Our take

Here Come the Warm Jets is the debut solo album by British musician Brian Eno, released on Island Records in January 1974. It was recorded and produced by Eno following his departure from the band Roxy Music, and blends glam and pop stylings with avant-garde approaches.

The album's title was believed to be a slang term for urination, though in an interview with Mojo magazine in 1996, Eno said that it came from a description he wrote for the treated guitar on the title track; he called it "warm jet guitar ... because the guitar sounded like a tuned jet." Critical reception for the album was mostly positive, with praise focused on its experimental tendencies. Critic Lester Bangs of Creem declared it "incredible," and noted that "the predominant feel is a strange mating of edgy dread with wild first-time-out exuberance."
