One of only two major ambient works Brian Eno recorded in the '90s--THE SHUTOV ASSEMBLY being the other--NEROLI is a single composition, 58 minutes long, that combines Eno's concept of music designed not to be listened to attentively with the vaguely North African feel implied by the piece's title. Written in the Phrygian mode, with flattened intervals and missing root notes that give the piece a seeming lack of tonality, NEROLI is even more peculiarly weightless than earlier extended ambient works like THURSDAY AFTERNOON. Also unlike earlier ambient works, the comparatively substantial melodic content of NEROLI rewards attentive listening as well as the piece's intended use as environmental music. In many ways, NEROLI is a summation of Eno's theories of ambient music.
