Title: Upcoming reissues of 4 Eno 90s albums with bonus material
Post by: ffcal on October 23, 2014, 07:37:13 PM
For those who can't get enough of Mr. Eno.  The bonus disc for Nerve Net is the unreleased My Squelchy Life.  There is also a longform bonus disc for Neroli that sounds promising:

I'm reading a lot of people I know here. I will take the knowledge that I have read this application in my life.

Bought Neroli and Shutov at Amoeba last night.  I will post my thoughts on bonus discs after a few listens.  The packaging on these is nice--digipak size hardbound book with nice photos, interviews, essays, etc.  My only complaint is the paper sleeves used to house the discs.  All four CDs were scratched at assembly plant from scraping the disc in thin paper slots.  Maybe some people don't care but I don't feel good about paying $20 for a damaged "new" product!  Grrrrrrr....

A short review of the bonus discs for Neroli and Shutov Assembly:

Neroli:  Disc 2 is a single long-Form track called New Space Music.  This is a thick, bassy, droney piece which ebbs and recedes.  It's ok but nothing essential for ambient fans.  It actually sounds a lot like some of Celer's stuff.

The Shutov Assembly:  Disc 2 is not what I was expecting so buyer beware.  Music was created during the same period but save for two of the seven tracks, the music is strange and rhythmic instead of drifting and ambient.  If you hoped to get more like Shutov tracks you will be disappointed.

These reissues did remind me how good the original albums are.  I would probably recommend to keep your original CDs and save your money, unless you are a completist or collector.

Thanks for the tip, Drone On.  I've ordered Neroli double CD from All Saints, so it's too late for me on that one, but I'll probably pass on the Shutov reissue.

Clark has posted a 34 minute mix featuring music from all 8 discs.  Nice.
