"Dayal's unique and fresh take, which also delves into Discreet Music, is a must read for Eno fans and makes a great primer for the uninitiated."
"Dayal's lucid, elegant deconstruction of Brian Eno's most beguiling album is also an inspiring, delightful inquiry into the nature of creativity and constraint. Anyone interested in art making needs to read this."
—Ed Park, author of Personal Days
Mention in Nottingham Evening Post, February 2010

And then, I started listening to Another Green World, a lot. OVER AND OVER. Dayal mentioned this occupation herself, claiming that she has possibly listened to this album more times than Eno has, which, I suspect, is not a difficult task to accomplish.
Do artists listen to their own work as much as we listen to their work?
Dayal has shared emails with Eno, and in one, he said that he does not like looking back and avoids doing it. However, Geeta Dayal's book inspired me to look back, to start listening to Another Green World repeatedly. I also try to imagine how my life would have been different had I discovered this album in 1975 or even 1976. Would I have been able to appreciate it at the age of 13 or 14?
And the more I listen, the more I cannot get enough of it. I want to listen more. And so I do. And then I think I should listen to something else, and I just go back to this album again. I am not tired of it.
