5.0 out of 5 stars Together They Are Better, 14 April 2003
This review is from: No-Man Together We're Stranger (Audio CD)
The latest album from one of the most under-rated and over-looked bands of the past 15 years. If you are looking for an instant fix of frothy pop, don't come here. But if you want music that hits you in your heart as well as your head, you must buy this album. Almost devoid of percussion, built on layers of sharp acoustic guitars, snatches of organ and washes of strings - topped by Tim Bowness' heart-felt but restrained vocals, "Together We're Stranger" is a work of great beauty.
Unlike no-man's earlier albums, "Together We're Stranger" has a real timeless feel and contains one of their finest songs in the 10 minutes plus "Photographs In Black & White".
Fans of Steven Wilsons other outfit, Porcupine Tree, will also appreciate this album, but don't expect it to sound anything like "In Absentia". This is a rock free zone. Anyone moved by latter period Talk Talk, early Sylvian, Kate Bush or Nick Drake will find sustenance in this album. As will anyone who's had their heart broken, looked in the mirror and seen what the ravages of time can do, or woken up alone and lonely.
