The Drop (Double Gatefold Vinyl)

By Brian EnoAvailable now
Image: The Drop
Reissue of 1997 album, The Drop was intended not only as a new area for his sonic explorations but as an entirely new style of ‘Drop’ music. Described by Eno as an interpretation of jazz from a vague, alien perspective, The Drop also integrates his interests in the melodic yet percussive basslines of Fela Kuti and the complex, labyrinthine melodies of The Mahavishnu Orchestra. Ever the provocateur, on this record Eno defies classification, avoiding association with pop, existent sonic approaches and even music itself.

Gatefold vinyl edition is the first time the album has appeared on this format. Includes 2 tracks not on the CD or digital editions (“Slicing System” and “Sharply Cornered”), unique vinyl edit of the track “Iced World”, download card to access audio of everything on the vinyl, and printed inners containing Eno writing and images from the period.
