THE SHIP

The Back­story: The first Eno record to fea­ture vo­cals in over a decade, The Ship sailed into the al­bum charts at Num­ber 28 (his high­est since 1981’ s My Life In The Bush Of Ghosts with David Byrne) and marked the am­bi­ent pi­o­neer’s on­go­ing artis­tic re­birth. The Clincher: A con­cept LP in­spired by “the vast deep ocean where the Ti­tanic sank” and the bat­tle­fields of WWI could’ve been a dull and wor­thy af­fair, but Eno ex­tracted warmth and in­ti­macy from the sonic swell. What They Say: “I thought, ‘Oh, what about mak­ing a song that you could walk around in­side?’” Key Track: Fickle Sun (III) I’m Set Free. SM
