4 stars Another Green World is one of the more accessible albums put together by Brian Eno, if not for any other reason than the handful of pop tracks ("St. Elmo's Fire", "I'll Come Running", "Everything Merges With The Night", "Golden Hours") present among the harsh electronic experimentalism. The experimental tracks outnumber the pop tracks, but those experimental tracks aren't inaccessible drones or ambience; rather, they are slightly harsh electronic and instrumental sonic experiments that are relatively short in length, but are full of power and odd effects. But besides the obvious presence of Brian Eno, a few popular names in progressive rock make some interesting appearances, such as Robert Fripp, Percy Jones, Phil Collins and John Cale. And their roles on this album aren't peripheral; they stand out greatly within the music and really add elements to the music that Eno himself would never have been able to create.

I initially didn't care much for this album, because of the pop songs (which really are sort of experimental anyway), but it grew on me and now I can see that this album is actually of impressive quality. This is definitely one of the best starter-points for potential Eno fans.

Highly recommended.
