The songs themselves are deeply personal, chronicling Tibet's life and loves and hates, most notably in the venomous "Gothic Love Song", which carries a faint hint of an orchestra beneath it, hinting at the over-the-top "manifest decadence" of the lyrics' antagonist.
A lot of people say that this is not an easy album, but personally I found it the most accessible and consistent of all C93's work. But it does have its unsettling moments, such as the final track's one and only line "The car sweeps by with a murdered child, the car sweeps by with a violated girl..."
It is also worth buying Antony and the Johnsons' "I Fell in Love with a Dead Boy" single for their moving rendition of "Soft Black Stars".
This is not an easy album to enjoy. But it is a compelling, emotive journey through loss, grief and personal darkness which repays every listen. Highest recommendation possible.

This is a great introspective album. You have to be in a certain mood to listen, but when you get that mood, it sounds simply perfect. Read morePublished on 3 April 2013 by nuno freixo
