This is a great album, it harkens back to Eno's heyday with My Life In The Bush Of Ghosts (deeply abstract, vibrant and impassioned live performances) and the hypnotic groovy-ness of Remain In Light's polyrhythms. High Life is his best work in 20 years and yet it feels spontaneous and current, which is refreshing. It sounds like Eno being inspired by more outside forces than just the legacy of his previous accomplishments.… Expand

I really enjoyed it, and there are some tunes that i still remember, despite last hearing them years ago. Truly unforgettable stuff.
I got this album, hoping that it has the same level of brilliance of the previously mentioned one. Unfortunately, it doesn't; which made me feel a bit disappointed.
But when i gave it a second listen, i realized that it's pretty much impressive in its own right. Tracks "DBF" and "Moulded Life" boast some really cool and fast electronic music, while "Return" and "Cells & Bells" are more relaxing and slow, but no less mesmerizing.
The remaining two tracks (there's only 6 of them) are okay, but didn't capture my attention in any special way.
So in the end, i can say that this is a pretty great electronic album, and a pretty great Brian Eno album. Check it out.… Expand
