this is pretty much what you would expect from two masters of the ambient and ethereal. Budd's distinctive and minimalist melodic piano resonates through layers of synths and treated guitars. It's very well executed and sounds better with each listening. Hard to fault really.

I,m into Eno in a Big way, this led me onto Harold Budd (cracking stuff) and now onto Robin Guthrie.
The Album "after the night falls" is Wonderful.
Haunting, peaceful and interesting,
You shouldn't be disappointed if you buy "After the night falls"
I'm going to buy "Bordeaux" after hearing this Album.

Robin and Harlod are a perfect combination for a music. (something like Fripp and Sylvian). After a splendid Mysterious Skin, now they present a 2 albums with splendid 18 tracks with beautiful poetry for your soul. If you like Mysterious Skin and The Moon and the Melodies then this is a realy fantastic gift for their fans.

Blissful

Cocteau Twins minus Liz Fraser - hence only 4 stars.

If you like ambience, you'll love this.

bliss 24 Jun. 2007
By Brian M. Harris - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I have been a long time fan of the cocteau twins for quite some time. I was also introduced to harold budd when the twins collaberated with him on The moon and the melodies. As far as iam concerned, robin and harold are the perfect duo. Their music weaves together like beautiful tapestry. This is ambient music at its best. After the night falls is the best out of the two disc, but both of them are a must for any fan of both the artist.

Another great album from Guthrie and Budd 14 July 2007
By Sayaka Takasawa - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This album doesn't seem to cover any new territory that the two haven't done before either together or solo. It's a good listen however. Some of the guitar bits bring back fond memories of Guthrie's work 10 years ago. Overall it's a good addition to your collection. If you're a newbie to the pair, it's an excelent introduction.

West of Sundown by Budd & Guthrie 20 Jan. 2008
By Winslow Bunny - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Harold Budd & Robin Guthrie, a pair of legendary names in the ambient music world, created a two-album theme of music and emotions with Before The Day Breaks and After The Night Falls. Creating a kind of minimalist sound with these albums, the pair have created relaxing ambient music demonstrating that sometimes less is more, and better. Both are excellent for unwinding after work, for quiet times and perhaps even catching your breath at work. This is a definite recommendation for those who want their music a little calmer & quieter.

Like a cross between Budd's work with Eno and Frippertronics 12 April 2010
By Mike - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
John Diliberto (in Amazon's review) is right...this could have, and probably should have, been a single CD in combination with Before The Day Breaks. Aside from that one minor complaint, the two CDs form a musical tapestry that is reminiscent of Budd's two Eno collaborations, Ambient 2: The Plateaux of Mirror and The Pearl, with Guthrie's guitar expanding the sound into the realm of Eno's collaborations with Robert Fripp, (No Pussyfooting) and Evening Star...with the big exception being that Guthrie eschews Fripp's reliance on loops and drones in favor of more traditional playing. If you're a fan of the four CDs I just named, you will love both of these...it's that simple. At times, a compelling melody will break free of the ambient spiral and pull you in, but for the most part, it's not music for "active listening" or driving around on a hot summer day with the top down on your convertible. It's ambient music, and it's among the best that's out there.
