    I love Brian Eno. His work in the 1970s is pretty much essential from the stuff he did with Roxy Music, Robert Fripp, David Bowie, Devo, and his solo work. The man is brilliant though I think he needs to get away from Coldplay.

    Brian Eno

    Random observation about eno/reznor intersections.

    "Crystal Japan" (a warm place) was co-written by eno.

    "I'm afraid of Americans" was co-written by eno during the "outside" sessions but didn't make the cut and ended up being reworked for "earthling" (and remixed by reznor).

    Are there any closer connections?

    Can you imagine Reznor and eno working together? My first instinct would be no, since eno is fairly avante garde with production and reznor so hands on, I couldn't imagine them gelling. On the other hand if reznor took a bit of a back seat on HTDA (relatively speaking. Did he?) perhaps he'd be open to ideas.

    it wasn't. while it's RUMOURED to be a lodger outtake, all sources state it was recorded around and slated for scary monsters with writing credits only to bowie on that song. the melody was cribbed for sure, but it wasn't eno's track.

    the closest and only direct eno connections are the writing credits for 'i'm afraid of americans' (as you mention) and co-writing credits as well for 'heart's filthy lesson' from outside, which eno produced.

    I thought it was a Low out-take. I got confused reading http://www.teenagewildlife.com/Albums/L/Title.html "All Saints (3:35) Previously unreleased track recorded 1976-79 Bowie, Eno: instruments" and conflating the song and the album of the same name.

    So I've just checked my "All Saints" CD and it is indeed only credited to Bowie (and discogs agrees)

    Another Reznor/Eno intersection: Eno produced "How to Dismantle an Atomic Bomb", "Vertigo" was a single from that album and Reznor remixed it.

    Brian Eno won me over with the records he produced for Bowie: Low, "Heroes", Lodger, Outside, etc.


    And I feel like an idiot for never checking his stuff out afterwards.

    ANOTHER Eno/Hyde album due in July, "High Life"

    Preorder gets you one track now which I think you can stream elsewhere, DBF

    Vinyl and CD releases have one unique track each

    Seems the focus for this release is less poppy, with (much) longer track lengths.

    "DBF" is really good. Looking forward to more stuff in that vein. I wasn't too enthralled with Someday World. It was pleasant, but I was expecting something more transcendent from a collaboration between 2 of my long-time favourite artists.

    Yeah it didn't blow me away either. Looking forward to listening to DBF (posted it but hadn't listened yet!)

    Lol, Neroli, too? Does it make a difference to just having disc 1 on repeat?

    Looks great. I've sent in a Q to find out whether the download cards in the vinyls get you the second CD contents too. Suspect not though.

    Too bad none of this stuff is in 5.1. I'd love a surround mix of Thursday Afternoon.

    Just came to post this. Reminds me of a Greg Egan novel (Quarantine probably) 30 quid though!

    Edit: I wonder if the LP version (which is two records) has differences to the digital version around the transitions?

    I've been interested in how this is. I have the 'Bloom' app he developed for iOS that does similar stuff. Got some use out of that for a bit, then forgot about it.

    $39.99 is pretty steep--I see the price has now gone down in the US Apple Store to $30.00. Tempted to check it out. I thought the Reflection release he put out was just fine.

    OK it's out, I've been (erm) evaluating it, and I like it. A lot. So I want to drop for it. 55 for the CD box sounds reasonable price-wise. But, hm. I really think the Vinyl edition is significantly nicer. I'm trying to buy less vinyl these days because a lot of it I never play, or play rarely; but I can see myself spinning these. And the larger format booklet should let the art it demonstrates shine. But 3x the price is hard to swallow. I'm totally stuck on deciding...

    "Hallo Spaceboy" is a song by David Bowie from his 1995 album Outside. Bowie and Brian Eno co-wrote the original album version of the song. Bowie wrote the song in mostly-improvised sessions with his band in 1995, and intentionally wrote it with a Nine Inch Nails-like vibe.
