Perhaps I’m mistaken, but I don’t think I’m going out on a limb when I say that the Brian Eno albums Nerve Net, The Shutov Assembly, Neroli, and The Drop are not on a lot of people’s lists of their favorite works by him. The records came out as a fairly steady series beginning in 1992, after an extended break from solo studio work. His previous album to 1992’s Nerve Net was 1985’s Thursday Afternoon, a personal favorite, but a lot happened in the intervening years. In any case, those four records have all been made available as bonus-track-laden reissues by All Saints, and if they in initial form struck your ear as more a collection of interesting individual ideas than standalone listens, then perhaps this track by Clark is what you’ve been waiting for. It’s a mix of highlights from the eight discs that comprise the reissue program, 34 minutes in all:
