News and Notes
Here Come the Warm Jets
This brilliant debut album is more pop than ambient, but the seeds of Eno's later sonic noodlings are evident nonetheless, especially in the gorgeous title track. Of course, it does seem a shame that he's forever abandoned the three-minute rock song, but perhaps, after giving us "Needle in the Camel's Eye," Eno felt that he'd already make his contribution to that form. In any case, just be thankful it's still in print -- this one is a classic.
