2.0 out of 5 stars Time to call it Geffen and friends 17 Sep 2013
By Killer
Format:Audio CD
Blackfield have made some great albums, with terrific melodies, unfortunately this isn't one of them. Just over 30 minutes its a bit of a rip off, but the song quality is also poor. I think a few songs might grow on me, but I won't be buying Blackfield V without a really long hard listen.

2.0 out of 5 stars The last Stand 8 Sep 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Well here it is, the last stand for a band I once thought I would buy anything they produced without having to first hear the album, Steven Wilson is that good, but alas, this is not a Steven Wilson album, infact his imput is pretty minimal, and it shows. This is an Aviv Geffen album disguised as a Blackfield album, and perhaps the last I will ever purchace. On `The Raven that Refused to Sing` Steven Wilson solo album there is a track which sounds like the old Blackfield, so I guess thats were all the talent headed and so will I. Goodbye Blackfield, was fun, but......

2.0 out of 5 stars Mutton dressed as lamb! 8 Sep 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This unfortunately is another fall in quality under the once great Blackfield moniker. Aviv Geffen should be big enough to put this out under his own name and not pretend its something else by exploiting the fan base created by Steven Wilson. Clearly SW stepping away meant he had to seek a further fans from Suede, Anathema and Mercury Rev. I did get Aviv's solo album and its actually better than this pile of half developed songs that runs to just over 31 mins! - charged at full price may I add. For Blackfield 4 read Blackfield Final as far as I am concerned.

3.0 out of 5 stars Uninspiring 3 Sep 2013
By Graeme
Format:Audio CD
Blackfield IV is a very skimpy 31 minutes or so of niceness - nothing particularly offensive, but certainly nothing to get at all worked up about. Blackfield appear to have settled for a forumla they're happy with - very short melodic pop that you can have on in the background while doing something else. The inclusion of Messrs Cavanagh, Anderson and Donahue at least offers a change in vocal sound, if nothing else.

There isn't a bad song on IV; thing is, there's not a really good one, either. It's just nice. Hence my three stars - it's okay. Welcome to My DNA is better, and Blackfield I and II are streets ahead. If you're new to the band and want to check them out, do yourself a favour and check the earlier stuff, first.

3.0 out of 5 stars Light weight predictability. 27 Aug 2013
Format:Audio CD
Blackfield is something of a side project for Porcupine Tree main-man Steven Wilson. Blackfield, the band (?) is a conglomeration of artists mostly headed by Aviv Geffen with assistance from the said Mr Wilson, so it would be wrong to expect a Porcupine Tree album. Indeed at just over 30 minutes its very short and one should not expect the sprawling progressive epics one might yearn for. In fact, the songs are simple, sometimes whimsical light-hearted affairs with little evidence Mr Wilson's typical input.
The album is very listenable but ultimately thats' its probable downfall. Its too lightweight. Too easy on the ear. Too simple. Too run of the mill. It has a light-weight predictability that offers little new or refreshing and for these reasons makes it my least favorite of their 4 studio and one live release.
Get Blackfield II if you're a newcomer to this band.

3.0 out of 5 stars Nice - but WAY too short! 4 Sep 2013
Format:Audio CD
Being a long time fan, I would never have thought to write anything less than at least a 4-star-rated review about Blackfield's new album. But here it is, with 3 stars only. Why?

Well, the music is just fine - but there's so little of it! If this would be sold as an EP prior to an upcoming album, it would be OK. But as it is, it seems to me that the lack of creativity to compose more material corresponds with Steven Wilson's reduced effort for Blackfield. Aviv Geffen's capabilities alone are just not enough to fill the void that SW's absence leaves in the songwriting department.

I hope it's too early to close the coffin over Blackfield, but another poor album like this one would dig a deep grave.

3.0 out of 5 stars Relatively weak 28 Aug 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I was looking forward to this after the excellent first three Blackfield albums but after a few listens to this now I have to say it is disappointing. It's pleasant, there are some nice melodies and arrangements, but very little spark. All the tracks are less than 4 minutes long and at times I just was left feeling that the songs could have been developed further - I'm not after epics but the 5-6 minute mark would have been good. If you have Aviv Geffen's English language album that will give you a pretty good idea of what you are getting. It's not rock in any way. I would describe it as melancholic pop. Better than that vast majority of dross that clogs up the charts these days but given the high standards that Blackfield set themselves, it's pretty lightweight and nowhere near the class of Steven Wilson's most recent solo album. Still - if you have the other Blackfield albums it's worth a go, if you haven't start with the earlier stuff!

3.0 out of 5 stars Weak 28 Aug 2013
By PNeruda
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
To me this the weakest Blackfield record. No new movements. No new ideas. At least it's the shorter of their records. I really think that the amazing Steven Wilson was no really compromise on this project. Mr. Geffen it's not enough to give a new turn of band.
Keep us with the two first records.
