Not one to do things by halves, Brian Eno wrote and recorded over 100 songs for his fifth album Before and After Science narrowing them down to just the ten that appeared on this his fifth album. It was his last foray into rock music in the '70s as he concentrated more on ambient works but it was a record full of invention and nuance and with tracks like King's Lead Hat helped usher in new wave.

Before and After Science by Brian Eno

9/10 Jack 28th January 2015

Eno's first four solo albums are all among the most underrated releases of the 1970s. Experimental, catchy and genre-hopping releases similar to that of contemporary David Bowie over the same period. Before and After Science might even be the pick of the bunch, combining the best elements of Taking Tiger Mountain and Another Green World. Eno's slightly thin, hammy English vocals might be the only deterrent, but get past that, and you've a quartet of desert island discs. Quality, quality effort.
