Re-up of my favorite Eno ambient album. It was missing a track earlier, and that has been rectified! Also, you can find Eno’s AMBIENT I-IV HERE! -Ian!
An exquisite experiment, Apollo takes Brian Eno’s spacescapes from albums like Another Green World and arranges them with some heavenly pedal steel guitar by Daniel Lanois. The recording engulfs the listener and captures the feel of space travel, weightlessness, and other sensations vividly. It’s also perhaps Eno’s warmest record ever. In the end, it comes off sounding not unlike a Grateful Dead experiment, with Lanois’ lazy pedal steel sounding quite similar to Jerry Garcia’s playing on David Crosby’s “Laughing.” An excellent nighttime vehicle.
