Here Come the Warm Jets


Brian Eno’s 1974 solo debut following his departure from Roxy Music simultaneously retained the often anarchic pop/rock energy of that band’s earliest days and explored new variations and possibilities in the form, a kaleidoscopic listen both instantly catchy and strikingly unusual. With a slew of guest performers, including former Roxy bandmates Robert Fripp and Chris Spedding, Here Come The Warm Jets ranged from cascading glam-rock anthems to tension-building grooves to serene ballads, tied together with Eno’s sometimes eerily calm, sometimes nervous vocals.
