most ambient releases tend to be of late. The likes of the Relaxed Machinery & Ultimae labels have gone for the more industrial & spaced out of late but Eno here brings a musicality to ambient that has been sorely missing for some time.
Recognisable moments of instrumentation & slowly evolving structure means that all four tracks are both clearly different & identifiable.
Needless to say the musicianship is peerless & Eno introduces an element of easy going lightness, not quite fun but a million miles from the heavy seriousness that has been on offer from the likes of Max Corbacho, Steve Roach, Mathias Grassow & others of their ilk of late. I've been turning to the shoegaze & motorik likes of Eat lights become light, Craig Padilla & Jeffery Koepper etc with their upbeat analogue works to get some e-music relief. What a relief to see Eno return to inject life into the Ambient scene with such an uplifting & musical album.
A new Eno release will always be of interest but this is something special.
Whether playing away in the background of an evening or when you've got some mates round or a 'serious session' with the lights off & the sound spreading wide before you this is a simply beautiful & cheerful release that is going to be played again & again without ever becoming stale.

5.0 out of 5 stars Eno at his ambient best! 12 Nov 2012
Format:Audio CD
I have been a fan of Eno for some thirty five years now and that is saying something! It was his ambient work that I most responded to and so this latest addition to his catalogue has been a long awaited joy. I was a little disappointed with "Small Craft On A Sea Of Milk" as it didn't seem much of a development. With this album however, Eno returns to his "Music For Thinking" theme and I have to say it is dammed good! Four pieces, all around the eighteen minute mark and all utterly beautiful. Some may say this is fairly predictable fodder for Eno, but the truth is that these pieces are some of the best ambient pieces he has come up with. On a par with "On Land" and "Thursday Afternoon" they are both quietly ignorable and beautifully engaging depending on the mood. If you like Eno's work you won't go wrong with this. In fact, it may well be his best wok to date.

Eno has come a long way from Roxy Music. Calming serene music. Have used this in a healing centre to good effect.

This CD is in the "tradition" of Neroli and Thursday Afternoon, which I love. It was good to get some new and different sounds after years of listeing to the previous CDs.

Long slow moving ambient, luvverrly.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Musical Map of the Heavens 8 Dec 2012
By Neil C
Format:Audio CD
The particular allusion which springs to mind when listening to this is that it could be a musical diagram of star systems - pointillistic spots of piano and processed guitar notes silhouetted against the subtle droning backdrop of infinite space like twilight constellations shimmering in the black sky.

This is music that is perfectly ambient by the standards of Eno himself - beautiful to listen to - beautiful to not quite (actively) listen to. Perfect 'space' music.

In terms of Eno's output, 'thinking music' just about sums it up - part if a line of releases stemming from Discreet Music and Music for Airports through to Thursday Afternoon and Neroli.

4.0 out of 5 stars Relaxing but Thoughtful 19 May 2013
By Martyn VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
The kind of music people could say was 'easy' or 'simple' but any kind of concentrated listening tells you this is very difficult to pull off without being boring, twee or any other of a hundred derogatory terms.

Beautifully tuned to our need for moments of quiet contemplation and simplicity in this busy world of ours.
