4.0 out of 5 stars A wasted opportunity, 15 Aug 2011

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: NINE HORSES / MONEY FOR ALL (Audio CD)
I really, really wanted to love this album, especially after 'Snow Borne Sorrow' which I think is one of the best albums of the last 30 years. But this contains little of the originality or uniqueness that made SBS take your breath away. Of the very few new tracks on here, 'Get The Hell Out' is disappointing and sounds like it was left over from the SBS sessions, discarded from that album. The only stand-out track is the haunting 'Birds Sing For Their Lives' which is, quite frankly, brilliant. The sad thing is that I'm saying that about the one track on the album on which David Sylvian doesn't sing!

His voice, on the other tracks, is as rich as always, but the songs themselves are not up to the SBS standard. Half the album is Burnt Friedman's remixes of SBS tracks - why???? Why not give us an entirely new album? The remixes sound like he simply put the same, rather bland backing track to each song - they don't sound new or exciting. When you get to the end and find a Friedman remix of one of the NEW tracks, you being to wonder if everyone's heart was only half in this album ....
