Some of budd and Eno’s best work. Yeah as others have said, the eg pressing has some pops in there regardless of how mint your copy is. Unfortunate but it’s all we got (pretty sure eg pressed all of these)

Don’t let it discourage you - this is an amazing album and the record should be cherished

This album by Brian Eno and Harold Budd reminds me more of being back in Vietnam than any piece of music I’ve ever heard.  I feel enticingly wrapped in giant green leafed plants that give off a palatable heat, where sunlight shifts and splinters into a thousand different variations and hues, where the shades of green are so varied that it’s impossible to take any of them for granted, where the ground is so moist and full of life that you can actually squeeze the moisture out between your fingers, and where, if you listen quietly, for even the shortest amount of time, there is a rhythm and harmony that both floats in and vibrates all around you.  These are fragile moments, moments that go almost unconsidered until you realize that they’ve passed ... but if you lay still, and let your mind float down stream, all of the splendor will wash over you again, like a warm summer rain, in a matter of seconds.

The Pearl is beyond electronic or classical music, and because it is so ethereal, can certainly not be classified with the genre of soundscapes.  Yes the layering is rich and thick with texture.  But these textures are so precariously balanced with nature, that it often feels as if these two men have set up their instruments and equipment to capture and play along with the ever changing faces of nature ... in her most remote and unexplored regions.

Instinctively I want to check my weapon, to make sure all is in order, that I have not lolled myself into a hypnotic sense of complacency, because sadly, beyond the beauty found here lies the real world.  

Ahhh ... aren’t memories funny things?

I own two copies of this pressing, both have the same problem with heavy crackle in the right channel A1-A3. From A4 and forth there are no deviations in sound quality. Do anyone else experience this? Both records are visually flawless. Both cleaned a couple of times but the problem remains.

Harold Budd plays piano here, but the album is dominated Eno's production. It is very much in the spirit of his "Ambient" series. Quiet, slow soundscapes create a rich atmosphere of melancholy. I only wish some of the tracks were longer. Essential work if you're into this type of music.

This album came out a year after my birth, and I consider myself blessed to have discovered it several years ago. It is truly a gem captured on recording. Hence, the very fitting name: The Pearl. It is every bit as enthralling, captivating, and mesmerizing as those gently glistening gems that lie hidden in the depths of a vast mysterious ocean.

The Pearl is one of those pieces of music that just FEELS like you've heard it before. I think it is the emotion behind this music that some of us have FELT before. To me, the main theme sails from Despair and Solemness to Pensiveness and Hope. It is a courageous piece of work, and I think it is one of the most emotionally stimulating pieces of music that Brian Eno & Harold Budd have created. Just as a Pearl forms from immaculate layers of nacre, so does this musical Pearl form from rich layers of emotion.

It deserves every one of those 5 stars.

I remember the first time i heard this album. After a night in the pub with a good mate,we went back to his and played chess. The Pearl was playing on repeat in the background and with a mixture of alchohol and The Pearl,the game went on till early morning. 7am to be precise. The whole experience seemed to have been in slow motion.
So there you go,an essential album for playing 7 hour chess matches to.
