If there are any bits of pop's sound and style that Roxy Music haven't influenced, their former keyboard player tidies up the rest. Although he's best known for his pioneering work in ambient music, Brian Eno's 13th solo album at last returns to the largely song-based electronic pop he created with 1970s albums such as Another Green World. The joy of hearing Eno's hushed, statesmanlike singing voice again is one thing, but the hymnal This and funky Under match anything in his canon.

Finally bored with ambient music, a genre he pioneered in the 1970s, pop polymath Brian Eno emerged with Another Day on Earth, his first solo recording of "conventional" songs since Another Green World. From the rhythm track of opening song "This," the sound is unmistakable. A quirky hook covered in layers of atmosphere and a bouncy loop, it's a smart little tune with additional guitars by Leo Abrahams.

Dusted Magazine
Their review was only somewhat favourable

It’s been a long time since Brian Eno made a song-based album: 13 years if you consider the subliminal chants and scraps of dialogue buried in Nerve Net’s grooves to be songs, or 15 if you go back to Wrong Way Up, his collaboration with John Cale. It’d be foolish to expect an artist as restless as Eno to simply cough up another “Baby’s On Fire” or “St. Elmo’s Fire” or “The River,” but not unfair to expect him to match their quality, and on that score this record is a disappointment.
