1 stars Before and After Science is Brian Eno's album of quirky pop inspired tunes. First of all, Eno was never a great vocalist, and he lets that fact shine proudly on this album. The majority of the tracks here are noisy and banal pop songs with simple musicianship and uninteresting electronic sounds. I'm not sure what made Eno decide to make this album and stop creating captivating experimental soundscapes, but this album really has always been a let down. The best thing about this album is the presence of the "Green World supergroup" as I like to call it (Percy Jones, Robert Fripp, Phil Collins), and also including Fred Frith among other musicians. Unfortunately, they don't stand out enough to make this album the least bit more of a good album.

If you're more into punky pop music with slightly experimental electronic noises, then this is a definite win. I'm for sure not sold on this brand of pop-punk-noise, and this isn't considered one of Eno's best, so I feel safe in saying that this album can be skipped.
