Biography

'The Tower of Silence' - the follow-up to 2006's critically acclaimed 'All Things Real' (The Sunday Times - Album of the Week) finds Steve Adey doing what he does best - creating emotionally charged songs and moulding a soundtrack which is unlike any other record you will hear this year. The album encompasses a myriad emotions as Adey carves out a filmic wall of sound, ... Read more in Amazon's Steve Adey Store

I bought this after reading some positive reviews and some plays on 6 music. Great listening, amazing voice. Great artwork, too. If you Talk Talk, Blue Nile...would highly recommend. 5 stars.

Darker and more orchestrated than All things real. Best listened to on headphones - loudly. If you can get through The Field without feeling some kind of ache, then you probably haven't lived yet.

Steve Adey has taken his time following up the brilliant All Things Real (2006), but the wait was worth it. From the opening A few Seconds' through to the epic Tomorrow, Adey has produced a classic album where every track is top draw. He is on a singular path and deserves wider attention. Get the vinyl, which betters the CD. I read an article in a hi-fi magazine about how the LP was transferred straight from the mix and not mastered or compressed. This is great music. Buy it now.

Format: Audio CD
There are moments in Steve Adey's new album 'The Tower Of Silence' when
time seems to stand still and the air thickens and wraps tightly around you.
Sometimes a warm blanket; sometimes a shroud. These ten compositions have
an intensity and economy which is both uncompromising and fiercely original.
Mr Adey's passionate dark brown voice inhabits this strangely unsettling
music like a ghost in search of breath and flesh and bone to fill the void.

That it is not the easiest listen should be no bar to discovery. With repeated
acquaintance the territory becomes negotiable and the form and shape of his
inventions gets a grip on your spirit and imagination and just won't let go.

Following a haunting introduction (the gently pulsing electronic instrumental
'A Few Seconds Have Passed') the deeply melancholic first song 'Laughing' unfolds
like a quasi-Elizabethan dirge; disturbing but profoundly beautiful in its own way.
No-less-so the stripped-down but perfectly structured 'Just Wait Till I Get You
Home' with its pastoral synth and vocal punctuation marks. A sublime confection.
The sparkling soundscape 'With Tongues' is a curious diversion featuring spare
percussion and Helena MacGlip's wordless angelic voice dipping in and out of focus.
The final track 'Tomorrow', however, is perhaps the project's true highlight.
A moving conclusion with something approaching hope and redemption at its heart.

Mr Adey is to be warmly congratulated for his singularly affecting vision.

Highly Recommended.

This is a record that connects with the listener right from the off. Yes, you may want to cry on hearing this, but you'll find it a beautiful experience! Go buy it.

The key to enjoying Steve Adey's 'Tower of Silence' is not to expect songs in the normal order of things bit to immerse oneself in soundscapes where the lyrics add an enigmatic dimension giving an impression rather than a clear explanation of any particular scenario. It grows on one like fungus and soon imbed in the subconscious.one of the albums of 2012.
