Grab a glass (or bottle) of a nice red wine, turn off the lights, get the fire or some candles lit and sit back and absorb this album.Get yourself some personal thinking time.Listen to the words, the beauty of the voice, the sensitivity of the production...How this album did not take off is a mystery to me. Clearly a lot of late evening, night-time "DJs" have a lot to answer for.If you're devoted to The Blue Nile, David Sylvian, Crustation,the ballads of Jeff Buckley (R.I.P.)try this album out.

Why this album is available only on import baffles me beyond words. Blake's eponymous first album garnered praise from all quarters so the fact that 'still life' recieved no coverage at all on it's release makes no sense to me. Could sales have really been so poor that polydor ditched the artist after only one album despite the critical acclaim it recieved?
This album is really gorgeous and a lot more accessible than his first largely through his choice of eclectic musicians. The songs romantic , melancholic and thought provoking, deserve to be heard by as many discerning ears as possible.
If you have ever been moved by the music of Sylvian, Walker, Tindersticks etc then 'still life' is definately for you... you have little to lose but so much to gain!!

This is one of the best CD I have heard in a long time. If you liked his first album you are going to LOVE this one. Similar style, moody and atmospheric. A voice to die for, smooth as honey. Music to soothe the mind (and maybe the soul) after a long stressful day. Some might describe it as a bit tragic, but I think it is simply FANTASTIC. Forget David Sylvian, this is far more complex and multidimensional music. Somewhere between Portishead and David Bowie in his best years (the early 70s that is). I do not understand why the album was not marketed in the UK as it is simply unmissable. Glad I checked on Amazon to see if anything else by the artist had been published since his first album.

After having bought the first album by this much underrated artist, I pounced upon this, the second installment of truly breathtaking and emotional songs. I wasn't disappointed! It is true to say that it follows in the same vein as his first album, but in this case, that isn't a bad thing.His voice has the ability to transport you to your own emotional state, try 'This Time It's Goodbye' with it's haunting piano melody. Perry Blake continues to touch on familiar territory of lost love with songs like 'Still Lives'and 'Stop Breathing' but in such an intense and personal way.There are also lighter moments included such as 'War in France' with it's catchy tune.What more can I say but I love this album for it's simplicity. it's truthfulness and it's simple ability to 'hurt'! If ever there was a second album by an artist, worthy of praise, this is the one!

I only discovered this album recently. I cannot remember the last time I enjoyed something as much as Perry Blake's "Still Life". Each and every song is a small masterpiece. I am totally in love with it.

Not to be missed.
