The Drop

 

WAST024CD_1400

Reissue of 1997 album, The Drop was intended not only as a new area for his sonic explorations but as an entirely new style of ‘Drop’ music. Described by Eno as an interpretation of jazz from a vague, alien perspective, The Drop also integrates his interests in the melodic yet percussive basslines of Fela Kuti and the complex, labyrinthine melodies of The Mahavishnu Orchestra. Ever the provocateur, on this record Eno defies classification, avoiding association with pop, existent sonic approaches and even music itself.

The expanded digital and CD editions include 9 rarely-heard bonus tracks from the same period as The Drop, previously only available as limited edition of 1,000 sold at an exhibition of Brian Eno’s 77 Million Paintings at Lafloret in Japan in 2006, the original issue of which has since become a collector’s item amongst Eno fans.
