5.0 out of 5 stars Strange Adventures, 80's Style, 18 Nov. 2005
This review is from: The Dreaming (Audio CD)
For me, 'The Dreaming' is undoubtedly the strangest and most adventurous album of KB's illustrious career.
Uniquely adapting ethnic rhythms (strong Celtic and Australian Aborigine influences pervade) and, then, cutting-edge Fairlight technology, in some ways the album is a more extreme and emotionally edgy companion to Gabriel's contemporaneous classics '3' and '4'.
'All The Love' and 'Houdini' are unnervingly beautiful highlights, while 'Get Out Of My House' (featuring a great Fripp-inspired guitar line) sounds as possessed as the demonic subject matter it deals with.
In conclusion, 'The Dreaming' is an astonishingly fresh and genuinely brave statement from 1982 that still sounds vital and surprising today. Taken alongside the likes of Gabriel, Sylvian, Eno, Talking Heads, Talk Talk and The Blue Nile, this is an album that suggests that the 'decade of evil' was just as creative in its own way as the more celebrated 1960s and 1970s.
