Another Green World is Brian Eno’s transitional record from glam rock to the ambient minimalism that he would later be more recognized for, and essential listening for any music fan. It is a hybrid album that isn’t lost in its footing but an amalgam of his best musical efforts, before and after. The record is heavily guided by Eno’s own Oblique Strategies, an experimental approach to creating music that focuses on experiences rather than musical content. Some examples include tape your mouth, abandon normal instruments, reverse the tape, and honor thy error as a hidden intention. The result is a singular and lush sound built from unconventional recording techniques, and arguably Eno’s most definitive record.
