ambient music (n.): good for homework, falling asleep, waking up, getting dressed, getting undressed, deep thinking, not thinking at all, and pretty much everything in between. 

brian eno (n.): 1.  artist, producer, master sound manipulator, god. he coined the phrase ‘ambient music’ and  was behind the boards for some of the best albums made by David Bowie, Talking Heads, Devo, and U2

                       2.  famous for his unusual yet strategic approach to music-making as he is more likely to draw a diagram than writing down chord changes. 

cue eno’s 1975 album Another Green World … one of the more profound musical ‘experiences’ (yes, not ‘song’, ‘EXPERIENCE’….) that i have come across to date. 

looking back, what i just wrote is insultingly cheesy. but, kids, i’m not a music writer and at this point i just gotta write what i feel regardless of how dweeby i sound.

listen to ‘The Big Ship’ and tell me synonyms of words like ‘epic’  don’t come to mind. how do you describe something this good?
