Format: Paperback
Sorry, I haven't read it yet. But I thought potential buyers might want to know that this book and the same author's book on Robert Fripp are both available for free download from the author's web site. An act of generosity that certainly deserves five stars.

8 of 8 people found the following review helpful By William Johnston VINE VOICE on January 21, 2010
Format: Paperback
Most of the writing on music that is non-Classical or non-Jazz is done by hacks who just happened to buy enough albums as kids and have enough of a vocabulary to get jobs with music magazines. They possess no real knowledge of music outside of their own highly subjective and fickle opinions. No matter how much they seem to know they are still just fashion designers for the industry. In this case we have a serious "rock" musician taken seriously and analyzed seriously by a serious musicologist. The author demostrates a knowledge of music outside of the pop/rock world and places Eno in this context. Short on biography, long on theory, this is a truly intelligent foray into the music of Brian Eno and is a shining example of what rock journalism could be. Alas, very few examples of "rock" musicians approach Eno in their worthiness of analysis.

Format: Paperback
This book is best for the fan who is also a home recording artist. It tackles Eno primarily in the studio and gives very clear descriptions of his techniques. There is even a glossary in the back. The book deals with his pre-1988 work and was originially a thesis paper so at times reads like one, dry. I enjoy Eno, but this book did nothing to enhance the "myth." Rather it made him human. Not bad, right?

Format: Paperback
Though this book is written more from a technical perspective, it provides interesting insights into the furtile, creative mind of Brian Eno. I would not recommend this book to anyone who doesn't have interest in musicology or the technical nature of music creation. However, for those who are interested, feast away.

8 of 10 people found the following review helpful By Matthew L. Moffett on July 15, 2000
Format: Paperback
Since very little is known of Eno's private life, this book takes a pretty good and professional look at his composing life, starting with Roxy Music and up to about 1990. The most interesting aspects are the clear explanations of Eno's techniques and concepts. I found many of the ideas and thoughts applicable to other art forms, and am using some of the ideas for work of my own now. Be warned that the book does assume the reader has a certain level of understanding of music theory and contemporary music, but there is still much to enjoy if you are a newcomer to these ideas.

Format: Paperback
The oblique views of the most famous non-musician at work. In which we are introduced to the frog vision concept, Erik Satie's musique d'ameublement, John Cage's sound pictures and of course Eno's own conceptual continuity. Never a dull moment within the realms of minimalism ? Yes, you read right. Clever, smart, and appealing.
