#428: Here Come the Warm Jets by Brian Eno

2.28.2011


Here Come the Warm Jets by Brian Eno (1974)

Favorite Track(s): "Needles in the Camel's Eye" and "Baby's On Fire" and "On Some Faraway Beach" and "Dead Finks Don't Talk" and "Some of Them Are Old"

Thoughts: I didn't know Brian Eno had been in Roxy Music! I also didn't know Roxy Music existed until I saw an episode of How I Met Your Mother featuring "Mother of Pearl." Oops! Feel free to judge me now. And for years I confused Brian Eno with former Beatles manager Brian Epstein. These things happen.

This album felt fairly experimental, but in the 'ah, that's interesting' way as opposed to the 'someone save me from this TALENTLESS WRETCH' way that we've sometimes come across on this list. I'M LOOKING AT YOU, PUBLIC IMAGE LTD. However, we've long since past the point on this list when 'gee, that was cool' music should be above 'I WILL NEVER BE THE SAME AFTER HEARING THIS' music. So...I didn't not like it, I'm just perturbed at its place on the list.

The album name makes me think of hot tubs.
