Brian Eno's Another Green World
It was the strange and mystical "Another Green World" (1975) that was the cosmic bridge between Old Eno and New Eno, between Rock and Ambient, between the guitar and the synthesizer, between the old world and electronic music as we know it. "Another Green World" was a total paradigm shift, an introduction to a new way of thinking: for Eno, and for the world of popular music. Geeta Dayal interviews Eno, and his many collaborators on the album. She digs into the album, excavates its odd past, and untangles how, exactly, it was a link to the future of electronic music - by foreshadowing how powerful, personal and emotional this music could be."Thirty-Three and a Third" is a series of short books about critically acclaimed and much-loved albums of the past 40 years. By turns obsessive, passionate, creative and informed, the books in this series demonstrate many different ways of writing about music.
