Brian Eno - Small Craft On A Milk Sea

In most fields of endeavour pioneers, at some point or other, stop pioneering – they either redirect their energies to pastures new or settle down to churn out pale relations of their earlier work illumined by the occasional flash of past glories. Brian Eno falls somewhere in between these extremes.

It certainly has a fair amount of synchronicity about it.
