  • German composers Dieter Moebius and Joachim Roedelius formed the synthesizer duo Cluster during the '70s krautrock boom, but only attracted wide attention outside their homeland when they joined forces with Brian Eno for the 1977 album CLUSTER AND ENO. The excellent 1978 follow-up, AFTER THE HEAT, is credited to the three individual participants, emphasizing the contributions of each. Several of the album's 10 pieces, particularly the turbulent "Oil" and "Foreign Affairs," emphasize Moebius' and Roedelius' Tangerine Dream-style analogue synthesizers, while the more reflective, piano-based "Luftschloss" and "The Shade" move toward the gentler ambient directions Eno was beginning to explore around this time. The album's best piece, "Tzima N'Arki," is an intriguing faux-Middle-Eastern collaboration featuring an Eno vocal played backwards, foreshadowing much of Eno's '80s work, including MY LIFE IN THE BUSH OF GHOSTS and FOURTH WORLD 1: POSSIBLE MUSICS. Most of this album later appeared on the compilation OLD LAND.
Professional Reviews
Q (Magazine) (p.122) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "[Eno] was in full, fascinating ambient flow, hence the surprisingly expansive 'After The Heat.'"
