Arriving 11 years and seven albums (only two of which containing new material) later, Bloodflowers is a worthy sequel to Disintegration. Clocking in at almost an hour, with only nine tracks, there's little room here for throwaway pop. Every song has been carefully thought out and exceptionally rendered. That unmistakable yearning quality has returned to singer Robert Smith's voice as the music sweeps the listener along in endless innocence. Indeed the whole album feels like a luscious manifestation of childhood dreams and secrets.
Opening track Out of this World is simple yet effective. It builds on a gentle acoustic guitar, reminiscent of Disintegration's Untitled, as Smith wistfully reminisces "when we look back at it all as I know we will, you and me wide eyed. I wonder will we really remember how it feels to be this alive". Better still is The Last Day of Summer, where melodies fall from the sky as Smith laments the changes life forces upon you as you grow older in the most beautifully naïve way: "Nothing I am, nothing I dream, nothing is new, nothing I think or believe in or say, nothing is true. It used to be so easy, I never even tried".
Elsewhere 39 and, particularly, Watching Me Fall evoke memories of Disintegration's glorious title track.Read more ›
