4 stars Another Green Wrld was the first real step Brian Eno takes directly into the direction he became famous for: ambient/eletronic music. From this album on he dropped his rock/glam ambitions and takes another turn into a more quiet and subtle kind of music. The first track is the only link with the two previous works, and even then, not much. The remaining tunes are much more quiet and very well crafted. the musicanship of all involved is superb (even if the music does not show anything fleshy or obvious). Production, as expected, is top notch!

The majority of the album is instrumental, but there a few good singing parts like St. Elmo's Fire (probably his best ŽnormalŽ song in this CD) and Golden Hours. There is even some humored stuff like IŽll Come Running. But the best ones are the short, lyrical, quiet stuff like The Big Ship. They are all very good and quite groundbreaking for the time. I wonder the impact it must have had. The minimalistic, and melodic, approach is something to hear with care and atention. One of the truly ambient albums and one that is pleasant and hamrmonic structure enough to almost any person to hear and appreciate It. Another Green World serves very well as an introduction to the genre.

An excellent addition to any prog music collection, even if youŽre not really an eletronic music fan like me. Rating: 3.5 to 4 stars.
