Brian Eno. Pop, as in Another Green World or Here Come the Warm Jets? Or total groundbreaking noise/ambience as in Music For Airports? In these works Eno is able to take one piano note and send it into oblivion via your earholes and brain for a subsequent effect that no drug, no sex, no physical stimulation could ever approximate. Then he uses drums and nearly familiar beats for his own ends and means and just when you think he is dabbling in familiar contemporary territory he adds his own spin and flavor and you realize exactly why he is Eno, and the definition of “talent”, or being “possessed” or however you want to define a certain uniqueness that is often copied in life, but never duplicated. No vocals, all instrumentals that vary from ambient to driving intense twisted electrorockness like only Eno could envision.

1) the subtle melody is there, so Eno, pretty keyboard/piano swallowed into the ether, signature stuff
2) dissonant guitar and trippy efx, but the piano sustain: echo, used in early ambient works steal the show as they did 30+ years ago
3) somewhat melodic, if minor, ambience
4) heavy drumming assault! Warning warning! Pounding tribal, with spooky swirling ambient tones as soundbed
5) pensive, driving, wall of weirdness, intense
6) weird looping industrial factory feel in sound bed with subtle tribal drumming, breaks into a driving rocking thing, holy fucking shit is this good!!!
7) almost comical dark ditty, would be fine as a spy movie intro
8) driving near jungle electro but Eno invents his own brand, its cool and driving but not pandering or obvious, far too sexy for that
9) tones of creepy weird world music a la David Byrne/My Life in the Bush of Ghosts creep in, rhythmic
10) dark, slow, creepy, nice bass that may be squashed by transmitter limiter/compressor
11) rather pretty, in a somewhat dark yet hopeful way
12) chill, dark, lush
13) simple piano melodies and Eno’esque treatments make this not so simple, brief, lovely, can slip in easily into any set at kzsu, “indie rock” noise classical doesn’t matter
14) pensive heartbeat bass with ambient swirls and creepy subliminal voices and pretty guitar up top
15) trippy, ambient, long with an even trippier out-tro
