The press release for Roger Eno’s This Floating World describes the LP as ‘warm and feathered furniture music’, and there is certainly something ornamental about the composers first solo work in a near-decade. The chemtrails of reverb that float off these stately, often mournful piano compositions belie Eno’s background in film as well as invoking plenty of 20th Century English composers - Britten, Bryars, that sort of thing - and The Caretaker. All in all, This Floating World is a quite lovely album.

This Floating World by Roger Eno

8/10 Jamie Staff review, 28 November 2017

Roger Eno is the ambient Eno who isn’t named ‘Brian’, if that helps, and this LP marks his first solo album since 2008’s ‘Flood’. This Floating World features Roger playing his piano, as you might expect -- he plays it a lot, and slowly, letting his strings reverb in the space around our ears, gently, harmonically -- yes, beautifully -- as if gradually weaving a silken cocoon made of notes.

His chamber preludes dissolve into each other to produce an utterly charming and becalming record for these hectic late November times and our fast-approaching December days. A rustic, wintry pleasure. Maybe put this on as you do your early Christmas present wrapping? Just a thought.
