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. So interesting to think of this being released in the 70s and how it would have been received. 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.

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.

Situations- und soundabhängiges Ding. Gestern abgelenkt im Auto gehört: 4,5. Heute halbwegs konzentriert auf schlechten Boxen im Büro: 3,2. 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. Bowie oder auf Music for Airports weiter ging. Beide auch nicht einfach, aber sehr gern von mir gehört. Entscheide auf Mittelwert und nehme mir fest vor, auch die hier noch genauer zu untersuchen (wenn endlich Zeit dafür ist, in ca. 970 Tagen ...)

I actually really enjoyed this album. The soundscapes were soothing but also musically interesting enough to not let my mind wander too far. I have only ever encountered Brian Eno as a producer for others, and in that capacity I believe that folks of our generation are perhaps have encountered his influence even beyond our own realization in music and perhaps even film. 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 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.

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.

Kinda all over the place, but in a good way. This eclectic approach has varying results, but my interest is always piqued and my patience is frequently rewarded. AGW finds efficient and adventurous means to its earworms - it’s texturally rich, diverse, and unabashedly quirky. Songs that didn’t click immediately fell into favor after just a couple spins, a testament to Eno’s strange yet comforting pop sensibilities. 4

I like how this is kind of a best of both worlds situation- Eno is really embracing his newfound appreciation for synth/atmospheric music, while still making a couple of tunes in the vein of Roxy Music and his earlier solo stuff. I found myself geling more with the latter this time, but his minimalist stuff is still pretty impressive to listen to. I can understand if it’s not your thing or if you’re so used to later electronic music that you find it derivative, but I’m all in. Still, this is never going to raise above “sometimes” music for me. B+

As the cover art implies, this is a very quirky, artsy record with strange sound design and production, but it is pretty captivating. Some of the more straightforward songs with Eno's singing sound too goofy ("St. Elmo's Fire", "I'll Come Running", "Golden Hours"), I am much more into the songs focusing on creating fascinating soundscapes ("In Dark Trees", the gorgeous "The Big Ship", "Sombre Reptiles").

Another artist I'd heard a lot about but never sat down and listened to an album... And am glad I did, it has a lot of the atmospheric "ambient" sounds you'd expect, but I have to admit I thought it was going to be a lot more boring! Layered, doesn't outstay its welcome, a real pleasure to listen to.

Eno's early solo records feel like the work of someone who's heard about pop music, been told about pop music and how it generally works, decided to have a go at doing that himself and... wound up making something else. This may be where he comes closest, which means it's still kind of removed from "actual" pop. Fantastic stuff, though, and appropriate that I got this one on Eno's birthday too.

2.5 | Es un disco que se hace la vida difícil. Las primeras tres canciones no son nada amigables para la primera vez que se escucha, si se le da la oportunidad va avanzando a sonidos más etéreos y a mostrar la habilidad de Eno para hacer música ambiental. Todas las canciones muestran bastante maestría e ingenio tanto en su composición como en las técnicas usadas, especialmente para ser 1975. Mi problema es que sigue siendo un disco y música muy para situaciones en particular, es música ambiental super bien hecha pero sigue siendo ambiental, si no está uno de humor puede ser aburridísimo. Música muy interesante, letras sin sentido que hasta casi sobran. Ideal para cuando quieran subir un videito de 10 horas con peces en el arrecife a YouTube.

Certaines pistes ont une sonorité très cinématographique. Je pourrais facilement placer quelques pièces instrumentales dans un film de science fiction et d'autres me font simplement demander mais pourquoi ?! Album plutôt varié, peut-être un peu intense à écouter à 7h25 le matin.. On dirait que je suis tout le temps sur le bord d'aimer ça mais je ne suis pas certaine.. Mention spéciale pour sombre reptiles qui est parfaite pour faire de l'écriture automatique.

J’ai bien aimé l’album, musique très créative et d’ambiance. Par contre, contrairement au jazz tu dois porter attention et vraiment être focus pendant l’écoute pour apprécier. Par contre je ne comprends pas que cet album est dans le palmarès bien qu’il soit bon. Il s’agit vraiment plus d’une musique de niche qui ne joint pas monsieur tout le monde. Je l’évite st-elmo fire, golden hours Je lévite i’ll come running (pas mal la Seule toune normale) sombre retire et in dark trees

I like it - alternating between dreamy "70s future" music and nice pop tunes. I'm not sure how memorable it is tho ... ? --> I wrote that before giving it a few more listens today and even though background listening might be what it is best for (that's not a bad thing!) I really started hearing more that I loved upon second listen. That guitar (Robert Fripp!) in both St Elmo's Fire and Golden Hours really stands out. Another plus having Phil Collins guesting on a few cuts (but of course Phil guested on ~43% of other artists' from 1975-1985. Facts.). Speaking of Phil, I definitely hear some crossover between this album and Genesis' "Lamb Lies Down on Broadway" which was released less than a year before this and on which Eno contributed some "Enossification" Strong 3 stars - I'll be coming back to this one.

I love Brian Eno’s ambient work but haven’t ventured much into his earlier rock. There are hints of brilliance here and there, but it’s just not the easiest to listen to. There’s a time and place for this album, and that’s hard to know when. Favorite: Golden Hours, Everything Merges With the Night, The Big Ship Least Favorite: In Dark Trees

Great background/study music for the most part. It's a nice album. I enjoyed it, but I'm not sure why it is on this list. I'll have to listen a few times more I think. In 2012, Rolling Stone ranked the album number 429 on its list of the 500 greatest albums of all time. Standouts: I'll Come Running (I guess?) It's the only song that I remember after listening to the whole album.

The first few songs made me want to claw my ears off. However, as the album progressed, it got more relaxing and ambient, which was nice to listen to. The only complaint I have of the later songs are that the voice doesn't contribute much and felt like it went against the style and feel that the backing music was going for. Favorite track: The Big Ship

More like Brian EMO, am I right? I like the song about excitedly running to tie someone's shoes and the one that inspired the Judd Nelson Brat Pack movie. Oddly enough, I don't care for many of the brief instrumental interludes a young Phil Collins plays on. As is the case with all things Eno, this is all about feel. And this feels right in the 2.5 wheelhouse. I still wish Eno covered "Man In Motion" from the St. Elmo's Fire film.

Genre: Art Rock 3/5 From a musical history standpoint, there are few more pivotal to pop/rock than Brian Eno, who was a big mover and shaker in the music scene. Eno was a pioneer in ambient music, something that hadn’t been truly explored in mainstream music before. Another Green World is heralded as a masterpiece of the form, and one of the all-time greats from the decade, but to me is a little too full of itself, and a little too uneven in all the wrong ways. A few great songs littered amongst short bursts of electronic ideas that don’t fully pan out. While I may not have enjoyed this as much as I had expected (or hoped) to, I recommended this for others who are interested in listening to as much recent music history as possible.

Looking at the production of this album, it's amazing. Overall, however, the songs don't stand out a ton to me. I really love the ambient stuff far more than the lyrical pieces, and so that's where I feel the album shines.

Like this early post Roxy stuff so much more than his later ambient approach. The King Crimson like guitar led (not surprising with Robert Fripp on Guitar) tracks are so much more fulfilling than some of the more sparse tracks. You can track Eno's evolution from Here Come The Warm Jets to Ambient 1(Music for Airports) on this bridging album. Loved "St Elmo's Fire" With Fripps "electric" guitar playing, title Track "Another Green World" which is familiar as the title track for the BBC arts strand "Arena" and "I'll Come Running" A good album and can see why it is on this list.

I wasn't really sold on the last Brian Eno album here, hope this one is better. (and lol @ the German guy who called it "das Album für Flughafentoiletten", ich fand's auch Kacke) Ok this isn't really ambient like the last one. This is just weirdness. I guess it's kinda avant garde or something? I'm sure if I had the ear for it, it'd be a masterpiece... but I don't. I just prefer songs that sound like songs, I guess.

I've listened to this album at four separate times over about 15 years, each time coming away with a feeling that perhaps I'm missing something, as I just can't hear the qualities that make this a highly acclaimed album. To my ears, the instrumentals lack a melodic focus as they just don't really go anywhere, and the ones with lyrics feel like tuneless drafts of songs. This time around I'm secure in my knowledge that the music of Brian Eno and my own ears are just not that compatible. And I'm fine with that. Thanks anyway, Brian :-)

This is the third album by Brian Eno. It marked his transition from rock music toward ambient instrumental music. This album in particular can be described as art rock/pop with a dash of minimalist ambient music. This album is calmer than previous Eno albums, with melodic instrumental sections and lyrics on only 5 tracks. Although the critical reception for the album was favorable, it failed to chart in any country besides New Zealand. It seems like many listeners - including myself - were looking for something more fast paced than this dream-like escape into a peaceful, mirrored dimension.
