Editorial Reviews

Album-length premastered collection of No-Man B-sides shows off the band's gift for constructing velvety, contemplative textures and dreamy portraits of passing moods. Steven Wilson's gracefully sampled atmospherics are buoyed up by onetime Japan players Steve Jansen, Richard Barbieri and Mick Karn. The sort of album that starts off as a chill-out but ends up turning you on. 5 tracks. Hidden Art. 2002.

An unexpectedly essential EP, "Heaven Taste" is a compilation of B-sides from the early part of No-Man's career, including the lengthy title track. Having said that, No-Man couldn't've done a better job selecting the tracks they stuck on this record, eschewing the sort of remix fodder that shows up on many of these sort of collections for some fantastic material and providing an unusual sense of cohesiveness on the record.

Opening with "Only Baby" B-side "Long Day Fall", it's clear there's some special material on here-- a moody violin solo, synthesized rhytnms a great vocal and an unusual backing vocal chant (something I've never heard from No-Man) leave you scratching your head as to why this one didn't end up on a record. Likewise for Flowermouth outtake "Babyship Blue"-- funky basslines and programmed beats, noisy guitars and endless layers of sound set up a fantastic platform for Bowness, excused from Flowermouth I suspect only because it didn't quite fit the groove of that record.

The EP takes a turn for the distinctly moody after that, "Sweetheart Raw" b-side "Bleed" may be the most morbid piece in the band's catalog, churning and downtempo with a downright wounded vocal from Bowness before closing with almost an industrial sound, it's really got something going on. Likewise, a cover of Nick Drake's "Road" (from Brittle Days - A Tribute to Nick Drake) uses a descending motif and a detached vocal to great effect.

I mainly purchased this for the stellar title track, but the other tracks are also excellent. "Babyship Blue" also became a favorite. That title track really does it, though, and with Jansen, Barbieri, and Karn in the mix, you can't go wrong. All hail, Bowness and Wilson!

The usual serving of musical tapestries provided by Steven Wilson. One of the best purveyors of old and new progressive rock.
