5.0 out of 5 stars Melanic meets Melodic July 10, 2007
Format:Audio CD
Ridiculous. This album brought out the music freak in me; compelled me to buy an extra copy just to have on hand to give to whichever of my friends shows good enough taste to appreciate it. Something this good has to be shared.

As an avid music collector (and one who, I may add, searches mostly in vain for Prog Rock of this caliber) I discover new music exponentially more frequently than I did as a young man. (It's more available, easier to sample before you buy, etc.) But SO seldom does a new CD do to me what this one did. Like most of my all-time favorites, it took a few listenings to sink in; then on the next few it sank in deeper, until it gave me a feeling that comes too rarely to one who owns so many albums: I had the feeling, listening to Blackfield II, that it might be THE LAST CD I'D EVER HAVE TO BUY. Absurd? Yes. Did the feeling last? Of course not--it never does. If it did I wouldn't truly BE a music lover. But the feeling WAS unmistakable.

This is just one type of popular music; it's just one band of the spectrum even of Rock music--or even of Prog Rock. But if it's YOUR frequency, if this type of music hits you where you live, you'll hear what I heard: perfection.

This is Rock music with beauty as it's defining characteristic; sophisticated, wondrously arranged stuff that can be played softly or loudly to equally enjoyable effect. Songs that straddle the lands of "dark" and "catchy", two musical land masses which I previously thought didn't share a border. This is music which doesn't employ hooks but TENDRILS, the more deftly and permanently to attach itself to your brain. And once it's there you'll be glad of it, except for the itch you'll feel to turn everyone else on to the perfection YOU now hear.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nice! March 6, 2007
Format:Audio CD
Blackfield II absolutely rocks! My copy arrived in the mail last month from the Burningshed site. I never expected such brilliance. It's such a perfect album and makes me feel positive about this particular, hard-to-classify genre of music. I'm quite surprised by the distinct personality Blackfield II has, since the first album lacked a lot of upbeat songs, which to me, was a bit depressing. As a matter of fact, Blackfield II runs circles around the first album. I'm not saying the 1st album was bad, cos it wasn't. I loved it and still do. The 1st album was darker, moodier and much more melodramatic. Blackfield II is an upbeat breath of fresh air in our modern-day commercial music industry. BF II's songs are mostly ballads and, really pretty at times. Am not trying to sound corny, but the songs are excellent. All through the album are Steven Wilson's signature sliding guitar riffs, lofty keyboard arrangements, as well as that wonderful sound called "Mellotron". I love the Porcupine Tree/Pink Floyd influence, cos we all know that Steven Wilson has taken Porcupine Tree in a totally different direction with the last two PT albums. Blackfield defines "real" music all the way. Oh, one thing I should bring up before it slips my mind...Aviv Geffen sings much more on Blackfield II, and he does have a good singing voice and interesting accent.

"Epidemic" (Track 6) is incredibly dramatic and upbeat with an alternative sound. After 3 listens, it's my absolute fave BF song. SW lets out a wild cry around halfway through the song, which I'm sure he hasn't done before on any album of his material. Songs of this nature totally blow me away. As I write this review, I'm listening to the album for the 3rd time.

Too bad their older albums aren't available on CD - I still prefer receiving physical media when buying new albums.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best albums ever in the genre
I've owned this album since it came out and it's long overdue that I give kudos to these guys. Steven Wilson is brilliant to say the least and the album, simply, is fantastic. Read more

I decided to give Blackfield's second album a chance after being a tad impressed with their first album, but the results are a little less interesting this time around. Read more

3.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing, with two exceptions
There's no accounting for taste--well, not mine at least. Blackfield's first album boasted some fantastic songs, the best of which I think were Aviv Geffen's. Read more

I love the CD, but I can't listen to it with my wife. If you enjoy melancholia music and view yourself as a bit progressive, you will love it. Read more
