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.

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.
