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 .
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 out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

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.Read more ›
"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).
