Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

British illustrator Mills has used the music and lyrics of all of avant-garde musician Brian Eno's songs as the basis for the 57 mixed-media interpretations reproduced here (all in full color). Mills's surreal creations are rarely literal renditions of the texts, but rather represent personal interpretations, sometimes informed by Eno's commentary. They therefore can stand independently of the songs. Each illustration is accompanied by Eno's lyrics (most published here for the first time), along with notes by both Eno and Mills and extracts from their notebooks, illuminating the thought processes and working methods behind the songs and images. Poynor contributes five essays on Eno's artistic theory and practice. A fascinating, visually beautiful document. Mark H. Sullivan, Univ. of Detroit Lib.

Format: Hardcover
I bought this book when it was first published in 1986, and it changed my life. Too bad it's out of print! The text is very well-written, explaining how the influences on Eno & Mills--Duchamp, Cage, and the Dadaists in particular--were synthesized by these two contemporary artists. Eno's lyrics are still some of the best rock music has produced--strange juxtapositions, fragmented narratives, electronic haikus that are still very funny and disturbing. Eno explains the genesis of many of them in this volume, which is rare--he's a very private person. We also get facsimiles of pages of his 1970s notebooks, revealing how he searched for novel methods of evoking the creative impulse in himself and others in his work as one of the most distinctive record producers.

I have been listening and collecting Eno since I was 13. I came across this book online and was excited to get it until I read it. I guess beauty is in the eye of the beholder. I didnt see it here though. Keep in mind this is an older work and not really Brian Eno's work as well. It is one person's interpritaion of another persons creativity. I found the art works dated and not to my taste. I guess I really shouldn't be surprised though. I am sure other people would not understand my interpritaions if I were to creat art inspired by Brian Eno as well. It's all relative.

Format: Paperback
This book contains roger mills's images created in response to brian eno songs. Many are beautiful, more are ugly, all are interesting. Also included are several pages of facinating notes on brian's creative processes. A must-have for die-hard eno fans.
