Stunning as ever !!,
This review is from: High [Digipak] (Audio CD)
The waiting time gets longer (10 years until the next ?), but the Blue Nile improves with the years. It is a serious error of judgement to think that more from the Blue Nile would be better; each successive album displays a depth of honesty and personal growth that only comes from long days of meditation and heart-searching. It can't be rushed. That unmistakeable haunting sound from the first bar, the melancholy underpinnings, and the sparse but finely considered lyrics are all there. Blue Nile have again created highly emotive images from simple language and beautiful melodies; the lyrics are instantly accessible, but over time they generate different layers of appreciation and understanding. Long may Blue Nile continue to create unique '3am on a damp Glasgow morning' albums like this.
