This is a troubled album indeed. David Tibet has been transforming Current 93 into an intensely personal project for some time, but this record is his most distressing to date. And probably the finest he's put the Current 93 name to.
A tribute to his late father, "Sleep Has His House" was allegedly completed quickly and stands as a raw outpouring of deep grief. Sonically, the record is warm and soothing, with fuzzy harmonium being the predominant instrument. Yet this inviting sound is the bedrock for lyrics of tremendous weight and poetic dexterity, as Tibet covers his feelings on his father's passing unflinchingly. The album never feels uncomfortable, despite the obvious intrusion into such private feelings, rather it stands as an unpolished tribute of magnificent eloquence, the soul-crushing emotion all but tangible.
An extraordinary record from an extraordinary group.

Further proof that current 93 are one of the most challenging and interesting bands around. When David Tibet can produce such beautiful art as sleep, soft black stars, faust, who is the sufferer?, all within the space of two years, and all very different but beautiful in their own and very different ways, you know there must be something special. If sleep and Soft black stars are indicative of the future direction and quality of current 93 (the other projects mentioned above are quite obviously tangents) we should be in for such awe inspiring music in the years to come. Don't miss them live if you have the opportunity to see them!
