Eno made his great leap forward with Another Green World. The theme here is slow motion: "Spirits Drifting," " The Big Ship," " Beclaimed." Listening to Green World's haikus to inertia, punctuated by instrumentals that unfold and entwine like ivy, is like watching a year go by in 45 minutes. Guitarist Robert Fripp shares Eno's sense of melody and rhythm as spatial, rather than linear, but he's more physical, and his playing feeds each song like chlorophyll. John Cale and Phil Collins(!) also thicken things up. But mostly, Eno just immerses himself in the multilayered soundscapes he shapes from elements sometimes recognizable as music, sometimes more like the hum of daily life. Lyrics surface like uninterpreted dreams, aiming for subconscious association. The resulting sense of spaciousness makes these songs feel quite intimate, although nearly impossible to " read" in any usual sense. As always when at his best, here Eno creats a mindscape that merges with the listener's own.
