5.0 out of 5 stars A darker fantasy. 2 Aug 2009
Format:Audio CD
The second album from This Mortal Coil takes a darker and colder turn than it's predecessor, "It'll End in Tears". It benefits from greater length and a more subtle flow of textures from one track to the next. All three albums are intended to be heard continuously, the varied covers more like arias than a collection of singles. On the first listen it's easy to see this as relentlessly downbeat navel-gazing. On the second the intricacy of the sonic tapestry and the variety of rich imagery stands out, from the ponderous forgotten-myth vibe of "The Jeweller" through the theatrical grandeur of "Strength of Strings" and the intimate tragedy of "Morning Glory" into more disturbing waters. This is an album both for mourning and celebrating life, the dream paradox that makes perfect sense whilst you are experiencing it: "I want to live/I want to die".

All three This Mortal Coil albums are must-owns. "It'll End in Tears" would make a better sampler for the uninitiated, but you'll quickly find that all three become indispensable.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best, for ever 27 Feb 2005
Format:Audio CD
It's just one of those records. I've had it for a few years and I never stopped listening to it. It's just good for you.
"This Mortal Coil" was a band made up of artists from other 4AD bands (Dead Can Dance, Wolfgang Press, Cocteau Twins, Colourbox, Breathless, Dif Juz), so it was like (well, not like, really) a dream band. When all the ingredients are great, the result is this.
