By Dr. Delvis Memphistopheles TOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 31 Mar. 2013
Format: Audio CD
Whilst the singer skittles across the religions; Buddhism, paganism and ahem Roman Catholicism to inject some meaning into his life the musical journey has also been a cacophony of styles. Moving away from industrial loops this sees him ducking into the stool of the dark folk genre.

Whilst tales of wood sings of gay singing maidens wrapping themselves around the pole, these tales are introspections upon death undertaken primarily to bring out a hidden timbre.

Personally, the hysterical works of David are a required palette and where this excels are when fellow travelers are introduced to add a richness to the vocals. Then the flows and whirls of sadness flow through the gutters of the compositions. For these are the tales of sadness.

HASH(0x98053018) out of 5 stars Current 93 In Transition Great for all fans 4 Feb. 2005
By Robert E. Murena Jr. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Earth Covers Earth is a great work of David Bunting and a very large C93 grouping. This album showcases many styles of Current 93 including experimental noisescapes apocalyptic folk and the more orchestrated and poetic works like "Thunder Perfect Mind". This album is very influenced by Byron When Rome Falls, Falls the World and the title track. There is also an "eastern" and a traditional European folk influence here making for an interesting mix. The album is very easy to listen to and yet is immensely full of energy. This album is one of the most artistic works I have ever heard and is a great album for Current 93 fans as well as anyone who is seeking to expand their musical horizons.

The tracks on this album that are probably best are "Rome for Douglas P." (obviously this is Douglas Pierce of Death in June Fame), Hourglass For Rosy Abelisk and Hourglass For Diana. This last one is my favorite. The song is one big crescendo starting with a driving guitar and building to include flutes violins etch ultimately building to a massive wall of music and crashing to a stop. Beyond the very interesting instrumentation this track showcases Tibet's poetry and performance ability. The rest of the album is pretty interesting too and it is very well ordered ending with a noise epic track that fits and certainly is not filler. The only negative to this album is that its recording could have been a bit cleaner.

So why only four stars? Well this album is truly a magnificent find to the c93 fan as well as fans of the experimental/avant garde/art genres. It is still a great album for others but I think if I were to introduce C93 I would use other material. Some of there stuff is so good that this cant compare at the five star level. It is great music and I do suggest that you get a copy of this album it is very interesting and I haven't heard an album lately that even come close to the artiness that this work presents.

HASH(0x98073fb4) out of 5 stars Excellent, needed! 18 July 2010
By alec - Published on Amazon.com

The spirit of pagan Britain, like pagan everywhere else, is covered in fog, sometimes even a misguided "pagan" fog. For example, do neo pagans with all sorts of "Celtic" tattoos even realize that the much-celebrated Celtic Knot is actually an Anglo-Saxon Knot? Fog, fog, fog. Fog from everywhere covering us. Some people -- like Current 93 with "Earth Covers Earth" -- move the fog away if only for a few seconds, here and there, and help us see who we were (and still are). Unavailable except as download these days. Much praise on the seller for delivering this quick and pretty darn good condition. Pretty darn good condition, indeed!
