The Air Is Still and the Light Is Cool #20

(An exercise-session selection so enveloping I couldn’t keep track of my reps.)

Brian Eno, Taking Tiger Mountain (By Strategy) (Island, 1975 — E.G. reissue, 2004)

Is this a rock and roll record? No, but how many orbits does it cross? How many times can Eno set up an atmosphere, prattle without getting you too concerned about the story and then seduce you with racket or hypno-beats? Ten times, maybe? This track seems to be about sex and this one an army adventure perhaps, but what do you need after “Burning Airlines Give You So Much More”? Wait — tell me again, what is Alice’s Adventures In Wonderland about?
