This review is from: Love And Endings (Bonus one DVD) (Audio CD)
I came to this album having heard the masterful No-Man albums "Together we're stranger" and "Schoolyard Ghosts" and I was expecting for more of the same although I wasn't sure quite how such ethereally beautiful music could be done live. Well the answer is, they haven't attempted to reproduce these albums instead they've backed the angst ridden vocals of Tim Bowness with a very different sound. And it works. Oh how it works. It's actually resulted in an album which is in many ways easier to listen to than the above which are albums that demand to be listened to intently in order to fully appreciate just how very good they are, while this is something that is more accessible.
As a bonus the DVD of the concert is an masterclass lesson in how less is more. No fancy camera angles, just for the most part filmed very simply and directly giving the very real feel of being there. Add to this the excellent sound quality and you've got a in concert DVD which is up there with the very best.
