On Some Faraway Beach The Life and Times of Brian Eno

The biography of Brian Eno by David Sheppard is best described as stream of consciousness.  The text rambles and could have used some editing. It  seems to have been written for uncritical members of the Eno choir.

That said, he does do a good job of outlining Eno’s contributions to the music industry and frames process, experimentation, risk taking and frankly guts as useful skills and traits for creative entrepreneurs and artists.

BTW: My favorite U2 Album remains – Acthung Baby. My favorite ambient is Music for Airports- Bang on a Can.
