Ok, so a bit of a pedantic review title - but this, the second of Sylvian's collaborations with ex-Can linch-pin Holger Czukay is arguably one of the most beautiful ambient recordings ever made.

Whereas 1988's 'Plight and Premonition' was often stark, and perhaps cold, 'Flux and Mutability' is warm, gentle and balming. The first track 'A big, bright, colourful world' begins with an electronic pulse quickly followed by light but fast percussion which sets you up for the pace of the piece for the next 17 minutes. Even so, we are hardly talking lightning speed, this is relaxing 'mood' music at its best. Radio fluctuations are prevalent here as they were on the last offering, providing some mysterious backdrops to this enigmatic shimmering composition.

The second half, 'A new beginning is in the offing', is 21 minutes of the most beautiful ambiance I have ever heard. Only Eno could be compared to Sylvian here for the ability to infuse such emotion through electronic music, and for me Sylvian has the upper-hand even compared to the masterpiece that is 'Music for Airports'. The first four notes on this piece stop me dead in my tracks every time I hear them, literally forcing me to become totally relaxed, recumbent and silent and start the track from the beginning again. There is no percussion here, just a swirling mass of musical sound that for all of its electronic components, transports you to a very organic pastoral landscape, perhaps helped by the cover image of a farmer herding his flock down a country lane. It does not have an end, but rather the silence you are left in is merely a continuation of the space you find yourself occupying.

David Sylvian and Holger Czukay's 'Flux And Mutability' belongs to ex-Japan musician's best works. Consisting of two tracks, it's abstract in a way that's similar to Shostakovich's string quartets. However, at the same time it is accessible like Brian Eno's 'Music For Airports' or Gavin Bryars's 'The Sinking Of The Titanic'. Think Andrei Tarkovski's 'Stalker', rain on a sun-lit patio, memories of things that never happened . . . Just don't think Art Of Noise! 'Flux' is gorgeously ethereal. Mesmerising.

This, the second album that resulted from the combined creative skills of David Sylvian and Holger Czukay, is not as good as the first, despite having a similar feel.
There is also a similar structure in that the disc has only two tracks, the seventeen-minute `Flux (A Big, Bright, Beautiful World)' and the twenty-one-minute `Mutability (A New Beginning Is in the Offing)'.

The first is the better track. Some percussion gives a sense of movement through a landscape of heat and haze, constructed from innumerable layers of sound. Its `coup de maitre' is a five-note rising figure played in what might be the highest register of an electric guitar.

Whilst the second track is beautifully contemplative, it is ephemeral: its repeated riffs of wavy high slow guitar glissandos supported by sustained chords venture nowhere. Interestingly, if you follow the end of the second piece immediately with the beginning of the first, like an extended loop, you will notice many links between the two. Was this designed by the artists, or is it a happy co-incidence?

Whilst `Plight & Premonition' earned five stars, I give `Flux & Mutability' only three.
