Biography

The David Sylvian that fronted new wave pop band Japan wore luminescent hair and glam make-up; on the cover of his solo debut, 1984's Brilliant Trees, he was stylish and refined, a gentleman popster. But the illustration that introduces 2003's Blemish sends a different message: he's bedraggled and unshaven, his far-off expression turned haunted. The new millennium has seen a more ...

As many listeners to Blemish have found, the original had an extremely personal and apparantly unhappy foundation.
Its production meant decent tunes lost out to keeping faithful to raw emotion.
Never one to publish what is expected, David Sylvian gave us a sparse and challenging record; Here those songs have been reworked to mostly postive results, giving back more traditional tunes to accompany his distinctive voice.
Standout track for me is `How little we need`, which with the new arrangement really emphasises how weary his voice sounds.
Hopefully, Blemish proved to be cathartic and he can move on to an equally energised ,but more positive, future output.

Sylvian has personally commisioned 9 remixes from stars in IDM and electronica, to create one of the most staggering remix albums I've heard for a long while (I usually don't deliver such hyperbole, but in this instance I have to).
Where Bjork's
" Telegram " failed, here sylvian's conception and openness to electronica has been right on the money for the spare electronic narratives to be recontextulised in completely different ways. Sylvian's "Blemish" was released two years to universal critical acclaim, but here, the songs are completely remoulded, as if each piece operates on new melodic rules. Tatsuhiko Asano's remix of " How little we need to be Happy, is in particular mind-blowing, taking in jazzy electronic twists and turns of the voice, while Burnt Friedman scores well with his take on Blemish. Just buy it and view it as an equal companion piece to Sylvian's masterpiece.

There were some Sylvian fans who though that "Blemish" was self-indulgent and unlistenable. I disagree strongly with that sentiment, but can understand it. This album of remixes is much easier to listen to, while keeping in the spirit of the original. It's wonderful stuff, an ideal companion to "Blemish". Buy it, and buy it now.
