Very clean pressing & appears to be 180 grams. Still an awesome recording after all these years.

Still one of the best ambient album of all times.
Only a few crackles on side 2. Fine pressing, excellent sound quality and very smooth remaster. Well done.

World music term has been applied in so many contexts that it has no meaning. This record is speaks on lots of levels. It is a fabric of multiple patterns and textures. It is warm, haunting, and searching at the same time. Electronically processes instruments still have human feeling associated with them. Eno's ambient stuff can be more for a particular moment than something that can be played regularly. If you let this music into your world you will not regret it.

One of the finest ambient albums, not only from the early days, but generally speaking. Hassell's otherworldly trumpet sounds like a spirit flying over an ancient landscape. Deep, organic ambient that I played on repeat while studying.

I agree very much with the musical descrption of cheap_suit. Concerning the A-side. For me the B-side is the better side and the climax of this record. 21 minutes of finest percussion, light but melancholic synthesizers, pushed by Hassells trumpet. magical.

This is supposedly the album Eno worked on just before jumping into the "My Life in the Bush of Ghosts" sessions, and while the two albums are very different, you can definitely see the fingerprints of Early 80s Eno all over this one. Hassell's heavily-effected trumpet is the lead instrument here, but the mood mostly belongs to the minimal rhythms underneath, which successfully walk the line between meditative and groovy. The idea of possible fourth world musics is all about a place beyond pop and folk, beyond primitive and synthetic, where all known sounds collapse into a new aesthetic, and the A side of this record strikes that balance perfectly. The illusion falters on the B side, where Hassell's trumpet sounds just a bit too much like a trumpet, and its jazzy noodling stops sounding like a celestial force and starts to resemble... well, a jazz guy noodling on a trumpet. Still a great release overall.

landmark in ambient-world musics! Use of world music, taped themselves or sampled? (next to the own instruments of course..).

At least one track was played during pre-New Beat-period in Belgium, possibly also used in Cosmic-Disco mixes or Balearic..(?)
