One of the earliest (and best) examples of ambient music proper. This is ambient music in its purest form - beautifully ignorable, yet still very cerebral if you choose to pay close attention. Eno created an entire new branch of the music history tree with this album. I suggest taking the time to look up Eno's liner notes on this album online as you listen, as it gives you invaluable insight to the genius of this album.
This is Eno at his best.
Track one is so perfect that I've still never really assessed what I think about tracks two through four. They seem very nice but don't operate on the same level.
If you're definitely interested in hearing some really minimalistic music at its absolute "most minimal", then you need look no further than Brian Eno's "Music For Airports", which comes from his 1970's "Ambient" series.
Believe me, "Music For Airports" is such totally "ignorable" music that its only intent could be to induce a deep, meditative calm from the listener. In fact, this CD's completely hypnotic, repetitive sounds may even put one off to sleep in no time flat.
Born in 1948 - British composer and record producer, Brian Eno began his professional music career as a member of the early-1970's glam/art rock band, Roxy Music, which also included vocalist Bryan Ferry.
Over these many years Eno has worked with numerous performers and bands, such as - Genesis, David Bowie, U2, Talking Heads, Robert Fripp, and Laurie Anderson, to name but a few.
"Music For Airports" cover art was, indeed, painted by Brian Eno, himself.
