Do I really have to sell you on these? I didn’t think so. Get ’em if you ever got anything here or ever plan to. They’re all the Virgin/Astralwerks remasters, and they did a pretty good job to my ear. Also, if you’re looking for his ambient albums, I uploaded them here and here and some other places I think.
HERE COME THE WARM JETS (1974)
TAKING TIGER MOUNTAIN (BY STRATEGY) (1975)
ANOTHER GREEN WORLD (1975)
BEFORE AND AFTER SCIENCE (1977)
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.

Thought I’d organize these a little. They were spread out over the blog at different bitrates and stuff.
I don’t really need to sell you on these, do I? If you have never heard these, get I and IV. These are of course mindblowing, but my favorite of all Eno’s ambient stuff is APOLLO: ATMOSPHERES AND SOUNDTRACKS. Check that out, too!
