3 stars "Another Green World" is the 3rd full-length studio album by UK art/ambient rock artist Brian Eno. The album was released through Island Records in September 1975.

The music on "Another Green World" sees a departure from the art pop/rock sound of the two previous albums "Here Come The Warm Jets (1973)" and "Taking Tiger Mountain (By Strategy) (1974)" and introduces a much more experimental, ambient and predominantly instrumental music style. Only 5 of the 14 tracks feature lyrics and those 5 tracks are the only tracks that remind me slightly of the style of music on the two predecessors. Itīs mostly because of Brian Enoīs voice and vocal lines though as the music itself are far removed from the music on the more organic sounding predecessors. The music on "Another Green World" features a cold sound and some tracks are ambient and solely made up of electronic sounding beats and keyboards/synths. While large portions of the album are truly a solo effort, Brian Eno is helped out on some tracks by guest musicians like John Cale, Phil Collins and Robert Fripp.

The musicianship is generally excellent on the album. For the first time since Brian Eno went solo itīs obvious that this is a keyboard playerīs solo album. Not that there are any keyboard solo noodling on the album or anything like that but Brian Eno presents some really innovative and experimental playing ideas and sounds on the album while still maintaining an element of accessibility. The sound production must have seemed futuristic at the time of the albumīs release. Some parts of the album sound like they were produced in the eighties.

Upon conclusion "Another Green World" is a good quality release by Brian Eno and quite a different sounding album compared to itīs two predecessors. A bold move by Brian Eno. A 3.5 star (70%) rating is deserved.
