5 stars From the very opening beats to the professional production and sound quality to a new style for Eno's third album "Another Green World". Eno instals ambient-like-themes to Eno's glam-rock style from the first two albums, and even creates pure ambient abstract songs, infact most of the album seems real dreamy and can bring back memories, and then you hear Eno's voice which wakes you from that dream state, only to be given more. Released in 1975...

1. Sky Saw:::::: Trippy intro, makes my brain dance. I remember one time I was driving with my two friends Sean and Tyler and we were listing to this song and Sean didn't like it one bit, yet Tyler did; "great effects" he said. "That's crazy!" Includeds John Cale on Viola.

2. Over Fire Island:::::::: starts out with a bass solo, at a weird time signature, with peices of synth float from left to right, and from right to left.

3. St. Elmo's Fire:::::::: Very beautiful song, great musical arrangments includes Robert Fripp, in which he preforms his second best guitar solo ever_behind Babys On Fire_wonderful lyrics, great synth, great sync.

4. In Dark Tree's:::::::Ambience with a beat, remindes me of being in a dark forrest with wind blowing very fast through it. Very unusual, semi-dark and abstract.

5. The Big Ship:::::::: Quite possibly the best song on the album_close call between this and St. Elmo's Fire_ relaxing and soft, layers within layers flowing like water in a river.

6. I'll Come Running:::::::: If that song put you to sleep, this one will awake you. How can you forget that voice? Soft rock song, mellow pop song with Robert Fripp once again on guitar duties, "and I'll come running to tie your show... I'll come running to tie your shoe."

7. Another Green World:::::::: Ambient once again, perhaps the slowest softest song yet, Eno leads the song in synth, something he rarely did. Real song, but sweet.

8. Sombre Reptiles:::::::: Another great song, with synth as the main instument, accompanied by a rhythm generator, tape loops, and tape effects. My good friend sterling said: "I like the jungle feel this song has." And I agreed.

9. Little Fished:::::::: Short ambient song, no structure, beat, or rhythm. for the most part interesting, Mozart on acid.

10. Golden Hours::::::::: A rock song drenched with ambience, great vocal effort, extremely decent lyrics, good synth, and vocal effects, and the great viola effert from John Cale.

11. Becalmed:::::::::: One of the most ambient songs on the album, very relaxing, synth leads us with piano and echoed piano playing randomly in the bliss.

12. Zawinul/Lava:::::::::Anthoer real soft song, no synth leads here, just repeated piano notes with soothing sounds and swirls.

13 Everything Merges With The Night::::::::::: The last of the vocal songs, good vocals, good lead synth, acoustic guitars, pianos. This song brings good memories along with the good tunes.

To sum it up, this is Eno's masterwork, thou it's not my favorite, it's still his best album.
