Performer Notes
  • Personnel: Brian Eno (vocals, guitar, piano, synthesizer, percussion); Kurt Schwitters (vocals); Paul Rudolph (guitar, bass guitar); Phil Manzanera, Robert Fripp, Fred Frith (guitar); Achim Roedelius (piano, electric piano); Mobile Moebius (electric piano); Percy Jones, Bill MacCormick, Brian Turrington (bass guitar); Dave Mattacks, Andy Fraser, Phil Collins, Jaki Liebezeit (drums); Rhett Davies, Shirley Caesar Williams (percussion).
  • Eno's last glam-pop album before devoting himself entirely to ambient experimentation, BEFORE AND AFTER SCIENCE showcases two sides of Eno's musical personality. The first half of the disc is characterized by floppy, pop-tinged romps reminiscent of his earlier albums (and heralding later Eno-piloted projects such as the Talking Heads' SPEAKING IN TONGUES). Tunes like "Backwater" and "King's Lead Hat" (a song whose lyrics are reputedly about the Talking Heads, the title an anagram of the band's name) feature bouncy beats and keyboards, silly, riddle-like lyrics and Eno's Muppet-ish vocals. The second half is considerably more subdued: the tender, airy feeling of tracks like "Julie With" and "Spider and I" indicate Eno's softer, abstract, synthesizer-dominated direction. Taken together, the fine tracks of this disc frame two sides of Eno: the pop songster and the ambient composer.

Anthony on
The first side of this album consists of a number of upbeat tracks, ranging from the pop of Backwater, to the proto-punk of King's Lead Hat (It's an anagram, you know!). These are punctuated by the gentle instrumental of Through Hollow Lands. The second side contains a number of more mellow tracks, beginning with Here He Comes. Julie With and By This River are wonderfully evocative of spring or summer. The album ends with the wonderfully melancholic Spider and I:

We sleep in the mornings,
We dream of a ship that sails away,
A thousand miles away.
