Few artists can claim to have had as much impact on popular music as Brian Eno. His solo pieces and work as a record producer have influenced the way pop, punk, rock and dance music are made and listened to. Eno’s newest album, “Small Craft on a Milk Sea,” does not disappoint.
From the ambient opening track, “Emerald and Lime,” the album quickly begins to explore darker territory, adding crisp production to the results of the artist’s improvisations with electronic artists Jon Hopkins and Leo Abrahams. From start to finish, the rapport the trio have built up through years of playing together is clear.
