Taking Tiger Mountain (By Strategy)

Brian Eno

Island Records

Working this time with a smaller core of musicians, including Robert Wyatt and former Roxy Music bandmate Phil Manzanera, as well as employing his famed ‘Oblique Strategies’ cards, Brian Eno’s second solo album of 1974 was the creative equal of Here Come the Warm Jets; if a hair less frenetic, it’s still a cavalcade of sonic delights, art/pop/rock that deserves the hybrid term. Sonic predecessors of any number of future bands and musicians can be heard through songs like the snaky roil of “Third Uncle” and the careful lope of “The Fat Lady of Limbourg.”
