Brian Eno 's icy ohms and Jah Wobble 's din collide on Spinner. It's not a collaborative effort in the traditional sense; rather, Eno shipped off tracks from an aborted soundtrack to the ex- Public Image Ltd.
The end result is interesting: ten musical chambers linked together in a continuous stream that range from steamy Eastern settings "Like Organza" to uber-funk Unusual Balance - Eno* / Wobble* - Spinner "Unusual Balance". However, Wobble 's contributions feel tacked on, often tentative, more akin to an editor than an equal creative partner. This is Eno 's world, and only gradually does Jah Wobble slip his toe into the water before splashing about. It's a hard balance to strike, wishing to keep Eno 's alien landscapes intact while trying to add relevant commentary, and rarely do the two composers co-exist peacefully.
The spirit of collaboration is alive on "Marine Radio," where Eno 's soundtrack is relegated to the role of a single instrument, but more often the music fails to find a middle ground. Some will point to individual sections that sound like Ambient 2: The Plateaux of MirrorDiscreet Music, My Life in the Bush of Ghostsand other Unusual Balance - Eno* / Wobble* - Spinner where Eno 's muse has been better served, claiming that this music too functions well as ambient music albeit with a dub presence.
Yet the sum effect of Eno and Wobble sounds more like Tangerine Dream from the '80s, at a time when that band began to abandon music as a homogenous whole and instead layered superficial rhythms on top of amorphous undercurrents.
