Prog Reviewer
4 stars (One star added after more careful consideration!) Follower of the great Another Green World. Seeing the track list now, I think AGW is better after all. I accidentally voted this as my favourite in the forum as I recalled some of the finest songs being here, but there are also some less enjoyable tracks, and when it comes to the short, sound experimentative instrumental beauties, AGW offers much better stuff. I think this is more uneven, but especially for those who like Eno's SONGS it's one of the definitive classics just as well. 'Julie with...' is an ethereal song about a man and a woman "floating on an open sea, the radio is silent, so are we"... Ah, magic! And 'Here He Comes' is a lively, fresh sounding song that makes you feel extremely happy with its somehow surreal lyrics. By the way, a very good selection of Eno's best work - collaborations with e.g. John Cale included - is collected in 3-CD package titled 'Vocal' (which does have also instrumentals).
