Brian Eno: Music for Airports Customer Reviews
||Eno would haved loved this|
A perfect replica of Eno's original, only using real musicians and instruments as opposed to the original's tape loops. Very droll. But so well done, it is as good as Eno - which means perfect Ambient.

||an Eno "remix"???|
Imagine my surprise, hearing Bang on a Can's version of an Eno favorite. Interesting concept, but I still prefer the original.
