#369 Brian Eno – Before And After Science

Before And After Science is the fifth studio album of Brian Eno and the third album of five on 1001 Albums You Must Hear Before You Die. I loved the first album, but the last went down a bit for me. I wonder if this can compete with his previous works. Some critics think this is his best album. Phil Collins plays the drums on this album. Yes, that Phil Collins.

I listened to this album twice and I could not come to any conclusions about it. I think I liked it, but it is so weird. I definitely liked “By This River” because it sounded like a lullaby, a sweet romantic lullaby. It is a sad song. Eno is not a vocalist and that is what is throwing me off. Ironically, his voice fits the music, but the music is much better than the vocals, yet it all fits together. I always reserve the right to change a score in the future. 9/10.
