4 stars Its hard to believe that to date, Another Day on Earth has only been reviewed 10 times. This is a masterpiece. An earlier reviewer called it the sum of Brian Eno's expereince. He has combined many skills developed from his prolific career. Has any other artist generated as much work - both his own work and his diverse collaborations.

The music generally has a majestic and haunting quiality. While some songs have sombre themes the overall mood is aspirational and uplifting. Gone is the detached bystander, now Eno is in the game of life with us - how many lips will we kiss today if we wake up. The keyboards are often ethereal with beautifully constructed solos. Another standout feature is his under-rated vocals. Its great to hear a deep and resonate voice. This is a standout track - upbeat, uplifting with a spiraling keyboard and a great groove from the percussion.

The album is divided between songs that are lyrically strong, such as Under and ambient pieces such as Its a Long Way Down. (The voice here is used as another instrument). Bottom liners is an insightful commentary on our economic system with the simplicity of Pink Floyd's Us and Them. The music has an hypnotic quality delivered with a sparse bass and percussion.

Just Another Day and Under are strong compositions with spacious percussion, and great melody and vocals.

Eno's impressive output exposes him to many artists and styles. I get the feeling he is still learning and we can expect more great music.
