I certainly agree with Byrne on his stance about the drawbacks to pure digital recording technology.  His comments both toward independence of tempo and making sure you create recordings that sound good on anything are absolutely what I was taught early on.  Tempo can be all about meaningful expression and is not necessarily about keeping the beat, something my band friends have a problem with...  When I learned how to record with digital equipment I found out that it won't necessarily sound good on every device.  Most listeners do not have studio quality reproduction equipment.  Hence I stay away from computer recording and record on independent analog to digital equipment with very high dynamic definition, range and resolution.  Now if I was just any good at playing it would certainly be something!

I have My Life in a Bush of Ghosts. Pretty good stuff as is most of Eno's work. Before and After Science, Here Come the Warm Jets, Another Green World are all great. I liked him In Roxy Music, as well. I have to say that after Talking Heads, whom I loved, Byrne hasn't done a lot that I'd listen to more than once or twice.

Rei Momo was really good (major Brazilian influence) and "Love This Giant' is very much a logical extension of the "Talking Head Byrne" with the very interesting addition of St. Vincent.

The ambient stuff is cool but not for everybody. Very intelligent elevator music? Lanois can be very good in his own right. I absolutely love "Acadie".
