Sylvians songwriterly and hangover album,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Secrets Of The Beehive (Digipak) (Audio CD)
Secrets of the beehive is David Sylvians most songwriterly album, written mainly on piano and guitar with his good friend and musical polymath Ryuichi Sakamoto. It is also the perfect album for those long mornings with a hangover while waiting for that alka-seltzer to kick in.
Sylvians gentle strings, acoustic guitar and light piano tinkling all coupled with his tired sounding croon are perfect to sit back and wallow in, probably making this his most instantly accessable albums.
This not being a mainstream artist may not be everyones cup of tea, but it is both an outstanding collection of songs and a good album to just hit 'Play' and lie down to listen to. A perfect introduction to a perfect singer.
