5.0 out of 5 stars Pitter Patter
Sounds of falling metallic rain, hitting a soft roof landing, then running onto glass buildings. It then cascades off the tinted windows forming into running rivulets, finally joining together into water streams.

3.0 out of 5 stars OK, bit samey
I have a number of Brian Eno ambient albums and bought this on the back of them. It is OK, but quite not much variety. It is quite hypnotic due to the repetitive nature of the sounds.

Sounds of falling metallic rain, hitting a soft roof landing, then running onto glass buildings. It then cascades off the tinted windows forming into running rivulets, finally joining together into water streams.

Echoes of life, capturing a special moment, when, lucidity briefly appears, before then whisking away, in an about turn and marching into a pinpoint.

This is mood music, resonating with introspection, as it ensnares moments when the crack in the earth opens up, quickly reveals something, before disappearing, leaving you to put a name to it.

It does whatever you want, so if you have the time to let your mind drift and float, this will provide one crucial aid.

5.0 out of 5 stars Tranquility, 12 Sep 2006
This review is from: Day of Radiance (Audio CD)
Beautifully atmospheric pieces. 'Meditation 1' seems to be a reworking of some of the material Eno and Fripp covered in 'Evening Star'. It sounds even better played on the mallet instruments.

5.0 out of 5 stars True ambient music, 27 Jan 2001
By A Customer
This review is from: Day of Radiance (Audio CD)
From the first shimmering, vibrant tones of Laraaji's hammered dulcimer, aided and abetted by the consistently brilliant Brian Eno, this album ensnares the listener in an organic soundscape that shifts in fascinating patterns. Beautiful and sublime - recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Overlooked ambient masterwork, 8 Jun 2013
By 
Greg (Cambridge, England) - See all my reviews
This review is from: Day of Radiance (Audio CD)
What I've always loved about this album is that, while most ambient music (even in this series) is poignant, melancholy and introspective, this album is light, happy and radiant like virtually no other music. As such, it is a perfect companion to the rest of the Ambient set. Four extended pieces shimmer and float along - two rhythmic, two echoing and soft. Uplifting ambient music is so rare that this is highly recommended.

1.0 out of 5 stars monotonous and boring. Save your cash and buy Budd & Eno ..., 24 Oct 2014

I just don't get this one - 'elevator music' - trite, monotonous and boring. Save your cash and buy Budd & Eno 'The Pearl' and / or Matthew Floriantz's 'Electronic Forest' which are real gems and five-star plus!

1.0 out of 5 stars The worst ambient by Eno, 8 July 2011

This review is from: Day of Radiance (Audio CD)
This is a very dull record.
Brian Eno's inteligence should avoid certain errors. And I am a fan of his work since 1973! I know what I am talking about.
