Back on form and better than ever.,
This review is from: Snow Borne Sorrow (Audio CD)
Having been disappointed by the Good Son remix album and I was worried that this might also be a case of a lot of less talented people trampling over David's talent, I guess I shouldn't have really worried though as he has always been brilliant at picking collaborators in the past like Jon Hassell, Robert Fripp and Holger Czukay and here he does it again. This music is beatiful and deep, there are no stand out songs because they're all classics. I was a bit unsure about the idea of him working with electonica artist at first but the sound perfectly compliments his voice which is on top form and now I am a total convert, in fact I've even started exploring electronica as a result and bought albums by Boards of Canada and Marconi Union among others! Apparently this is intended to be a one-off record which is a terrible shame as it would be great to hear how Nine Horses would develop and unlike the Good Son shows how working with the right collaborators really adds a lot to his music. Snow Borne Sorrow is definitely David's best album since Secrets of the Beehive.
