Opium for my bus ride commute.
Is this music? Or a collection of organic/inorganic entities living through the masterful art of Bang, Endresen, et al?
The unique poetry helps us see from the plateau. Sylvian's warm voice keeps us humanly grounded so as not to float off completely.
A unique and important album.
It is heartbreakingly beautiful. One must listen to this album as a whole and again and again to appreciate its complexity and beauty.
If you like Sylvian and/or those wonderous Norwegian musicians like Bang, Honore and company, this is it.
