I can't remember the last time I felt this way about an album.
B. Pearce
Here, the genius behind that much criticized musical experiment is finally realized in a much more accessible and satisfying form.

If you're a fan of Enos' ongoing collaborations this would rank as one of the best according to, well, me I guess.

Brian Eno and Karl Hyde are creating disturbing, beautiful songs with a sense of wonder and wilderness. Brian knows how to look for exit signs on old, well-trodden paths. Getting lost is a heartfelt need. For both of them. Between the blurred edges of England's old soil and another blue world, "the satellites sing songs / The days run into one / I need the sound of cars / To drown the quiet sun".

It's an album that grows with time. Opposite emotions co-exist in the same frame, there are second and third bottoms in tracks that offer dark lyrics on one side, but warm, lush, embracing tunes on the other. The songs are full of existential issues without simple messages. Death, childhood, love, missed opportunities, a strange take on the creation of the world, a lullaby (with two bleak four-liners) for our endlessly numbered days.

The music is full of twists and turns, never a simple formula, always an element of surprise - and excellent singing. I've heared these nine songs for four weeks now, and for all their diversity, their hidden corners, their singalong qualities, their joyous melodies, their mix of harshness and sweetness, it has become quite an addictive experience. You can find my interview with both artists on manafonistas.de. (entry: May 1st) It's a long one, in four parts. And it's, up to this point in time, the only one. And you'll find a lot of the lyrics there.

Take the best of what you remember of classic vocal Eno (Another Green World, Before and after Science, Taking Tiger Mountain by Storm, Here Come the Warm Jets ) add decades of maturity, new synth and vocal processing available through modern technology and you get a modern picture of true art in music. I love it. Keep making more.

Eno's collaborations are often his best or most groundbreaking works (My Life in the Bush of Ghosts, Wrong Way Up, No Pussyfooting ). This one is more ground-recovering than groundbreaking, and unlikely to be listed as one of Eno's greatest works. And yet, it is a most enjoyable and worthwhile listen, a 5 star effort that grows richer and more satisfying with each listening. Though Hyde takes the majority of the actual writing credits, and most of the vocal duties, the whole is clearly identifiable as an Eno album.

It opens with "Satellites" which builds in a fashion reminiscent of "On Some Far Away Beach." But the component parts coalesce into an altogether more contemporary piece that little resembles that song from Eno's first solo release except in the over-arching structure and the feel of the percussion track. On first hearing, the staccato horns driven backing track had me uncertain I was going to like where this was going, but the arrival of Eno's vocal is a totally satisfying pay-off, and the track becomes one of the album's high points.

"Daddy's Car" feels like it could have been a lost track from Everything That Happens Will Happen Today. Yet, it is no second-string effort. The hyper, vaguely Latin percussion, which Eno has toyed with for some time now, is far more successful here than anywhere I've heard him employ it before.

"Witness" features the type of tight edgy vocal harmonies that spiced Wrong Way Up's "Crime In the Desert" (and alludes to that song's "honky-tonk" tack piano) then drops in the flat female vocal reciting a list, that Eno used on Another Day On Earth. Yet these recycled ideas don't feel stale; they seem to have matured into something fresh and energetic.

I've read some published reviews that commented on the seemingly haphazard way in which the songs on this release are arranged. I prefer to use the word disjointed, but done very well. Having listened to a wide range of Electronic and Industrial music over the years this album never lost me. I love this album precisely because of its disjointed nature. Someday World is a bit free form Jazz, Electronic, Big Band and New Wave jumbled together creating a sonic masterpiece evident after a few listens. Once the forest can be seen despite the trees the songs come to life, I'm already pretty addicted to it. One of my favorite albums of all time is Too Dark Park by Skinny Puppy, its a dark, twisted album where every track is essentially three or four songs layered on top of each other. Someday doesn't quite achieve that, however, it reminded me a lot of Park in a slightly less layered brighter form. The complexity of the arrangements is the shared link between the two in my view.

It's difficult to list tracks as standouts, Someday World is most effective when listened to completely. One song, though, does stand out a bit more luminously than the others and that would be Witness. Strangely enough its one of the most straight forward tracks on this release but its mesmerizing groove really draws me in. If you're a fan of Enos' ongoing collaborations this would rank as one of the best according to, well, me I guess. I do feel that many will come to the same conclusion if they give it the time and consideration it deserves. Hyde's turns at vocals are incredible and his contributions to filling out many of the bits and pieces Brian had lying around is self evident. They combined to create a true work of art in my humble opinion.
