Today’s Yesterday Album – ‘ANOTHER GREEN WORLD’ By BRIAN ENO (1975)

5 September 2023

Artist: BRIAN ENO
Album: ANOTHER GREEN WORLD
Released: 1 September 1975 – his 3rd studio LP

Pitchfork wrote: “The most remarkable thing about Another Green World, is how a stoic Englishman who showed no interest in the conventional expression of emotion managed to make something that feels so intensely personal. This is the nature of ‘Another Green World’s romance: Not what one person does or says for another, but the bond created between two people bearing witness to something bigger than both of them: Not love but wonder. Brian Eno has done everything from producing huge pop stars to creating tiny art installations to touring with rock bands to inventing ambient music. ‘Another Green World’ remains his definitive album.” Score: 10/10 – Full review here.

TUTV: “Eno was/is one of the original sound-exploring wizards ever, for himself
and as a producer for many others. Ambient music is his favorite playground.

FRED AGAIN… Teams Up With His Mentor BRIAN ENO For Trance Trip Album ‘SECRET LIFE’

Standout longplayers

14 May 2023

Artists: FRED AGAIN… and BRIAN ENO
New album: SECRET LIFE

NME says: “Introduced by a friend of his who happened to be Eno’s neighbour, 16-year-old Fred Gibson started attending some of Eno’s legendary a capella performances at his home, going on to become his unofficial protégé… Eno lets his protégé take the narrative reins, laying soundscapes behind Fred’s soft-focus storytelling. This surprise album – despite its frequent beauty – works best as a puzzle piece rather than a standout record in its own right.”
Score: 3/5.

TUTV: Weird collaboration? No, certainly not. The very popular EBM/house/hip-hop/DJ FRED and legendary sound wizard ENO complete each other here on this surprise album. They created a sonic labyrinth where Eno‘s hallucinatory ambient waves progress in slow motion causing a trance trip in a foggy environment and Fred‘s rare (ghostly) vocals seem to come from his mysterious universe. A hushed, soothing soundtrack for late-night mind-entertainment after a busy day and too much noisy music. 4/5.

2022: A Space Odyssey – BRIAN ENO Created Music For Nightdreamers On ‘FOREVERANDEVERMORE’

Standout longplayers

20 October 2022

Renowned musician-songwriter-producer BRIAN ENO (born, take a deep breath,
Brian Peter George St John le Baptiste de la Salle Eno, 74 years ago and once upon a time
the alien lookalike who played keys with Roxy Music) has his 22nd solo LP out. It’s baptized FOREVERANDEVERMORE with Eno singing on it for the first time in years (his daughter does backing vocals here and there).

The Guardian (British newspaper): “Personal, intimate and urgent. The producer contemplates the future of the planet on these heartbreaking songs shot through with
wonder… Eno’s new album, his 22nd, is an emotional contemplation of environmental catastrophe. It’s as huge and enveloping as you’d hope, its undulating soundscapes suffused with longing and wonder. But there is a mournful quality, too, something heartbreakingly elegiac about these songs. There Were Bells was composed for an event at the Acropolis in Athens last year, performed on a sweltering 45-degree day; as Eno recalls: “I thought, here we are at the birthplace of modern civilisation, probably witnessing the end of it.”
Score: 4/5.

TUTV: FOREVERANDEVERMORE is one long ambient trip into space
for nightdreamers. Moony candlelight music for dark winter days.

Singles: We Let In / There Were Bells

BRIAN ENO Released His Aural Adventure ‘NERVE NET’ 30 Years Ago Today

Back in time

1 September 2022

Artist: BRIAN ENO
Born in Suffolk, England 74 years ago
Active: Since 1970 / 28 solo studio and numero 29,
entitled FOREVERANDEVERMORE
lands on 14 October.

Anniversary album: NERVE NET – his 12th LP
Released: 1 September 1992 – 30 years ago today

Pitchfork said: “Nerve Net, which is more obviously a product of its time than any other Eno record. It’s roughly half-vocal, half-instrumental, and half-baked. The vocals are generally not Eno’s, and mostly spoken; the instrumental tone is cold and brittle (although a couple of Robert Fripp guitar solos briefly light a fire on its surface); the synthesizer tones are the presets of their moment.” Score 7.5/10.

TUTV: Trippy vibes, spacious vibes, funky vibes and ambient vibes. All entwined in a sheeny synth mix of dreamy symphonies that play on your inner stereo in your head
with a mind-relaxing reverberation. As with so many Eno longplayers you experience an aural adventure. Wonderful!

BRIAN ENO Canned A New Album – Hear First Single ‘THERE WERE BELLS’ Here

New striking strokes

28 July 2022

Musician-songwriter-producer (and once upon a time the alien lookalike who played
keys with Roxy Music) has a new album out in October. His first since 2017 LP Reflection.
It’s baptized FOREVERANDEVERMORE. Pre-order info here.

It’s the first longplayer in years that he sings on.

The first single THERE WERE BELLS is a familiar-sounding ambient
piece with Eno’s vocals making it resonate like a religious chant.

He wrote it after a performance with his brother in Greece last year.

Eno: “I thought, here we are at the birthplace of Western civilization, probably witnessing
the end of it. Like everybody else — except, apparently, most of the governments of the world. I’ve been thinking about our narrowing, precarious future, and this music grew out of those thoughts. Perhaps it’s more accurate to say I’ve been feeling about it… The music grew out of the feelings. Those of us who share those feelings are aware that the world is changing at a super-rapid rate, and that large parts of it are disappearing forever, hence the album title.”
