Laughing Dave returns!,
By A Customer
This review is from: Everything & Nothing (Audio CD)
One of the elements one has to bring to David Sylvian's music, is time. His music takes time ot grow on you. On first listening to this two CD set, I was quite bewildered at, what seemed to me at the time, the bizarre sequencing of the tracks. Also, I was a little disapointed at the stanger inclusions, (the Dobros, Lost to Logic etc.) and obvious exclusions, (Forbidden Colours, (actually not included due to problems with rights), red guitar etc.). It's funny that now, those tracks I was imaprtial to, upon first listening, are now amongst my favourite recordings by Sylvian. This CD is an absolute must have for those who lost track of sylvian after the japan days. Though, I feel that some tracks are way out of context and best listened to as part of the album it came from, (especially the Rain Tree Crow material). Apparantly, Laughing Dave is planning a similar compilation of instrumental work, which should be interesting! Go out and buy this CD! It has a dog with painted eyebrows on the front. What more could you want?! S.H.
