4 stars Producer extraordinaire and studio wunderkind Brian Eno serves up an ideal amalgam of his pop and ambient stylings and experimentations on 2005's ANOTHER DAY ON EARTH.

Lead track "This" is danceable and infectious, with a funky bass line and ultra-modern beats, but the next number, "And Then So Clear" gives us synthesized vocals, and gentle, lovely music. The other nine tracks are by turns eerie, soothing, spacey and uplifting. There are vocals on every track, and Eno's voice (with some help from others) is immediately recognizable and as good as ever. Everything is meticulously crafted, of course, with layers upon layers, depth upon depth. This is great music for lounging, reading (sci fi would especially suit), dreaming, drifting, looking down upon the earth from your space station, or just floating weightlessly through the ether.

My favourite number is the catchy, almost nursery rhyme-like "How many Worlds," which features some gorgeous violin and lyrics which make my jaded eyes mist over. Quote: "How many worlds will we ever see, and how many people will we ever be, if we wake up?" That's the big question, isn't it? What a beautiful, profound yet simple -- and essential -- song!

This is a fine CD. If you've ever been an Eno fan, or you'd like a latter-day intro to his many musical worlds and soundscapes, opt for ANOTHER DAY ON EARTH.
