The 5th track on the original album is titled "Two Rapid Formations" not "Transformations".

this is the record that eno released as a soundtrack for imaginary films, hoping that some of the tracks would show up in real films. as far as i know, only one film has ever used any of these tracks. is that because of a lack of interest or because eno has been selective?

none of these tracks actually go anywhere at all, they just float into themselves and then float back out. eno's "ambience" is essentially somebody using computers to write minimalist impressionist music, but this record also includes a large amount of organic instrumentation. what separates this record as distinct from other ambient eno discs is that this record makes use of the same progressive rock musicians that eno had earlier used on his more rock oriented records. in future releases, eno would shy away from this, which is a shame as their playing greatly thickens up this record.

the track titles suggest possible uses of the tracks within a film context. some tracks, such as events in dense fog, seem to accomplish their task admirably well. others, such as aragon, are less successful. still others, such as quartz, are unclear in their intentions, although, at times, gorgeous nonetheless.

we probably didn't need three consecutive versions of sparrowfall, but the disc is otherwise functional as background/reading music and certainly worth picking up if found in a discount bin or used shop. as far as covering all of the bases with eno is concerned, this is one of the more essential records as the inclusion of guitar and violin is a distinct break from the early piano ambience records and the later purely synthesized discs.
