I keep coming back to this; something about the composition and the textures, the building fuzz and clash of overtones as the piece builds up, really hits me in a good hard resonant way.

cortex - thanks for reminding me of this. On first listen about a month ago, it brought a great memory back of traveling through the UK in 1989 with only a handful of cassettes for soundtrack, one of which was Eno's Warm Jets album. At some point, I rather euphorically concluded that the title track was one of the single most amazing pieces of music ever composed (I was watching waves break at the time, at sunset off the northwest coast of Ireland, catching fire). And yet over the years, there have been so few covers.

And thanks, Television Name. Those waves are still breaking.

I'm not even familiar with the original recording and I really enjoyed this. The next time I hear someone tell me that synth tends to be robotic and cold (this has happened before), I will point them here.
