Even a label as enviable as Warp should count itself lucky to have him, as should we.

Small Craft on a Milk Sea sits surprisingly comfortably alongside the records from Eno's ambient and experimental golden era.

Drowned in Sound

For the most part, Small Craft on a Milk Sea slots back into that forward thinking mindset, creating further realms of possibility for Eno to operate in.

One of 2010's finest ambient albums,"Small Craft on a Milk Sea", Brian Eno once again proves his longevity and illustrious vision for crafting an electronic tinged ambient record, that invariably contrasts multiple musical flavors and presents them in a palatable manner.

Small Craft on a Milk Sea is another solid ambient work from Brian Eno. It feels relaxed even in its more abrasive moments with guitar and heavy soundscapes. It really is a calming album but still has a somber air to it, it's solid project, nothing all that special for an ambient record but still a nice calming listen which allows you to indulge in it's very fine and dark atmosphere.

Best Track: Complex Heaven
Worst Track: 2 Forms Of Anger

☆☆½ ~ Acceptable work. I have some kind of ambivalence about the whole album concept and its sound.
