I think that given how great Eno's first albums were it's a shame that he was sidetracked by his ambient stuff.
Drawing comparisons with Der Ost is Rot or Movies by Holger Czukay (who, incidentally, was using samples in his work a good three to four years earlier) is an interesting game.
How very English. Did Toyah, Robert Fripp's wife, make the cake? Sadly the sleeve notes don't list the chef.
