Dear all, This is intended to start a thread going song by song through the music of Brian Peter George St John le Baptiste de la Salle Eno. I won't go into detail about who Brian Eno is, but refer anyone interested to His Wikipedia Page. Brian Eno's career as a frequent collaborator and producer, and also a contributor to film soundtracks, makes it rather difficult to specify exactly what is a Brian Eno album and what isn't. My starting list of albums is just that - a starting list. It will inevitably grow, and there will be other releases, occasional singles, and rare tracks added to it. Taking a leaf from other song by song threads, at first this thread will focus mainly on albums solely contributed to Brian Eno that had clear releases, and major collaborations. If the thread gains traction and lasts then it can continue to cover less clearly 'Brian Eno' releases. The initial list of albums and songs intended to be covered are: 1. No Pussyfooting 2. Here Come the Warm Jets 3. June 1, 1974 4. Taking Tiger Mountain (By Strategy) 5. Another Green World 6. Discreet Music 7. Evening Star 8. 801 Live 9. Before and After Science 10. Cluster & Eno 11. Ambient 1: Music for Airports 12. Music for Films 13. In a Land of Clear Colours 14. After the Heat 15. Ambient 2: The Plateaux of Mirror 16. Fourth World, Vol. 1: Possible Musics 17. Remain in Light 18. Wrong Way Up 19. My Life in the Bush of Ghosts 20. Ambient 4 (On Land) 21. Apollo 22. Music for Films Volume 2 23. The Pearl 24. Hybrid 25. Thursday Afternoon 26. Music for Films III 27. Textures 28. My Squelchy Life 29. Nerve Net 30. The Shutov Assembly 31. Neroli 32. Headcandy 33. Wah Wah 34. Original Soundtracks I 35. Spinner 36. Extracts From Music for White Cube 37. The Drop 38. Tracks and Traces 39. A Year 40. I Dormienti 41. Lightness: Music for the Marble Palace – The State Russian Museum, St. Petersburg 42. Kite Stories 43. Smart 44. Music for Onmyo-Ji 45. Music for Civic Recovery Centre 46. Drawn from Life 47. All Saints 48. Compact Forest Proposal 49. Long Now 50. Curiosities Volume 1 51. January 07003: Bell Studies for the Clock of the Long Now 52. Curiosities Volume 2 53. The Equatorial Stars 54. Another Day on Earth 55. 77 Million 56. Everything That Happens Will Happen Today 57. Beyond Even (a.k.a. The Cotswold Gnomes) 58. Small Craft on a Milk Sea 59. Making Space 60. Drums Between the Bells 61. Panic of Looking 62. Lux 63. High Life 64. Someday World 65. The Ship 66. Reflection 67. Finding Shore 68. Music from Installations 69. Mixing Colours 70. Dokument #2 71. Luminous 72. Rams Notably missing from the above are video releases and various 'other things'. These can be added if the thread achieves traction. The style will be to cover the songs on the album one by one, and then have a day to discuss the album as a whole. There will then be a rest/catchup day, before progressing with the next album. The 'traditional' track listings for the albums will be used, and any additional/bonus tracks can be discussed on days allocated to discussing the album as a whole or rest/catchup-days. If this thread gathers steam and there are requests to allocate more time to bonus tracks etc., then this can be discussed. I will post regular updates on which songs are discussed on which days. I most certainly don't claim to be any super-expert or completist collector of Brian Eno's music. I'll rely on the standard online sources for material and to be able to listen to albums I don't own myself. I've searched for previous Brian Eno song by song threads, and I haven't found any. If there has been one that I missed, then please tell me. The most important thing for a thread like this is that a group of people interested in participating forms. I'll post this today, and if we get at least a few people indicating interest in participating, then we'll start discussing No Pussyfooting on Friday the 5th of November. So, it's a number of days before we start. If people are interested in participating, then please post to this thread. This will let me know that people are interested, and also bump the thread so that other people can see it. You are welcome to rate songs and albums out of 5, and if people do, I'll collect the votes and post statistics. Everybody is free to use their own rating system, but mine is: 1=appalling 2=bad 3=good 4=excellent 5=absolute classic There's no need to use my scale - as long as people voting consistently use their own scale then we will be able to compare votes for songs and albums. It's likely that the list of albums above will be edited and enhanced as time goes on. OK, I've made my Brian Eno flag. Now I need to run it up the flagpole and see if anyone salutes. Here goes the warm jets^H^H^H^H^H^H^H^H^H^H^H^H^Hnothing.
