It’s been 15 years since Brian Eno released a vocal album. All of the ambient stuff in the years between has been interesting and even gorgeous at times, but not sustaining in the way records like Another Green World have been (Green World still has the power to take me far, far away). Out of the blue (or into it), the just-released Another Day on Earth revives some of that spirit — ethereal synth washes, complexly layered vocals, Fripp-like guitar, melodies that simply float without sounding anemic… It’s not Green World, but it’s great to have the old Eno back again.
emusic has it, iTunes doesn’t. Amazon review. There’s also an Eno interview available for download (billed as a podcast, though I think content should have to be serialized to be billed as a “podcast”).
