This 2CD collection is simply a masterpiece documenting Current 93's "apocalyptic-folk" period. Sure, there's a lot to take in at once but there isn't a bad song on there.
There's sparse piano and vocal takes such as "A Gothic Lovesong" and "Larkspur and Lazarus",where David Tibet's beautiful lyrics shine through in melancholy glory. There are more folky songs like "They Return to their Earth", and brooding songs filled with harmonium drones ("Red Hawthorn Tree", Niemandswasser"). There are more experimental pieces here too."Where the Long Shadow Falls" centres round an operatic vocal/piano sample with spoken word over the top.
Anyway,chances are that if you're reading this you know what to expect. The music is just the vehicle for Tibet's poetical musings on life, love, death and religion. Some people may find it depressing but there is optimism and beauty in there too. Check it out-you won't regret it!
