5.0 out of 5 stars Haunting 19 Aug 2005
Format:Audio CD|Amazon Verified Purchase
This album is an extremely personal experiance. The instruments have changed slightly this time, the piano of "soft black stars" is replaced by acoustic guitar & harmonium, which really really works well. The listening experiance here seems to work on a whole other level than almsot anything I've heard.. the repetative beautiful sad melodies coupled with the esoteric lyrics enunciated by David Tibet in his half singing/half spoken voice - it really does transport you. Some of the lyrics here will haunt me a long time to come. Favourite song "good morning great molloch". One of this groups finest albums.

5.0 out of 5 stars "Have Pity For The Dead" 17 Sep 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This is a troubled album indeed. David Tibet has been transforming Current 93 into an intensely personal project for some time, but this record is his most distressing to date. And probably the finest he's put the Current 93 name to.
A tribute to his late father, "Sleep Has His House" was allegedly completed quickly and stands as a raw outpouring of deep grief. Sonically, the record is warm and soothing, with fuzzy harmonium being the predominant instrument. Yet this inviting sound is the bedrock for lyrics of tremendous weight and poetic dexterity, as Tibet covers his feelings on his father's passing unflinchingly. The album never feels uncomfortable, despite the obvious intrusion into such private feelings, rather it stands as an unpolished tribute of magnificent eloquence, the soul-crushing emotion all but tangible.
An extraordinary record from an extraordinary group.

5.0 out of 5 stars beautiful 16 Sep 2001
Format:Audio CD
Further proof that current 93 are one of the most challenging and interesting bands around. When David Tibet can produce such beautiful art as sleep, soft black stars, faust, who is the sufferer?, all within the space of two years, and all very different but beautiful in their own and very different ways, you know there must be something special. If sleep and Soft black stars are indicative of the future direction and quality of current 93 (the other projects mentioned above are quite obviously tangents) we should be in for such awe inspiring music in the years to come. Don't miss them live if you have the opportunity to see them!

5.0 out of 5 stars No Sleep Here 21 Jun 2000
By "onibubba" - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
The first full length studio release by Current 93 since 1998's Soft Black Stars does not disappoint. Like that album, this is a softer and dreamier issuance of the Current than the nightmarish soundscapes conjured up on the releases I Have a Special Plan for This World, or Dawn. I found it to be most similar to Island in overall feel, though like all later Current 93 releases, this one is in a world all its own.
In Brief, the simple, melodic instrumentation is gently played over Tibet's unique poetry and the dream inducing backwash of a harmonium. Standout tracks include Red Hawthorne Tree and Niemandswasser.
A simply beautiful recording from one of the most prolific and consistantly exciting musicians alive.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic 5 April 2004
By Noel Pratt - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Amazon Verified Purchase
Like part Nico (w/ her harmonium) and then the inimitable Tibet. And Cashmore's music here, whatever he's offering, is superb. It all comes off. So consistently lovely throughout, the droning and also the melodies when you need them. Real conviction, however gentle, in David' vocals, but moreso in the still quite poetic lyrics themselves. One of Current Ninety-Three's best. And to think I almost forwent buying it based on some reviews here.

3.0 out of 5 stars Calming guitar & synth but very repetitious 25 Oct 2000
By Travis M. Owens - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
While this cd is enjoyable, in fact it's very good but the music itself is very repetitious. In fact if you don't pay too much attention, you're going to think there are only 2 songs, and all the rest are remixes because C93 appears to use the same sample sets over and over. He uses the SAME EXACT guitar strum in every song, and I'm not exaggerating, as I'm listening to this album while I'm writing this review. Considering that C93 cds go for almost double the price of a normal Top40 cd, its hard to call this a good buy but a true C93 fan should check it out. I'm not tring to give this CD a bad review, I'm just being honest here. There are 9 songs, most of them in the 4:00min-6:30min area, and the main song "Sleep has his House" is 24mins. He sings in all of them softly, but its not the sadistic/demented poetry type of some of their other work. I think the songs are extremely well made, not a single track is a let down but this album really feels like one big 60min song than 9 seperate songs. This is the only reason why I give it 3 stars, as the music work itself is really like 4.5 star quality.
If you're looking for your first or second C93 to buy, I wouldn't start here, I think its something you should listen to at least once later on, but if you don't know C93 well, I suggest you purchase something like "Calling for Vanishing Faces" because you get more songs for the buck and a more diverse array of songs.

4.0 out of 5 stars File in the 'Adult Music' section 28 May 2001
By G. Wilson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
These are, in my opinion, some of Tibet's best lyrics. They are simpler than ever but very personal and profound. I especially like "The Magical Bird In The Magical Woods", which stands alone quite nicely as poetry. The album has a mature, adult feel-it's dedicated to his late father-not surprising now that Tibet is in his forties. I eagerly await his future work... I had to subtract a star for the title track-it drones on a bit too long for my taste...
