Reviews

How do you pin down enigma like Brian Eno? Music journalist David Sheppard makes a valiant stab at it in this lively biography * YORKSHIRE EVENING POST * A vivid, well-observed and absorbing biography replete with relevant context and cultural references * THE BEAT * Sheppard has corralled the many strands of Eno's hectic creative life into a coherent and highly readable account. On Some Faraway Beach will take some beating as a chronicle of one of popular music's few truly original practitioners. * TOTAL MUSIC MAGAZINE * On Some Faraway Beach provides an extensive introduction to a lifetime of constructive, and very English, pottering. * SUNDAY TELEGRAPH * David Sheppard's meticulously researched biography...[with] the kind of footnote that make this doorstopper such an engaging read * INDEPENDENT * Music Book of the Fortnight 'Few enigmas are as hard to unravel as Brian Peter George St John le Baptiste de la Salle Eno, but the Q contributor has done a bang-up job with this 450-page tome' * HOT PRESS (Ireland) * An accomplished and sprawling biography reflects Eno's scattershot approach to life - all over the place but fascinating just the same. * BIG ISSUE (Scotland) * David Sheppard's authorised biography dispels some of the myths surrounding Brian Eno and provides a compelling case for his importance as artist and thinker. * WATERSTONES BOOKS QUARTERLY * [An] honourable, authorised attempt to do justice to a mind-bogglingly restless and prolific subject. * SUNDAY TIMES * This exeptionally well-written biography duly celebrated [Eno's] great achievements with Roxy, Bowie, Talking Heads and his own solo work in compelling detail. * UNCUT * The 450-page biography (written with the help of the famous piss-taster himself) fairly zips along * OBSERVER MUSIC MONTHLY *
