1 Song, 1 Hour 5 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

For his 26th solo album, Brian Eno returns to the ambient sound he popularised with 1975’s Discreet Music. As with 1985’s Thursday Afternoon, Reflection consists of just a single track. This is generative music, where Eno programmed a set of sounds to repeat in infinite patterns. There’s an app version where Reflection plays forever—but here, bell tones prick and glimmer, soothing and unsettling in equal measure.

Reminds me of Thursday Afternoon. Great for sleep time or anytime. Very pleasing sound.
