Format: Audio CD
Strange how some albums simply seem to slip through the net, especially when they have as much to offer as this under-stated offering by Danish act Our Broken Garden.
Signed to Bella Union (the acclaimed label of an ex-Cocteau Twin), this bleakly soulful collection of songs really grows with repeated listens.
Built around a mournful female voice, the bedrock of the band's sound is Talk-Talk-esque pattering drums and swelling hammond organ.
Yes, the album could do with a few pace changes, getting stuck a little too often in second gear, but there are enough quirks and chilly atmospherics to make this a genuinely beguiling experience.

NOTE 4/3/13: I don't necessarily still stand by the opinions below. I would say nowadays that the songs sound great and atmospheric on shuffle among other music, but as an actual ALBUM it's not so enjoyable. I've not deleted the review on the off chance you might still find some useful information in it. I've upped the original two star overall score to four.

---------------------

Taste and restraint are the watch words. Some might say bland. It's all very pretty, but it's not super beautiful or substantial. Nor is it particularly entertaining. I don't regret buying it but it's not one of the best purchases I've ever made.

The song they most sound like is the slow, sleepy, subdued "Sail To The Moon" by Radiohead from Hail To the Thief.

Does the idea of 38 minutes of stately, subdued, meandering gothic soundscapes with ethereal female vocals appeal to you?

Yes - You'll really like this. 4 stars.
Perhaps - You'll like a few tracks but the whole thing in one sitting isn't much fun. 2 stars.
No - You'll be bored out your mind. 1 star.

Personally I fall into the perhaps category. I like proper songwriting so I knew I was going to struggle with it. I think it's much better than it could have been, although it could have been a bit more varied.

1. Watermark 6:08 (4 out of 5 stars)
Stately mid-tempo music. Has slide guitar all over it (similar to the slide guitar on the opening of Pink Floyd's "Great Gig In The Sky"). Vocals remind me of Thom Yorke at his most haunted. Very lush Pink Floyd meets Radiohead sound with Michael Nyman's orchestra sawing away in the background.

2. The Blinding 3:24 (3 stars)
A bit fuller, more rockier, less ethereal track.
