Apparently I passed over one of the greatest albums of the 2010's. This albums manages to capture the angsty zeitgeist of our time without sinking to nihilistic lows in order to get it's point across. This is the kind of music Wire would've written if they had the technology to make it sound this good. This music is bombastic, loud, adrenaline-pumping post-punk at it's finest. Like with Kids See Ghosts, not only is it a masterpiece, I fully intend on listening to this for many years to come.

It's rich sonic textures and moody atmosphere well compliment the introspective (if a ... read more

There are many things I could say about this album. About how it's one of the most beautiful, affirmig statements musical poems on life. I could say how cohesive it is and how every track contributes to an album greater than the sum of it's parts. I could talk about every electronic album since it's release has been at least somewhat influenced by it. But I'll leave it as simple as I can possibly can: Brian Eno's Another Green World is the best album I have ever heard and likely ever will hear.
