They think it’s time to tackle a classic album dissection of his 1974 record Taking Tiger Mountain (By Strategy.) They discuss Eno’s career before and since the album, as well as hear a bit of Eno himself from their 2011 interview with him.

Brian Eno’s Taking Tiger Mountain (By Strategy)

Brian Eno Taking Tiger Mountain By Strategy

This week, hosts Jim DeRogatis and Greg Kot undertake a classic album dissection by popular demand from listeners- Brian Eno’s second solo album, “Taking Tiger Mountain (By Strategy).” Eno’s name comes up often enough on Sound Opinions that it’s often marked with a ding from the “Eno bell,” but this is the first classic album dissection they’ve ever done of an Eno album.


Dear Listeners,

For more than 15 years, Sound Opinions was a production of WBEZ, Chicago's public radio station. Now that the show is independent, we're inviting you to join the band and lend a hand! We need your support more than ever because now we have to do all the behind-the-scenes work that WBEZ handled before (like buying insurance and paying for podcast hosting, ugh). Plus, we have some exciting ideas we'd like to try now that there's no one to tell us no!
