After the countless sonic experiments released post Roxy Music departure, Brian Eno started perfecting the sound and stylistic detour he'd later call 'ambient-music'. His first solo albums already showed deep signs of the pop deconstruction that would lead to his masterpiece: Another Green World - a mental, atmospheric blend of pop/rock/ambient/experimental music that sounds like it came directly from outer space.

One of musics greatest producers and a pioneer of ambient art rock, Brian Eno’s Another Green World is music for the heart and soul and easily one of the greatest in the genre. The feelings brought on by the noise of this album feel 100% genuine and almost no other album in history can bring these feeling the way that this record does. Eno is truly a master of his craft and proves that on almost all of his earlier efforts, especially this and “Here Come the Warm Jets” (1973). ... read more
