5 of 6 people found the following review helpful By Fletch-a-sketch TOP 1000 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 2 Nov. 2009
Format: Audio CD
A new album from an old face, this is Aviv Geffen's first full solo album sung in English. A competent pop/rock album which contains all the hooks that previous albums with Porcupine tree front man Steve Wilson as Blackfield have, hell there is even a cover of a Blackfield song (Cloudy now) to ease people into familiar territory. For me the album for all its time in gestation is not as polished as either Blackfield album. There is a good musical sensibility, and fans of Blackfield will probably like this album. As a bonus this UK version of the album comes with two bonus tracks and some natty videos which our near continental friends don't get.
Good Pop rock album for those who want to explore outside of the charts.

Not too many people in this country will have heard of Aviv Geffen, but apparently he's a bit of a superstar in his native Israel. On the other hand, fans of Pocupine Tree probably will recognise the name, with Aviv being the other half of one of Steven Wilson's side projects 'Blackfield'. I read some where that the Blackfield project was all about quality songwriting and this solo album contiues this theme. Whilst not as immediately accessible as I had anticipated after a few spins this comes across as a quality album full of raw emotion (despite Aviv's very strong Israeli accent being very prevalent) and some lovely songs. It's not particularly heavy, the guitars are definitely quite jangly but if you are a fan of Blackfield, or definitely not a fan of X-Factor style manufactured pap, then you'll probably enjoy it. Highlights for me would bge the re-recording of 'It's Cloudy Now', the ballad 'Berlin' and 'The One.' Give it a go.

Sadly enough, Aviv Geffen is rather unknown outside Israel, though that changed a bit courtesy of the Blackfield albums.
For his first opus sung in English, Aviv has created nothing less than a masterpiece. Every song is memorable, profound and heart-wrenching, perfectly produced courtesy of luminaries like Trevor Horn, for one. But the true hero of the record is indeed Aviv himself, who wrote every word and music, and did the magnificient string arrangements, among others.

As far as I'm concerned, this is easily one of the very best pop album of the decade, and most UK acts could learn a thing or two from listening to this man and his perfect melodies. Let's really hope that this disc gets him out wide in the open, as he deserves to be!

Thank you Aviv, for such magnificient songs.

Aviv Geffen`s first English release 30 Aug. 2014
By Ivan Howe The Great - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
The self-titled album by Israeli pop/rock singer and songwriter Aviv Geffen is the first one released in English for the European audience, and resembles a lot of the stuff done with Blackfield, the side project shared with Porcupine Tree bandleader and songwriter Steven Wilson, since it is basically melodic, as evidenced on the opening track Black &White. Now, the second track It Was Meant To Be A Love Song is ironically an uptempo rock song, not a love ballad, as the title suggests. Berlin puts the album back to the downtempo mood, with Geffen delivering some beautiful lyrics and melodies. It`s Alright is another uptempo track that rivals with it was Meant to be A Love Song, accompanied with nice melodies; Heroes is a soft pop/rock song that talks about war heroes, not only in his country, Israel, but also around the world. Cloudy Now is a song that Geffen recorded with Steven Wilson on the first Blackfield album that talks to a generation of Israeli youngsters to stand up and fight for their nation. October follows up with some nice melodies, similar in vein to Cloudy Now and Berlin. Now or Never changes the album pace to mid-tempo pop/rock in great shape. The One and Forest In My Heart close the album in a great manner. In short, if you are a Blackfield fan, you will probably love this album.

5 stars for Geffen!! 24 Jan. 2013
By brunettebutterfly - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
The CD case was a little cracked, I assume from shipping but other than that I was very delighted with my purchase. Aviv Geffen is a beautiful artist.. His song Berlin is touching, dark, and a little eerie - my favorite. The rest of the album is diverse, some happy upbeat songs as well as emotional and thought provoking. I highly recommend this Geffen CD..
