Music For Films - Brian Eno

Advantages: gorgeous little vignettes of music, all with their own character
Disadvantages: only that some of pieces are too short

This collection of Eno tracks was recorded between 1975 and 1978 and first issued in 1978. The pieces were intended for films - hence, obviously, the title - and many have been used as such over the years. There is something very appealing about nearly ...

Certain streets have certain corners...

Advantages: Eno is ever creative
Disadvantages: but not as potent as usual.
