It's Just Another Day On Earth

Image Hosted by ImageShack.us


Brian Eno has a new album out called Another Day On Earth. It's his first vocal album since the late '70s when he went all ambient on everything. What to say about Eno that hasn't already been said - electronic pioneer of ambient music, Roxy Music and those outrageous outfits, David Bowie, Talking Heads, U2, blah blah blah. The man is a legend in popular music, his new record is a lovely, dreamy album of near lullabies, with a few songs having some vaguely funky beats. The title track is Just Another Day and it's a perfect example of everything that the man is about - a hazy filtered beat, banks of keys softly building, playing ethereal melodies, and his distinctive vocals floating over everything. Relax and enjoy...

Don't forget his production work with James. They weren't as big outside the UK as they should have been, but they were consistently good - and kept getting better right up to the end.
