3.0 out of 5 stars ...still a good read., 23 Nov 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Brian Eno's Another Green World (33 1/3) (Paperback)
Like most Eno fans I waited with baited breathe for Geeta Dayal's book. To be honest there is nothing new to offer in this book that hasn't been written elsewhere.
The problem lies in there being no new Eno interview and even if one had been procurred it is doubtful that the man himself could have shed any light, or offered anything new to offer, on the the making of the classic album.
Whilst the book does offer some new insights from bassist Percy Jones its reliance on quotes from other sources leaves one feeling let down.
Almost a third of the book deals with 'Discreet Music' that was released around the same time as AGN and is brought up to show that Eno was already leaning towards his Ambient music output (remember that the majority of AGN is instrumental anyway).
So, nothing new for Eno fans but like all the 33 1/3 books they are worth picking up and still make a good read.

Certainly not all of the 33 1/3 books are "worth picking up". This is a notoriously patchy series and contains some real stinkers - like the one on Drake's Pink Moon.
