Biography

Since its formation in 1987, over the course of six massively varied studio albums and several compilations, No-Man has produced a unique body of work that has developed from the band's proto Trip-Hop/Ambient origins into something beyond easy categorisation.

After receiving ecstatic press reviews, indie top 20 hits and high profile contracts in the early 1990s (with One Little ... Read more in Amazon's No Man Store

Product Description

Originally recorded in the late eighties when, as Steven Wilson points out, they had no ‘record deal, audience or idea where we were going’ Speak was originally put out by Wilson and Bowness themselves as a cassette-only release. They returned to the album in the late 90s, at which point they re-recorded some of the parts of the album, replacing those recorded on the most primitive of equipment, without losing the spirit or beauty of the original recordings. Mixtaped, a new 2 disc DVD, is released on Kscope on September 14th. Tracks: Speak / Pink Moon / Iris Murdoch Cut Me Down / Curtain Dream / Heaven's Break / French Tree Terror Suspect / River Song / Riverrun / The Ballet Beast / Night Sky Sweet Earth / Life With Picasso / Death And Dodgson's Dreamchild / The Hidden Art Of Man Ray --This text refers to an alternate Audio CD edition.

Format: Audio CD
Fruit from the forest of dreams. The long-hidden tapes of early No-Man studio sessions finally get a full CD release, and reveal themselves as bewitchingly atmospheric: fragments of stories, brittle log-drum percussion, haunting slow-arching melodies, organic instrumentation blending seamlessly with gauzy electronic soundscapes, yearning tone-poems, and the hair rising blissfully on the back of your neck. Covers of Nick Drake ("Pink Moon") and Donovan ("River Song") anchor one side of "Speak" to visionary English folk, and you could use "Gone To Earth", "In A Silent Way" or "Spirit Of Eden" as landmarks, but this is off on its own. One of the most beautiful records ever released. In any genre.

I approached this album with some trepidation, I mean I love the later No-Man work, Schoolyard Ghosts being my particular favorite and how could this, some of their earliest work possibly match that. But it stands up incredibly well, if you like the sound of No-Man and you haven't already got this then get it, you won't be disappointed. This is surely one of the defining No-Man albums, on listening to it you can get glimpses of what was to come.
