5.0 out of 5 stars Wind In The Wires - A Modern Masterpiece of Music, 9 July 2008
This review is from: Wind In The Wires (Audio CD)
I only discovered Patrick Wolf when his third album, The Magic Position was released. I instantly fell in love with his ability to mix amazing lyrics with beautiful and adventurous music. The Magic Position played constantly for a long time after that, and then i saw him live, again i fell in love all the more with the music.
It was only a few month ago that i realised he had more albums under his name, and so i ventured over to Amazon and bought pretty much his whole back catologue. Considering i survive on a student budget, it was rather an extravagant gesture, but i decided it would probably be worth it it the other music was anything near as great as the Magic Position. what i found was a whole lot more...
Although i really love The Magic Position, and although i am obsessed with Lycanthropy (the first album), Wind In The Wires is what i like to call a modern masterpiece of music, and i dont often describe anything like that.
So why this album? Well, the opening song, The Libertine is an amazing musical story that transports you into a new world both through the music and the storyteling lyrics. The majority of the rest of the songs are a little different though... amazingly atmospheric and multi-layed these songs are both beautiful and captivating. I have reserched into this album quite a lot, and it was written and recorded partly in a small cabin by the sea in Cornwall and partly in Patricks mothers attick, and t shines through. The whole album is organic sounding, and by this i mean it features instroments such as the ukelele, guitars, pianos and violins, as well as a whole lot more mixed in to make a breathtaking overall sound.
I apologise if i sound very exctied about this album, but i have to say it is amazing! If you've been seeking something a little different to the generic rubbish that fills the airwaves today, then all i can say is two words, Patrick Wolf. Buy the album, its fantastic... please!
Before purchasing Patrick Wolfs music, i was at a point where i had lost hope in modern music, and all it took was a 25 year old guy with a dress sense that would put David Bowie to shame and an imagination and talent thats out of this world to regain my faith in music.
An essential to anyones collection, Wind in the wires.
Love to you all, hope you enjoy it as much as i have and will for many a year to come...
