It was a positively transcendental moment listening to this pressing fresh out of the clingwrap. I have had a copy of this album in it's standard vinyl form for good many years. When I noticed the series of half speed masters had been released, I took a punt, and it was as though I was experiencing it as an entirely new album. I wish all my vinyl would sound this good.

Sounds awesome. Flat, deep black vinyl. It's not easy to do ambient on vinyl -- any noise can really get in the way. But somehow they did it right with this one. Artwork is perfect, though I kind of wish it came with the "ON LAND" commentary that original copies did.

My favourite ambient album!

Sounds great, nice thick vinyl. Little surface noise. Haven't compared it to the half-speed version but didn't really want a copy split over four sides at 45rpm.

Once again, Mr Showell has done a fine job on the remaster, unpacking the strands of the music a little, but not too much. It sounds clearer and more spacious than on previous masters but still retains its earthy and organic quality.

QC is, as usual in this series, erratic: I had to return my first one (for a pressing fault causing a recurrent thumping sound on side 3), as I had to do with one of their Japan remasters in the summer and Another Green World last year. The second one was perfect though. If you can find a non-faulty pressing, I’d say this is worth getting. The best I’ve heard this album sound.

I’m probably a philistine for doing this, but I tend to play On Land at 45. Give it a try—it’s genuinely more melodic that way.

It doesn't matter how many times I listen to "Shadow", it just sends the willies up me every time I hear it.

I've never heard another piece of music that has that distinctly creepy, unsettling effect.

Yet I keep coming back for more.

Definitely my favourite of Eno's Ambient series.

A COMPELLING RECORDING of an artist fulfilling a vision of conscious exploration "exaggerating and inventing rather than replicating spaces, experimenting in particular with various techniques of time distortion" - spawning like minded individuals to create what is now one of the most inventive and boundaryless musical forms evolving today. Rich in texture and rooted in possibilities and the influence of idea (note the "Tal Coat" and "Unfamiliar Wind (Leeks Hills)" onenote moving bass line which found refuge in the music of U2's "Unforgettable Fire").

In his search for organic quality of sounds (the frogs on "Leeks Hills" is the perfect product of this experiment) Eno states that he found the synthesiser of "limited usefulness because its sound tended towards a diagrammatic quality." Altho this work is hauntingly electro-mechanical and could find a home in any of the various NOVA "skycam documentaries" recounting observation planes aiming their soaring camera lenses at the sweeping country-side below; it's total composition is a success and one of his best earlier works and achievements. It doesn't hurt getting help from Michael Beinhorn (synth) and Bill Laswell (bass) either.

One of the copies I have of this came with a pamphlet that explains the process of "On Land". The maturation of thought and travel and recorded ambient sound that went into creating this album.

My favourite ambient record of Brian Eno. Pure sound, rarely any melody, dominated by a meditative flow of bass and spacy sinti/moog-like moods. Pianos that sound like bells, mighty and reverbareted. Some smart jungle sounds give you sometimes the feeling of being in a tropical forest. A bit like the Jon Hassel / Brian Eno ambient/world music LP but without trumpet and percussion and at halfspeed.
For the vinylists: Never had this LP without very smart crackling/vinyl distortion. Even Mint records have their little clicks or slight overdrives at ultrahigh frequencies.
