Challenging and ultimately brilliant....but don't start here
on 17 December 2013
If you liked Japan and David Sylvian's first album (Brilliant Trees, with hits like "Ink and the Well") then this might be the album for you, but not just yet.
The voice is the same (mellifluous baritone), indeed better, but the sparse, avant garde accompaniment might be a shock. Better to take his career in chronological order. If you make it as far as Manafon you are in for a rare treat, but it's just possible that you and Mr Sylvian will cite artistic differences and part company before you get here.
