It's a gentle listen, but "Thursday Afternoon" is uncomfortably close to something as insubstantial as wind chimes. I might even go so far as to say it's boring. A lot of his earlier ambient work functioned on more than one level; there was the gossamer ambient sounds, but also interesting production, sound design, and actual music to enjoy. "Thursday Afternoon" doesn't have much of that. It sounds like a record you made when you were super high and thought it sounded amazing. Then the next day you listen to it straight and realize there's less there than you thought. It's a nice album to fall asleep to, and that's the best I can say about it.

My copy also has a black and white 2 sided insert with information/explanation of the actual Thursday afternoon video release on one side and the order form for it (in both regular and beta formats) on the other side. Now THAT'S a time capsule!

Get this shit on wax already Bri’Guy, The sceno-need-the-Eno.
Though to be fair this came out just as everyone assumed it would from that point beard always or forever be on compact disc which it was, for a while at least, but look at us now. We all just wish it had an initial release so we could have a first pressing from the year it was released and not a reissue/pressing, but Of course we’d still be quite happily satisfied either way!

This is one of the best ambient pieces of all time, it can be so many different things on so many different listenings for me, whether I’m meditating or tripping down memory lane (~);} or just having it on the background during a serene drive or evening or outing or what have you. So yeah, I would agree that this deserves a vinyl release ASAP.

My favorite tracks are the first and the last one. Nothing compares or is similar to this masterpiece, except Brian Eno himself. Even with all the money of this world, I doubt Mr. Eno could recreate an universe of sounds like 'Thursday Afternoon' today. Thanks Brian.

this music will stun you in all its stillness. the soft ring of each key stroke will gently tap your mind before you zone out ensuring you're still listening. this music is a soundtrack to a lazy daydream on a thursday afternoon.

This release was one of the first pieces of music specifically written to take advantage of a 'magic' new audio format, the compact disc! That basic premise doesn't sound too promising but Eno delivers the listener a quiet, plangent, softly layered soundscape that is the aural equivalent of watching distant clouds form and dissipate. There is attention to sonic detail that rewards the listener who fails to 'nod off' or 'switch off'. This is classic ambient, rarely imitated and quite unique. The nearest thing I can think of like this is Autechre & Hafler Trio's 'æo³ & ³hæ'. Two decades separate these releases and although the base sound palate is different there is a 'drawing in' effect that is similar and satisfyingly attractive.

Possibly, one of the most beautiful pieces of music ever written. From the genius mind of Brian Eno evolves a random computer driven soundscape which evokes calm and serenity.
