4.0 out of 5 stars Classy and pleasant, 5 Sep 2013
This review is from: IV (Audio CD)
Blackfield albums contain one common denominator, accessibility. A jaunt through each album is rewarded with catchy melodies delivered with the precision expected from the collaborative talents of Aviv Geffen and Steven Wilson. Play each album on a random facility on your chosen audio and everything makes sense. It's not prog as I understand it, but adds that sophistication that brings simple melodies into another dimension, fusing orchestration and subtle time changes often beyond the reach of those who aspire to achieve it. Lyrically, Geffen throws the gauntlet down by challenging the listener to interpret exactly what he is getting at; I'm still not sure but you can always draw your own conclusions! Apparently, Steven Wilson stepped aside from full participation in the album but the track Jupiter deserves some commercial airplay and could easily sit with the impression that it was composed by Wilson himself. My only gripe is the shortness of the album but I'll comfort myself in the knowledge that Blackfield don't do long, hence no fillers or egos, just class.
