Customer Review

on 25 July 2013
Frankly I'm amazed that there aren't a lot more rave reviews on here for this extraordinary release. As Pollo has pointed out above any fans still mourning the loss of Talk Talk and the ongoing silence from Mark Hollis should prepare to rejoice; Field of Reeds is a magnificently beguiling piece of work built on layers of complex acoustic instrumentation and possessed of great emotional depth and beauty. The arrangements are stunning - by turns melancholic, nostalgic and wistful they remind me in mood and complexity of Adrian Mcnally's formidable work with The Unthanks. I'll come clean here and say that despite being intrigued by the reviews of TNP's earlier releases and the band's obviously considered and intelligent approach I didn't really warm to their sound. This however is something else altogether, an abundance of harmonic riches which anyone with an appreciation for the elegant soundscapes of David Sylvian, minimalism or the aforementioned Talk Talk should be hastening to acquire. Easily one of the high-water marks of 2013 so far.
