Lush late night atmospheric songs,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: No-Man Together We're Stranger (Audio CD)
This album combines serene instrumentation with excellent vocals in a genuinely adult album of gently wrought songs. It is a mood album, possibly for drifting afternoons or late nights, a consistent feeling of soft expectation carries through. The instrumentation combines electronic soundwashes, distant rumbles and goregous melodies. There are elements of Brian Eno, Harold Budd, David Sylvian, Holgar Czukay and Robert Fripp here and the music will appeal to fans of those artists. The vocals are less mannered and pretentious than on earlier albums, having a more direct ability to communicate. This album is recommended for those times when you need a mood piece such as this. It won't appeal to many and is delightfully out of step with modern chart music, but that is sadly their loss not ours.
