Evening! Voting over and thanks to the 12 brave souls who ventured out to do so, your sacrifice has brought three of you the following accolades..:-)

Our winner at a canter is Nightporter with 36 points nominated by tech sergeant (getting a bit regular this tech...well done!).
Also going great guns in second place we have Blackwater (our only entry from Rain Tree Crow - well under that name anyway) with a fine 25 points nominated by ''Sylvian sceptic'' Derek W! Good work sir!
Whilst just pipping two other titles for third place is the snappily titled When Poets Dreamed Of Angels with 18 points nominated by TheFoe. Podium place again (shall I bring the bronze medal with me on Thursday mate?).

Well done all three and to Liq for his nomination, seems this artist has been received quite well with most deputy, albeit with the odd caveat. Never really been a fan but have found a few more tracks to add to the mp3! Nice one.

Goodnight all and thanks again for your continued participation on this thread, I'm going to post the nomination page for the next artist (David E's nomination of Goldfrapp) tonight. It will close next Monday evening (when I get back from the UK) and voting will run until Thursday evening (when I fly off again to the UK for the 6 week sojourn). The first artist up after my return will easytiger's nomination of Ned's Atomic Dustbin.

Unless someone else wants to run it through the next few weeks after Goldfrapp of course. All the info is available on the 'who is your fave artist' pages. Mind you, best check with Phil Burrell that he can do the playlist!

I'm sorry to be so late replying Lenny. I'm afraid voting did end at 10.00 pm. You'll see from my post above that there's another artist next week and then a break for a while (unless someone else runs things for a little while). Would be good to see you if you can look us up again on here. ;-)

cheers, foe. it was 'nightporter' that inspired me to buy into japan, having no interest in their rock/glam beginnings. surprised that 'ghosts' didn't do better.

I loved Nightporter and bought a Japan album on the strength of it. Unfortunately I didn't like any other songs on it. Same with solo David Sylvian, I heard one or two semi-classical collaborations of his on 'Late Junction' but couldn't find anything I liked on the albums I tried. Still love his voice though. Perhaps I should try again.

Must admit I thought 'Ghosts' would have romped home tech. It's the inconsistencies in David Sylvians work that has left me with only one album, that being the excellent 'Secrets Of The Beehive'. I can do you a copy of that if you'd like Lez, and I'm sure Liquid will recommend any other gems.

I'll have a listen first Foe, then let you know. It was certainly the one that gave me most of my voting choices.

You could not pick a better Sylvian album to own a copy of in my view Foe. It remains my fave work of his, solo or otherwise although 1999's 'Dead Bees On A Cake' runs it a close second. Nine Horses' Snow Borne Sorrow is a highly accessible album which I thoroughly enjoyed and fair play to Al for affording it representation on our list of noms. Sylvian's 2009 album 'Manafon' is worth owning a copy of, not so much for the music as for Ruud Van Empel's fabulously engrossing artwork. Foe used the word inconsistency and I think it's an appropriate one but David has always been highly experimental with his work and such inconsistency is often an inevitable consequence of same.

Stephen Beresford's play 'The Last of the Haussmans' contains a scene in which Nick, a middle aged homosexual alcoholic, tells Daniel of how he and his sister Libby were huge David Sylvian fans in their younger days. Daniel, the youthful object of Nick's affections, actually has a secret crush on Libby and later in the piece presents her with a David Sylvian CD as a birthday gift in the hope of impressing her.
Just thought I would close with a bit of Sylvian trivia. You never know, one of you may come across a related quiz question one day and maybe you will remember old Liquidator :-)

That's good to know Liquid. With his songwriting capabilities and unique singing voice, I still think and hope that David Sylvian has the talent to produce at least one more mind blowing album. Interesting bit of trivia too. :-)
