Album of the Week: Brian Eno – Reflection

Brian Eno’s latest album is a pensive New Year’s gift for all people who love experimenting with musical collages. Single 54-minute track is a long, dark, melancholic, meditative, subtle. It’s something radically different from the most of what contemporary popular music has to offer. Maybe that’s why listening to it feels like something divine and sacred, even though it’s sunken into so much darkness. It’s not as varied as his last year’s The Ship, and may be seen as a little boring after a while, but when you’re in the right mood, it can be a blissful experience. Brian Eno’s Reflection is a melancholic river of sound that simultaneously flows with wonder and drama. It’s intense, subtle, sublime.
