“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

5.0 out of 5 stars This is Good.. No.... This is amazing..... 15 Mar 2005
Format:Audio CD
Back in 2002 I, on the cusp of a 2 week holiday in Cornwall, I was introduced to Brian Eno. A fan of ambient music up until this point, Eno was simply in a league of his own, as I soon discovered.
I played this album whilst walking around the coast and along the beach, and the sound was powerful. Not because of Eno's use of the instruments and production, but the space he leaves for you to fill in. And its that, that makes Eno the true Ambient master, and a genre which he has pretty much defined.
I could write pages on this album, and his other ambient work, but its an album for you to take, and make your own.
Simply: Its Beautiful, Its Therapeutic, And you can own it.

5.0 out of 5 stars For The Film of Your Life 29 Jun 2007
Format:Audio CD
I was pretentious enough as a teenager to make this the soundtrack to my alienation. I listened to it on headphones on lunchbreaks.

Years later, it stands up as an album of incredible breadth and emotion, from the heartbreaking descents of Sparrowfall to the paranoid isolation of M386 and A Measured Room.

There is nothing on Music For Films that isn't fully formed and worthy of inclusion. Among Eno's masterpieces, this is perhaps the most neglected and best realised.

5.0 out of 5 stars gentle music for gentle people 11 Oct 2001
Format:Audio CD
If you have heard of 'ambient' music and are wondering about buying an album, look no further. relaxing, easily listenable and along with Music For Films II a great collection of pieces. Amateur or professional film directors look no further for some decent background music. To paraphrase a well known advert, 'it does what it says on the cover'. Turn on, tune in, drop out (for forty odd minutes anyway!).

4.0 out of 5 stars interlude rather thanambience 28 Sep 2010
Format:Audio CD
More interlude than full ambiance, The pieces are shorter and more instrument based but still with the hypnotic feel of the ambient series. Shorter more sketch like, some tracks you want to be longer but that's because they are great, interesting short ideas. A compilation more than an album. Good stuff. Track one is brilliant.

5.0 out of 5 stars Cinema Verite indeed 16 Aug 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This CD re-release has slightly different otrack order to the original vinyl--but this has no effect on the whole. Eno does what the title says--these are atmospheric snippets that conjure up the scenes just as they are titled--every bit as effective as the long pieces. Taking one example: Events in Dense Fog is a 3.43 hop into a mystery. Some of the tracks have a sinister film noir feel; others have a sort of floating feel. This is the best of Eno's film series and as good and essential as the classic Eno era 1975 to 1983.

4.0 out of 5 stars Acoustic short stories 26 Mar 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I wouldn't recommend this as an introduction to Brian Eno's work. This is his sixth album I've purchased, which on reflection is probably about the right stage.

Music for films has the same feel as a book of short stories, with some more experimental than others. There's no particular flow to the album, you could shuffle most of it without changing your experience. Some of the tracks are very strong and have been a great addition to my own collection, I particularly appreciated Aragon and Final Sunset. Others felt a bit less relevant in parts, although I still enjoyed the chance to hear different ideas being tried out in such a public way. Or was the idea to play a trick on your mind, each track reminding you of a film you've never seen? That's what I like most of Brian Eno's work - you interpret it in your own way - and that way can change over time with you.

I'm glad I bought the album, just don't make it your first.
