iTunes Music Review - Another Day on Earth

  • Another Day on Earth

    • 10 out of 5
    • Brian Eno

    • In his first proper solo release since 1996's relatively cold "The Drop," Brian Eno has constructed a whimsical and ecclectic masterpiece which is arguably one of the year's strongest records thus far. "Another Day on Earth" hits the ground running with the rhythmic "This," a majestic pop piece that is the album's most accessible track. While the majority of the record's more ambient pieces may take a few listens to be truly appreciated, the real highlight is "How Many Worlds," a sobering epic of a song made complete by Nell Catchpole's sublime string arrangement. Lyrically, "Another Day on Earth" is all one would expect from Eno; a fine mix of an amusing and academic mangling of the English language and emotionally distant potency. Taken metaphorically, the lyrics to the title track, "Just Another Day," - One day we will put it all behind / We'll say that was just another time / We'll say that was just another day on Earth" - are therapeutic reminders of how small we are in the face of history.
