Art rock is where Brian Eno is comfortable. From his work with Roxy Music to that with David Byrne he has produced some of the coolest stuff from that genre. He continues on with that lofty type of music on "Small Craft on a Milk Sea". The album is the music from a three-act play he wrote. You can tell as the album is clearly divided into three sections. The first part is soft and slow, the middle speeds up and then the third slows it all down again. It is a story told without words. Eno relies heavily on synthesizers, but uses a variety of instruments like piano and guitar. This is an album. Not a series of songs. At the end there is one complete thought being communicated.
