"Profiling Eno for Musician toward the end of 1979, Lester Bangs got advance glimpses of the work-in-progress: ‘It sounds like nothing we’ve ever heard from Brian Eno before; like nothing ever heard before, period. The influence of the move to New York is unmistakable: a polyglot freneticism, a sense of real itching rage and desperation… It gives intimations of a new kind of international multi-idiomatic music that would cross all commercial lines, uniting different cultures, the past and the future, European experimentalism and gutbucket funk.’”
From “Brian Eno: Taking Manhattan (By Strategy),” by Simon Reynolds.
