Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Remix projects are often commercially motivated ventures that jettison everything that made a track personal and expressive in favor of thudding, generic dance beats that will get played in clubs and on the radio. But as is usually the case, singer David Sylvian has a different approach. Nine Horses is his project with his brother and drummer, Steve Jansen, and electronica artist Burnt Friedman. They take songs from the 2006 release Snow Borne Sorrow and find new dimensions in their already multifaceted songs. These are more reimaginings than remixes. The slow electro-soul of "The Banality of Evil" becomes an ethereal New Orleans dirge that brings out Sylvian's baleful lyrics like a lost voodoo prayer. "Wonderful World" emphasizes Keith Lowe's slinky double bass line, underscoring the already smoke-filled jazz noir feel this track had in its original form. Stina Nordenstam sings the chorus on that, and the remix makes her fractured soprano an even more startling contrast with Sylvian's dolorously fudgy tenor. Nordenstam takes the lead on the hallucinatory lullaby of "Birds Sing for Their Lives," originally a Japanese-only bonus track. There are also new tracks: the funky and acerbic "Money for All" and the ominous, but still funky "Get the Hell Out," the latter full of glitchy beats and chamber strings. Both are reheated in alternate versions as well. You can't dance to the remixes of Money for All, but you can go deeper into the world of David Sylvian. --John Diliberto

5.0 out of 5 stars Nine Horses Ride Again January 26, 2007
Format:Audio CD
David Sylvian, Burnt Friedman and Steve Jansen have fortunately made the decision to continue working together under the moniker of NINE HORSES. This eight track EP begins with the title track, "Money For All", a collaboration between Sylvian and Friedman. Jazzy vibraphone and clarinet riffs are intertwined with bluesy guitar licks and folky harmonica lines,...all casually placed atop a slightly trippy hip hop groove. The song also features the soulful harmonies from the very same backing vocalists who helped frame a large portion of the melody lines on Nine Horses' debut, Snow Borne Sorrow. Sylvian's lyrics seem to be filled with veiled attacks against the US President Bush and the Republican Party (referred to here as "a mean looking elephant"), basically hitting them hard where they purport to be the strongest: homeland security, capitalism, and the neo-conservative urge for war rather than diplomacy. Yet the cultural climate maintained by the nation's citizens is also taken to task: the endless need for foreign oil, the downside to nationalistic pride resulting in an 'us versus them' mentality, the overall greed that is prevalent in capitalism and destructive vices that many willingly take part in.

"Get The Hell Out", written by Jansen and Sylvian, is built upon a funked up techno beat which is somewhat similar to the recent sound of Massive Attack. Staccato synthesized horn kicks punctuate the track throughout the relatively aggressive verses, while Sylvian's smooth Fender Rhodes and a highly orchestrated sampling of violins permeate the much gentler bridges. Though Sylvian's lyrics are uncharacteristically less descriptive than usual, it appears as though the song's subject matter revolves around an abused woman in need of escape from her current situation.

2.0 out of 5 stars 2 1/2 stars-- New songs and remixes. August 14, 2007
Format:Audio CD
"Money for All" is an EP released by Nine Horses, a collaborative effort between David Sylvian, Steve Jansen and Burnt Friedman. Newcomers to the project are advised to start with the band's album, "Snow Borne Sorrow".

Having dispensed with that, this EP consists of three new songs, two of which receive a remix, and three remixes of pieces from "Snow Borne Sorrow".

As for the material itself, the new pieces find Sylvian hearkening back to a decade ago-- looped beats and instruments and edgy, aggressive, nearly spoken word vocals and dominate both the title track and "Get the Hell Out". It reminds me strongly of the "Little Girls with 99 Lives" material that surfaced on the "I Surrender" single, but like that material, it sounds almost awkward and tentative at times. Admittedly, Sylvian's chorus on "Get the Hell Out" is so fantastic, it's hard not to love it. The third new piece, Birds Sing For Their Lives", is a vocal feature for Stina Nordenstam. I have to be honest, I don't love her voice and given this, it's hard for me to seriously consider the piece-- certainly the backing track has a nice, lurching electronica sound, but Nordenstam's vocal doesn't sit right with me. "Money For All" and "Get the Hell Out" both get remixes-- the former doesn't add much-- adding a few pauses and playing with some of the loops, the latter respins the piece as a churning, violin-driven number, adding a number of overtones and colors.

The remixes of the material from "Snow Borne Sorrow", like the ones for Sylvian's previous effort ("The Good Son vs. the Only Daughter" remix album for "Blemish") are often dramatically different from the previous versions.

5.0 out of 5 stars There is so little music this good April 7, 2009
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I buy about ten CDs a week. I work at finding great music. The criteria is simple. Excite the senses. Banal retreads of stale grooves just don't cut much mustard. If you have a sophisticated audio palette, this music has got to be at the pinnacle.

Talk Talk's best, Roxy's Music's talent mixed with a unique sound and original arrangements. Stop reading and buy the recording.

3.0 out of 5 stars TRENDING TOWARDS STYLISTIC TENDRILS September 18, 2007
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
More so than the lovely "Snow", "Money for All" strikes this long time Sylvian listener as just a little more than a stylistic almagam that seeks to enfold a number of different currents within the current scene, and as such holds together just barely. Nothing wrong with that, but there's the sense of an undo level of reliance on the always remarkable character and presence of Sylvian's voice and some truly amazing production. There's still that persistent jazzy inflection that's been around since "Brilliant Trees" and the clearly powerful and conscientious lyrics so lacking in pretty much all vocal music these days, baby. These strengths are sadly offset by less convincing affectations in voicing and structure that, after several listenings, start to tilt towards novelty. So, long and short, since it's mostly remixes let's say that I'm happy that the experiments are being shared, but find myself still waiting for the real thing.
