5.0 out of 5 stars Sublime, 8 Mar. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Uncommon Deities (Audio CD)
I've been a fan of David Sylvian since the 1980s and I've followed his work ever since. As his music has become more and more experimental and improvised his work has become more and more inaccessible, especially to those uninitiated with his work. I think that this is one of his most accessible works since Dead Bees. Uncommon Deities, to which Sylvian lends his voice is sublime. The imaginative poems by Paal-Helge Haugen and Nils Christian Moe-Repstad are recited with the chocolate tones I have loved since those 80s days of Nightporter, Ghosts and Forbidden Colours. Each poem, a journey into the minds and behaviors of Gods which we have not considered but are clearly aware of humans and the impact we have on them and their responsibilities.
I love this work. It's thought provoking, incredibly creative, relaxing and beautiful. The delivery, imagination, humour and diction make me smile.
