In July , Brian Eno found himself a few days and several thousand dollars into a studio booking with nearly nothing to show for it. His first two solo albums, Here Come the Warm Jets and Taking Tiger Mountain by Strategy , had reimagined glam rock as sound sculpture and established Eno not just as a practitioner of pop, but a theoretician of it: Someone whose music doubled as a blueprint for how music could be made.
In interviews he came off as part drag courtesan and part professor emeritus, scissoring his legs in feathers and sequins while dishing about the thrills of aleatoric composition, shaping ideas few people had heard before into forms anyone could understand.
Jets and Tiger Mountain bookended a year—November to November —during which Eno released three other, collaborative albums. At the time he conceived of Discreet Music , just a few months before he found himself panicked on the studio floor, Eno was lying in a London hospital after being hit by a taxi.

Although long numbers are certainly no rarity in rock, the music was weaned on two- or three-minute performances. This artist is quite comfortable with this structure and content to stay with it. Eno insists on risks, and that they so consistently pan out is a major triumph. I usually shudder at such a description, but Another Green World is indeed an important record — and also a brilliant one.Another Green World is the third studio album by English musician Brian Eno (credited simply as "Eno"), released by Island Records in September Produced by Eno and Rhett Davies, it features contributions from a small core of musicians including Robert Fripp (guitar), Phil Collins (drums), Percy Jones (fretless bass), and Rod Melvin (piano).
