    Match-Cut Band Consensus - Brian Eno

    The Rules of the Game:

    How to post selections:

    - Assign a rating to each album based on a scale of 1-10
    - Half points may be used
    - It is not necessary to rank the albums. Instead, please post all lists in chronological order, starting with the earliest album.

    For an album to be eligible for the band's overall rating, it must have at least four (4) votes. Otherwise, there isn't a sufficient amount of votes to make the rating as objective or effective as an album that has received twenty (20) votes. If an album is mentioned only once or twice, I will still post that album's average (quite easy if only mentioned once) but I will separate it from the albums that factor into the band's overall rating.

    I am impatient of all misery in others that is not mad. Thou should'st go mad, blacksmith; say, why dost thou not go mad? How can'st thou endure without being mad? Do the heavens yet hate thee, that thou can'st not go mad?

    Now that I think of it, we should probably include Roxy Music here, right?

    No.
    "We eventually managed to find them near Biskupin, where demonstrations of prehistoric farming are organized. These oxen couldn't be transported to anywhere else, so we had to built the entire studio around them. A scene that lasted twenty-something seconds took us a year and a half to prepare."

    I don't think I will.

    I do really like some of them (especially Nile and Compact Forest Proposal).

    I didn't rate Textures either. It's definitely one of my favorites, but never officially released at all.

    I feel that your Shutov Assembly score is too low, Russ!

    Whenever people talk shit on the Yamaha DX7, I always point to this album as a testament to how amazing that synth is.

    Hmm...thought I had given that one an 8. Oh well, * fixed *.

    Bumped Textures up to an 8 too; that was too low.

    It is kind of hard to really rate a lot of his instrumental ambient albums. I mean a few really stand out, but for the most part I think it is a little arbitrary.

    Yeah, but I'm like you - Textures has always been one of my more highly regarded of his purely instrumental/ambient works.

    LOVED their concert in San Antonio. One of the most memorable concerts I ever attended.

    And I get the joke.

    I think I rated this album too low. Need to give it another listen, it's been awhile.

    I'll never get around to listening to their entire discography.

    Just wait until Frank Zappa. LOLLL!L!L!L!L!L!

    Confession: I've never listened to a single Zappa song. Don't even know where to start.
