    Secret Life is a collaborative album by Fred (Gibson) Again.. and Eno in this album, Fred again.. uses his sample collages and slows them down to match the ambient pioneer’s glacial pace. Eno has admitted that he initially did not fully understand the uniqueness of Gibson's style, but it eventually dawned on him. Although Fred’s methods are not entirely new, he is an impressive producer who has successfully upcycled various techniques from other artists such as the Range, Burial, and James Blake, creating fresh patterns in a rapidly revolving kaleidoscope of influences that have become mainstream.

      A great mellow album that sounds fantastic. Great pressing too - Eno should have these guys press his LPs as his own label’s pressings have been very uneven with lots of stitching/non-fill issues

        There is a different version without any (spot varnished) text on the sleeve. Only a small barcode sticker with title and artist. Maybe a (rare ;)) misprint.

              A couple pops on Follow and Enough, but otherwise a perfect copy. This album has quickly become my favorite from my collection. I don't know what it is about it, I just gained a personal attachment to it. I love Fred again.. and his Actual Life series, but this is a night and day difference between AL. Private, heartfelt ambience. ❤

                  Stunning songs, recording and pressing. Quiet yet totally captivating. Amazing how good a system can sound with an excellent record.

                    My copy is flat and sounds stellar. Great work on the art and quality control. Not a single flaw on this one - something that is becoming unusual lately

                      Track 5 Side A (Enough) which also happens to be one of my favorites plays with terrible pops fixed at every rotation. Disappointing but rest of the LP sounds amazing. Trying to see if I can get my copy replaced
