This review is from: Brian Eno's Another Green World (33 1/3) (Paperback)
Sadly I can only agree with the other reviews on this page. This book massively over-promises and under-delivers. The back cover blurb is wonderful - but alas the words written there are the only good ones to be found. The best of these little books show fresh and deep critical analysis - the one on Wire's Pink Flag being the best example. But the author here offers neither. We learn in the foreword that she made several attempts at the text before settling on the current version. One can only imagine what the earlier manuscripts must have looked like. The problem is that there are no new ideas on display. There's barely any discussion at all of the music itself, and even then, it's nothing more than a rather literal description of what the music sounds like. This wonderful record deserves better. Such a shame.
