Bryan Ferry: Another Time, Another Place; Eno: Here Come The Warm Jets

Richard Cromelin, Phonograph Record, August 1974

AS EXPECTED, Eno's first solo album is a sonically innovative and adventurous thing, boldly experimental in its employment of phasing, drones, repetition, shifting of layers, and so on. Yet for all his avant-garde leanings, it abounds with such mainstream virtues as variety, catchiness and entertainment value. And though he claims to be primarily a theoretician, Here Come The Warm Jets floods you with a decidedly non-intellectual approach, a playfulness that's a stark contrast to Bryan Ferry's second non-Roxy collection – a difficult and perversely fascinating affair.
