Enticing and tranquil, the Pearl has stood the test of time to emerge as a classic work of ambient beauty. This was the second musical collaboration between Harold Budd and Brian Eno. Working with a similar process to 1980's , the Plateaux of Mirror both artists have grown resulting in a more complex and equally entrancing album.
