BRIAN ENO – The Ship (Warp)

Eno’s first solo release for four years is based on the sinking of the Titanic, and the resultant balance of hubris and paranoia that mankind experienced in it’s wake. ‘The Ship’ is a 21-minute ambient piece, of which Eno is the master, while the second half is the three-part ‘Fickle Sun’ suite, comprising a lengthy song, a short spoken word piece, and a cover of the VU’s ‘I’m Set Free’. It’s his best work in a while.
