Another Green World

Brian Eno

1975

Another Green World

Album Summary

Another Green World is the third studio album by English musician Brian Eno (credited simply as "Eno"), released by Island Records in November 1975. Produced by Eno and Rhett Davies, it features contributions from a small core of musicians including Robert Fripp (guitar), Phil Collins (drums), Percy Jones (fretless bass), and Rod Melvin (piano). John Cale (of The Velvet Underground) plays viola on two tracks. The album marked a transition from the rock-based music of Eno's previous releases toward the minimalist instrumentals of his late '70s ambient work. Only five of its fourteen tracks feature vocals. Employing tactics derived from his Oblique Strategies cards for guidance, Eno utilised a variety of unconventional recording techniques and instrumental approaches, reflected in unusual instrumental credits such as "snake guitar" and "uncertain piano". The cover is a detail from After Raphael by the British artist Tom Phillips. The album’s only chart success was in New Zealand where it reached #24, even though an international body of critics praised Another Green World upon its release. Contemporary reception has been likewise positive; several publications, including Rolling Stone, NME and Pitchfork, have named the album among the greatest of the 1970s.

A universally acknowledged masterpiece, Another Green World represents a departure from song structure and toward a more ethereal, minimalistic approach to sound. Despite the stripped-down arrangements, the album's sumptuous tone quality reflects Eno's growing virtuosity at handling the recording studio as an instrument in itself (à la Brian Wilson). There are a few pop songs scattered here and there ("St. Elmo's Fire," "I'll Come Running," "Golden Hours"), but most of the album consists of deliberately paced instrumentals that, while often closer to ambient music than pop, are both melodic and rhythmic; many, like "Sky Saw," "In Dark Trees," and "Little Fishes," are highly imagistic, like paintings done in sound that actually resemble their titles. Lyrics are infrequent, but when they do pop up, they follow the free-associative style of albums past; this time, though, the humor seems less bizarre than gently whimsical and addled, fitting perfectly into the dreamlike mood of the rest of the album. Most of Another Green World is like experiencing a soothing, dream-filled slumber while awake, and even if some of the pieces have dark or threatening qualities, the moments of unease are temporary, like a passing nightmare whose feeling lingers briefly upon waking but whose content is forgotten. Unlike some of his later, full-fledged ambient work, Eno's gift for melodicism and tight focus here keep the entirety of the album in the forefront of the listener's consciousness, making it the perfect introduction to his achievements even for those who find ambient music difficult to enjoy.

Whoa, Eno! Brian Eno's a legend in his own right. Not only was he a member of Roxy Music (who, based on the one album we heard, I really like), he's also the godfather of ambient music, and apparently even came up with the term "ambient music." I know of him, but I'm not sure I've listened to any of his albums. This one blends ambient music with some more traditional rock/vocal tracks; maybe he wasn't quite ready to fully commit to ambient music in 1975. Who could blame him? Regardless, there are great songs on both sides of the coin here. I really dig the integration of more traditional drums and guitars with the electronic synth-driven ambient stuff. Very smooth ride. I'm all aboard this new green world. Favorite tracks: St. Elmo's Fire, Over Fire Island, The Big Ship, Becalmed. Album art: I like this a lot. Clearly some piece of art, not sure if it's famous or not. But I like the simple shapes and colors, and I always enjoy a good frame on an album cover. Font is nice too. 4/5

Such an important album to me, really opened doors in terms of teaching me to appreciate new forms of electronic/ambient music. Without this I don't *get* The Talking Heads or Bowie. And on its own, it's so emotionally potent; The Big Ship and Zawinul/Lava can, under the right circumstances, make me tear up.

Yeah, no. This was boring as hell. Just ... nothing much interesting at all. Even as background music, it bored me to tears. The only reason this isn't getting a single-star review is because the production is excellent. And it should be. That's truly Eno's greatest strength.

Ich vermute, dieses Album schon immer durch all jene davon inspiriert geblaubte Musiker (Sandro Perri, Eric Chenaux, Electrelane, Future Islands, Casiotone for the Painfully Alone, ...) quer-geliebt, jedoch zur falschen Zeit probiert zu haben. Satter Bedroom Sound, warm knarzend, verträumt pluckernd und mit ordentlichem Dada-Gestus entsteht ein Anti-Pop, der in seiner Schrägheit völlig leicht und zugänglich ist, also poppig. Verzauberte 4.6

If I could take with me only one recording Brian Eno had a hand in creating throughout his accomplished career, this would be the one. There's something entirely entrancing and transporting about this record. I feel like it represents so much more than the album itself, but a steadfast belief in the process of making music. I'm always inspired and calmed by this record. It's been too long since I've revisited it, but those days will be behind me for quite some time. Listening through this with fresh ears, I'm struck by just how influential this record may be in so many realms of music from electronic/ambient to shoegaze and even the aesthetics of some hip hop. Favourite song: I think The Big Ship takes it this time around, but if you ask me another day, my answer would be different.

We talked about this at dinner before seeing the Stones. I love this record. I own it. And I have unsuccessfully sought reproduction prints of the cover art, which is by Tom Phillips. Eno's previous two records is also great but the fretless bass factors more prominently here. The prior two records feel much more guitar and synth based. I listen to Eno's music because it's interesting to think about how the sounds I hear factor into his production efforts for bands I love like Bowie, Talking Heads, U2, etc. But at this point, the songs were actually song like. Not long after this record, they just become soundscapes. Which is also cool. But they definitely don't grab you like this one does.

BBC Two: The Album. Joking aside, Another Green World ingeniously manages to be bold and uncompromising and also pleasant and accessible. Perhaps Eno's most celebrated solo album, Another Green World is often seen as a transitional work between his first two, more overtly art-rock albums and the ambient work of his subsequent string of albums. In retrospect, Another Green World successfully marries the two mindsets, with the textured approach enhancing the melodies, rather than allowing them to drift. A curious point, made by plenty including Eno himself: Eno is not a tortured artist. His muse is not begat from struggle, indignation nor despair. Rather, his is the work of a sane, well-adjusted man who experiments because he finds it personally and creatively rewarding. In a sense, you could say his music is led by the head rather than the heart, but he does have a good head. Phil Collins drums on this.

I'm thrilled by the number of Brian Eno albums I've been getting on here to review. He’s one of my favorite artists and I am fascinated with his music, no matter how often I hear it. This is undoubtedly the best album Eno created in that first group of albums he released in the 1970s, possibly his best one period. It’s really the launching point into more of a minimalist style of music for him and the beginning of his departure from rock music. I listen to it frequently and it never fails to move me. For any other artist, this album would be the masterpiece, but Eno’s just getting started here. The album is challenging in subtle ways, but absolutely accessible for those with an interest who are just getting into this kind of music. This is probably the album I would recommend for a new listener to Eno. For all of his creative dalliances over the years and tinkering with noise, there is an inherent prettiness to Eno’s approach on Another Green World. It's just simply lovely to listen to. The songs are all economical in composition, nothing over 4 minutes and the majority of them without vocals. The arrangements are quite simple and subtle, but with an incredibly rich and textured use of instruments and sounds. You can listen to them over and over and you’ll continue to notice new touches you hadn’t heard before. As usual, Eno brings together a murderer's row of talented musicians to this work, continuing his work with the brilliant Robert Fripp on guitar and Phil Collins on Drums. I absolutely love John Cale's contributions on viola. A lot of rock artists bring in strings here and there to their work, but Cale is always a next level collaborator in that regard, particularly on "Sky Saw." Cale and Fripp together on “Golden Hours” are a delight. On almost half of the songs, Eno is the only musician credited, working adeptly with a variety of instruments, from guitar and bass to synthesizer. His use of synthetic percussion on songs like “In Dark Trees” and “Sombre Reptiles” is really terrific and brings to mind future sounds utilized by Talking Heads (go check out “Listening Wind” after hearing this). His use of synthesizers in general is emotionally compelling and a pleasure to hear. Lyrically, Eno starts out with a joke in “Sky Saw,” suggesting that no one gets his lyrics anyway. But overall, when he does sing on this album, the lyrics are softer than on previous works, more poetic and more contemplative. The line I love is “I’ll come running to tie your shoes.” It's so intimate and sweet, a completely unexpected lyric from Eno. What a gem, all of it. Fave Songs (All songs from most to least favorite): Golden Hours, Everything Merges with the Night, I'll Come Running, St. Elmo's Fire, Sky Saw, Becalmed, The Big Ship, Sombre Reptiles, In Dark Trees, Another Green World, Little Fishes, Spirits Drifting, Over Fire Island, Zawinul/Lava

Yummmmm Brian Eno just what I needed today, also a really old album which I haven't listened to either ever in full or in a long time.

Right now I'm receiving it extremely well, exciting unique sounds and innovative creation methods for its day. Well done Brian, 5 stars!

FIVE STARS An all-time classic. As is usually the case with those five-stars albums, I won't write a full-blown review about this particular record, because others have already written wonderful stuff about it and there's not much I can add that I feel could be relevant and interesting. It's just a gem. Go and listen to it a.s.a.p. [Number of albums left to review or just listen to: 981 Number of albums from the list I find relevant enough to be mandatory listens: 9 (including this one) Albums from the list I *might* include in mine later on: 6 Albums from the list I will certainly *not* include in mine (as I think many others are more important): 4 Albums I might not be able to judge (some might end up on my final list if they're culturally important): 1]

One of music's great injustices is that Eno is best known for his work on other people's albums. This is at least as good as the Bowie Berlin albums that came in the next couple of years get all the column inches, and probably better. It's more coherent as an overall collection of songs and a lot denser sounding and textured, more polished, and I say that as a massive massive Bowie fan. Admittedly, he doesn't have the greatest voice but maybe if Eno had had better hair, it could have all been different.

As perfect as an album could get in my eyes without (good) vocals. Every track is just pure genius, reminding of so many of my favorite artists (Joy Division, PJ Harvey) if they were even more attentive to each note of music. You could hear pop structures if you actually compare it to real works, such as "Golden Hours" with Q Lazzarus "Goodbye Horses." This is the definition of art rock, like walking through an art exhibition. Each song paints a different environment and places you in a unique setting, and yet each one is peaceful or at the very least introspective if you're the anxious "In Dark Trees." You're never overwhelmed or carried by intense emotions, though songs do get fairly close with their beauty. This is achieved by Eno's careful use of space and minimal instrumentation, serving as a forerunner toward his ambient work. It feels like a rollercoaster you can barely handle as long as you don't close your eyes. For the novel listeners, there are a few pop songs dispersed to help audiences become familiar with his style and approach. With perfect track transitions, it only takes a few listens to appreciate at least most of the tracks. One of my favorite things about this album is that 7 of the first 9 tracks don't even run longer than about 3 minutes, and those other 2 tracks are the opener (excusable as we use it to gauge the album) and the catchiest track "I'll Come Running", so audiences wouldn't mind those. What we get instead is a slideshow of Eno's different ideas before we reach his more intricate, refined works near the end, starting with the masterpiece "Golden Hours." Favorites: St Elmo's Fire, The Big Ship, Another Green World, Little Fishes, Golden Hours, Zawinul Lava, Spirits Drifting

This album represents a transition period in Brian Eno’s career at the crossroads between his earlier rock music and later ambient and experimental music. The result is one of the most important and influentials albums of the 1970s. This album uses quite a bit of repeating patterns and slowly builds on that. The use of electronic sounds is never intrusive and does not take date the album. The result is something that is absurdly beautiful and groundbreaking. I loved every second of it.

There's another green world. The world of snake guitars, desert guitars, choppy organs, spasmodic percussions, uncertain piano, and of course unnatural sounds. Observe those critters in the strange world. Sombre reptiles, little fishes, spirits drifting... trying to create something. A formless, directionless sound. But I'm telling you, everytime the sound gets full and complete, it's sublime. It's otherworldly, you might say.

I love Brian Eno and this is a brilliant record. Its bold and so packed with interesting ideas it can barely contain them all. You could accuse it of maybe jumping around a bit too much but I think that's part of what give it its charm. This is Brian Eno taking his influences and inventing modern ambient music before your very ears. My two standout tracks are The Big ship, an incredible though provoking swell of sawtooth synths and galloping drums. The Big Ship also contains some guitar work which is shockingly prescient of what would become post rock decades later. Second is Becalmed which would have sounded equally at home on his later Ambient works or indeed an underworld album from the 90's. Not my ultimate favourite Eno work but to say that on about an album which is this incredibly shows you how brilliant Eno's career is.

5.0 + This album retains Eno's abstruse sensibilities but with pop flourishes to make it probably the best entry point into his incredible catalog. Every song is a beautifully conceived composition such that it's hard to pinpoint any standouts. But my pulse always quickens when I hear the atmospheric dirge of "In Dark Trees" and the sweet chorus of "I'll Come Running" followed by the strange guitar/synth solo. Such an immersive and layered listen filled with ear candy.

Замечательная минималистичная электронщина, в которую идеально время от времени вживляются живые инструменты. Брайан Ино действительно опередил время с этим альбомом, ведь он предугадал звук почти что каждой второй инди-бедрум-поп группы нашего времени аж за 50 лет до появления таких групп. Хоть и начинается это произведение довольно бодро, большая его часть спокойная и умиротворённая. Меланхоличные тексты идеально переплетаются с ненавязчивыми мотивами и спокойными мелодиями, голос Брайана максимально расслаблен, что только сильнее подчёркивает по-простому добрую атмосферу этого альбома. Музыкальный эквивалент чашки зелёного чая. (9)

What an album. I was not expecting this but in hindsight based on the album cover I should have. iTunes says this is rock but the only rock I hear is me mining to this very Minecraft-esque music. I love the way there are certain songs with vocals (wasn’t a fan) and other songs that are just short instrumentals. I got Minecraft vibes in Another Green World and Red Dead Redemption vibes in Sombre Reptiles. Just a very eclectic mix of synths and instruments to make this my most surprising album of the week. My Favs were Over Fire Island, The Big Ship, Another Green World, and Sombre Reptiles. Hope we get another album of his on here.

Glaube, das hier muss konzentriert UND mit gutem Sound gehört werden, dann kickt das richtig. Legt jedenfalls einiges an/nimmt vorweg, wohin die Reise kurz danach für z.B.

I actually really enjoyed this album. The soundscapes were soothing but also musically interesting enough to not let my mind wander too far.

Will definitely listen to this album and artist again.

The title track is one of those tracks, like The Smiths' 'please please let me get what I want', that is really short but you wish could go on forever. It used to be the BBC Arena title song and I always associate it with the Van Morrison documentary 'One Irish Rover' which was shown on that platform, I even used to think it was a Van Morrison instrumental but since found it was Eno's. Interestingly Eno influenced the man's early 80's albums like Beautiful Vision and Inarticulate Speech of the Heart. Anyway this album is great and does a real good job of invoking a melancholy mood.

Dosta je poznato da je Brian Eno ima najviše prstiju u stvaranju Bowieve Berlinske Trilogije zato mi svakako početna pjesma "Sky Saw" podsjeća da bi pasala na album Low (1977) od Bowiea. Definitivno najdraža stvar sa albuma je St Elmo's Fire, iako sam više poklonik ambijentalnoj strani Eno-a pa je stoga Zawinul/Lava divnoća čista. Album koji je stvoren za ugodno, lijepo vrijeme, sa svojim elektronsko, artističkim popom sa mnogo ambienta koji ga je i kroz karijeru pratilo. 4.0/5

Electronic music from 1975, people back then must have HATED this. Really interesting music, well made, definitely before his time. I can't imagine the limitations he had to put this together back then. Lots of unconventional structures to the sound. Some songs are very ambient and great for background noise while working, others are more busy. Good album, first time hearing Eno's music though I've heard the name a lot.

This is a great album, tbf its a masterpiece you can loads of different sounds in here (notably bowie of course) as this was enos 'transitional' album, though its often called one of his vocal albums. Its actually more instrumental than vocal and i have heard it called impressionsitic and i dont really have a better term tbf, little fishes puts me in mind of koi, the big ship of a big ship and so on. Its been ages since i have listened to this and i forgot how 'proto-ambient' it is so its good to hear again. Its basically a masterpiece.

I liked both the instrumental and lyrical songs on this album. Some of the sounds come across as annoying, but overall there are a lot of parts that are incredible. The lyrics can be a bit generic/unspecific in parts, but they at least pair well with the songs. Highlights: 3, 5, 8, 10, and 11.

I like Eno a lot, though I think this is occasionally marred by the extremity of experimentalism. Sure beats the alternative of course.

I dug this. I can’t make up my mind if all these songs make some sort of cohesive sense or not, but I didn’t dislike the experience. I also had no idea that the “St. Elmo’s Fire” song on here was called that, because ya know… 80’s movies. But I might like this Elmo better than the other one? Maybe? I don’t know - I probably should give that more thought before committing to that on the record.

There are clear echoes of Eno’s work with Roxy Music, David Bowie and Talking Heads/David Byrne on Another Green World. They’re the obvious references, I’m sure there’s tons more, not to mention the recognisable influences on the electronica and ambient music genres in general. There’s also what feels like a subtle oriental bent to many of the tracks which I quite like. The overall effect is a minimalistic, at times uneasy but overall dreamy, ethereal, and accessible oasis of calm for 41 minutes.

Really liked it, nice atmosphere and all. Favourite track: everything merges with the night

On the surface, this album verges on feeling unfocused and directionless, but Eno somehow makes this collection of songs feel purposeful and coherent. I'm really interested in the "oblique strategies" cards he uses to construct songs

This project has been my introduction to Eno, and I'm starting to understand the impact he had on music. This feels like a transitional album, and I do prefer the more traditional songs which preceded it. But there's also absolutely sonic magic, portals to other worlds heard. Those portals are one-per-song most of the time, but occasionally cross track boundaries.

Much like the other album.. it’s really good in places but wanders perilously close to self indulgent at times…. Yeah pretty decent!

Really enjoyed this one! I've not really listened to Mr Eno, I only really know him from his collaboration with Bowie but I really liked this so I'll definitely dive deeper in the eno-verse.
