Driving me backwards.,
This review is from: Here Come The Warm Jets (Audio CD)
I've been listening to this album since the late '80s, when reasonably priced used vinyl copies were still relatively easy to come by (nobody was interested in Eno's "silly pop songs" back then, I seem to recall), & I'm still not bored with it.
Camp & sardonic, combining audacious bubblegum melodies with massed processing gadgetry, tape-loop trickery, snarling lyrical abstraction, & various nods to the then-contemporary avant garde (plus a little psychedelic doo-wop), ...Warm Jets is Eno's first masterpiece. A stunned Byron Ferrari must've tumbled out of his vintage Habitat Egg Chair when he first heard it... & so might you.
The wonderful "Cindy Tells Me" alone is worth a fiver, & it's not even the best track.
