5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect, 2 Aug. 2008
This review is from: Late Night Tales (Audio CD)
I was lucky enough to discover this album as part of the in-flight entertainment on a night flight from New York to London. I can't sleep on flights at the best of times, so this was a gift from God that night. While slowly drifting in and out of a half slumber I discovered Jeff Alexander's "Come Wander With Me" an otherworldly and beautiful piece of music from an old Twilight Zone I later discovered, unbelievable. I was re-introduced to "Ghosts" by Japan, which I've always loved, but this was the perfect setting for David Sylvian's ether like vocals. There is never a wrong time to hear Minnie Ripperton's "Loving You", always tragic and eternally moving. Other highlights include The Cure, Nino Rota and Lee Hazlewood, all wonderful selections, but special mention has to go to the inclusion of "The Old Man's Back Again" by Scott Walker which blew me away and I must have listened to this at least six times over. I have since bought Air - Late Night Tales (and Scott 4 - genius). I can't recommend this enough, without doubt the finest chill-out album I have heard, and a great introduction to some fabulous artists too. Air obviously have an ear for atmospheric and wonderful music and here is the proof.
I can't believe the ridiculous criticisms here of this album, madness.
