Nerve Net - Brian Eno

   1 review  -  1041 views
    Nerve Net is the twelfth solo studio album by British musician Brian Eno. It marked a return to more rock-oriented material, mixed with heavily syncopated rhythms, experimental electronic compositions and an occasional touch of jazz. The ambient sensibility is still present on several tracks, though it is often darker and moodier than the pieces Eno is best known for.

    Cover from 'Geological Cinema' an installation by Brian Eno, 1992.

I felt this album was lacking when it came out in 1992, and even more so when I listen to it now. For me, its lacks all the things that make Brian Eno and many of the musicians on this album special. The compositions feel uninspired. The synth programming is boring and redundant. The production sounds muddy and flat. Maybe it is just me, but I'm not sure I would even recognize this as Eno's work if I wasn't told.
