Brian Eno: “2 Forms of Anger”[audio:http://alarm-magazine.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/11/Brian_Eno_2_Forms_of_Anger.mp3|titles=Brian Eno: “2 Forms of Anger”]
Long credited as a pioneer of ambient music, Brian Eno is back with his first album in five years and his first for Warp Records.
Small Craft on a Milk Sea is a collection of 15 short, sullen instrumentals that achieve simultaneous beauty and creepiness. Pieces may build from a slight, elongated intonation or assemble more quickly, but something is always appearing, changing, or disappearing. Eno is credited for synthesizers, production, and (hard-to-discern) vocals, but the album couldn’t deliver greatness without co-conspirators Jon Hopkins and Leo Abrahams.
