This is the best cd that has ever been made.

It's a disk to meditate to, and to quietly think on the ways of God and our own limited understanding of His ways and really of the world as a whole.
Jonathon M. Rose
What supports the meaning of the words is incredible passion and enthusiasm of Tibet's vocal which has meaning within itself.

This is, without any doubt, one of the best c93 records. It is incredibly cohesive both in music and quality/imagery of the lyrics (it is said in the liner notes it should be regarded as one piece of music), but it doesn't get even close to being boring at ANY point of the whole recording. Why? Because the substance, the meaning, the point the album develops from the very beginning til the end is extremely powerful, completely focused and vivid. What supports the meaning of the words is incredible passion and enthusiasm of Tibet's vocal which has meaning within itself. You could listen to the WAY he expresses himself without listening to the actual words and actually hear everything. Every little subtlety is there in his voice. Also, his poetry is extremely inspired, it always is, but on this record particularly. The music supports the vocal perfectly. It is consisted of Cashmore's guitar compositions which are really incredible and very effective drones by Steven Stapleton which really do add a surreal and deeper tone to it all, shifting music to some other plane (as if it wasn't shifted already). The drones swirl around Cashmore's guitar and Tibet's voice taking compositions out of time and space. This piece of art is timeless as it deals with things that shall exist as long as there are humans. Do not miss this delicate spiritual experience.

I may be biased toward the calmer Gnostic side of this band. So, please consider that disclaimer when I say this is my favourite piece of Tibet's work to date. What is finished in 'All the Pretty Little Horses' is what starts here.
Heavily Inspired by Pascale and Wain (*again), this album is slow, deliberate, and wide of heart. It is not the rolicking fever of Lashtal and the like. It is internal and lovely.
Enjoy

Taking the styles developed on Thunder Perfect Mind which took well-developed folk formats and very lush scores similar to the band Sands, Of Ruine or Some Blazing Star is truly an inspirational and original album which is probably the pinnacle of David Tibets creative talent. Pulling away from his tape loop styles slightly this album mixes the right amount of noise and melody to make it an album that always has great replay value. Owning this album for nearly a decade I never am bored by it and rate highly

This album should be played in conjunction with a reading of The Secret of the Rosary, particularly "the Seventh Rose", as well as Lives of the Saints, with special emphasis on the lives of Saints Genevieve and Julian. An intense and unhurried masterpiece, Of Ruine Or Some Blazing Star is like one rose in a decade of the Rosary. Definitely one of Current 93's best. Let us go to the Rose, indeed.
