Product Description

Product Description

Eno's 1978 album fit in perfectly with the punk/new wave scene of the time, featuring such thrilling art rock songs as No One Receiving; Backwater; King's Lead Hat, and Here He Comes .

Amazon.ca

Before And After Science marque l'apogée d'un style qui a fait école. D'un côté Brian Eno s'est attelé à défricher l'ambient dès 1975 avec Discreet Music. De l'autre, avec Roxy Music tout d'abord, puis seul sur Here Come The Warm Jets et Taking Tiger Mountain (By Strategy) et ce disque, il invente un style, entre punk et new wave électronique, dont Bowie (sur la trilogie dite berlinoise) et les Talking Heads sauront retenir les leçons. Accompagné, entre autres, des batteurs de Genesis et Can, de Cluster, des guitaristes Fred Frith et Phil Manzanera et même d'une bande de la voix du poète sonore Kurt Schwitters, Brian Eno bouscule les habitudes du rock d'une gifle salutaire. Indémodable. --Philippe Robert --This text refers to an alternate Audio CD edition.

2 cents on the music: very good, very wonderful, very Eno. Unabashed pop (Backwater, Here He Comes) mixes with artier WTFs (Kurt's Rejoinder), nervous funk (No One Receiving), and spacier dreamscapes (Energy, Julie). I quite prefer the second half of this album, which in its textural bliss culminates in the gorgeous Spider and I, which is a fitting farewell to Eno's "vocal" era. As on his previous album Another Green World, Eno makes use of the deft rhythm battery of Phil Collins and Percy Jones, who were both playing in Brand X at the time. (And one of 'em was in Genesis, too, I think.) For all his talk about being a non-musician, blah blah blah, Eno knew the value of hiring top creative players, and he himself is no slouch at playing imaginative keyboards - listen to that almost orchestral buildup in Julie With. So, the music gets four stars from me, even if a couple of the tracks grate the nerves on occasion.
But if you're reading this, chances are you're wondering about the SOUND of these reissues. I had cassettes of these early Eno albums back in college, I had original CDs, I had the 1993 boxsets...and I figured this time out, we'd get the once-and-for-all, definitive, hi-quality editions we'd all been waiting for. And...er...well, it's nothing that drastic. These are not remasters, these are not remixes, these are "retransfers"; to my ears, this apparently means a wee bit more clarity, a wee bit higher CD master volume (but not much), and that's it. No doubt they sound better than the original CDs, but it's not much of an improvement over what was heard in the Vocal and Instrumental boxsets over a decade ago. And those were needing an upgrade, if you ask me.
The problem is in the original mixes.

Car music. Ride with this music. Or sit and burn candles. Or make spaghetti. Unlike his more backgroundy music this is music to move to as well. The thing is it is ESSENTIAL. You must have this album. And Another Green World. The album with John Cale - Wrong Way Up completes the triumverate. These three are must haves. Which is better? Impossible to say. Taking Tiger Mountain and Appllo ... also excellent. But get Before and After Science and decide which side is 'before'? Or just ride with it. Eno is great and this may be his greatest.

One of my favourite Eno albums, he has an ordinary voice that he uses to great advantage, This is completely the opposite to his ambient music. He gets right into it with No One Receiving Eno is really a super arranger of sounds much the same way one arranges sounds of an orchestra except without conventional instruements. This CD and Taking Tiger Mountain by Strategy are just so much fun. Top Marks.

"Before and After Science" represented Eno in peak form. It's mixture of art-rock songs and ambient instrumental passages marked a turning point for him as well; this would be the last solo album where he would sing for more than a decade. "No One Receiving" with its funky, lumpy bass line and it's odd melody immediately captures your attention. "King's Lead Hat" (an anagram for Talking Heads) reflected Eno's hope that he would be selected (which he was) to produce the band's albums. In fact, you can hear echoes of Eno on the trio of Heads albums he produced. While there's no denying David Bryne and the band's genius, it's clear that Eno had a huge impact as a producer on helping the band expand on their original sound.
"Spider and I" closes the album with one of Eno's most gentle melodies. It sounds almost like a lullaby and the gentle music could easily lull you to sleep. It helped set the stage for Eno's next stage where he devoted himself full time to developing ambient projects.
The remastered sound using the DSD system comes through with the vibrance and warmth one would expect from the album. While the previous edition of the album sounded very good, there's better clarity and depth evident in the recording on this edition even when listened to on a cheap stereo system. My only disappointment is the lack of thought put into the packaging. There's no liner notes, no lyrics and while the cardboard digipak is housed in a nice plastic container, the presentation inside is bare bones. We get the album credits and no more. While that reflects the original issue of the album on vinyl, it wouldn't have hurt to expand the packaging (and include a bonus track or two).

In this, which I believe to be his seminal vocal work, we are treated to searingly intelligent lyrical manipulation and groovy, catchy, but still mysteriously progressive instrumentation. "Backwater" recalls some of the lyrical style of Here Come The Warm Jets, but has an electric piano driven bass line that still hits you even after 25 years. I grew up listening to everything from Eno to Cream to the Clash and back again, and this album is easily in the top ten for me. Eno uses the foreshadowing of the album title in very subtle ways throughout the work, allowing you to relax and enjoy or stare avidly at the album cover as you seek to discover all the marvelous nuances in the music, even down to track order. Remember this was released BEFORE CD's, so it was an album, with a front and back side to it. That simple knowledge alone enhances the experience. If you don't have the whole album, and just downloaded a few songs, you can't truly appeciate it as the stylized work of art that it truly is. Better yet, purchase the LP and play it on your tube amp system for that wonderfully warm sound from the "Days before Digital"!!
