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

3.0 out of 5 stars A review. 29 Oct 2004
Format:Audio CD
This isn't a bad album, but it just doesn't to it for me. For my ears this type of more uptempo, metallic sounding music (I'm comparing it with his work upto this point)that often relies heavily on sampled & programmed breaks, needs those breaks to be rock solid & for me they aren't (in my opinion he got better at that sort of thing in time for "Outside" with David Bowie). It could also stand some analog richness/dirtying up for my taste, perhaps with the use of valve compressors...
If you're an Eno fan then check it out, but I wouldn't risk paying lots for the privilege.
If you're new to his work I would strongly recommend checking any of the following first:
"My Life in the Bush of Ghosts",
"Before & After Science",
"Ambient 4: On Land",
"Another Green World",
"After the Heat"(with Moebius&Rodelius - the 20bit remastered Japanese version is well worth snapping up whilst it's still available),
"Low" (with David Bowie).
There's plenty of other high quality material by Mr Eno around, but I find the above to be the most consistently wonderful LPs.
Enjoy :~)

5.0 out of 5 stars A bit of a classic! 31 July 2011
Format:Audio CD
It took me a little time to get into this when it came out. Now it is a firm favourite. This is still a fairly radical listen and sounds like no other Eno album of that era. Fractal Zoom, My Squelchy Life ( the original title for the album) The Roil, The Chock, are all superb stuff, but both versions of The Web are the real high points of the album.

4.0 out of 5 stars well worth revisiting 2 May 2006
Format:Audio CD
1992 and our favourite cerebral oddball was back on the contemporary scene after ten years of producing everybody else's material. Like most of his output, it doesn't really sound like anything from the period except for the EMF drum loop on Ali Click. Still inventive as ever, it's great to hear our man ready at the morse tapper, masking his libidinous monologues with a vocoder or doing his Dad Rap routine. For you drummers/sound engineering enthusiasts out there, behold some of the most bizarrely produced drum sounds ever recorded!

5.0 out of 5 stars Eno has it still... 20 Nov 2002
Format:Audio CD
Like a lot of artists of a certain age Eno's back catalogue is seen as his best work, not so with this back to form 1992 release.

"Nerve Net" is back to his creative best pushing the music envelope to the max, Beats are played against the sublime guitar playing of "Robert Fripp" on several tracks to bring the listener both atmosphere and sound textures that sound both contemporary and inviting to the ear, if you are a "Eno" or "music" fan ignore this at your pearl, it belongs in your collection today...

5.0 out of 5 stars Eno at his best. 7 Nov 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This is it , the ENO album that explores music , melody and beyond.
Fripp's guitar is simply phenomenal. If there is a ENO CD that has
it all , this is the one , miss it and be sure that you are missing one of
ENO's best .
