I just found this release at my local small Southern town cd store just tossed uncarigly into the 45 cent junk box. I felt quite a rush of enthusiasm when among the random nameless label compilations, soundtracks to Young Einstein, and promotional tunes to play in your new Scion's stereo I spotted the name Current 93. I immediately bought it while making soft giddy squeals like a little kid.
Despite the damage to the case, the cd and booklets remained unharmed. I lovingly replaced the case with a new one and gave the cd a caring home. And it did reward me.
My third Current 93 cd.
The cd consists of one 19 minute track that hearkens back to the spooky ambient stuff of old. However, Tibet singspeaks over the top of it much like in his folk compositions. His poetry is beautiful and yet confounding like an Edward Gorey comic. He makes his typical lyrical rounds of Bible quotes, utter misery brought on by the cold world, and Nazi refrences all help to paint the odd picture only he can. The music is at its root a repeated theme with some interjected found sounds and such. However, the repeated base is very catchy and strong emotionally compelling. Strangely, it seems to go by very quickly until suddenly fading away. The single track continues in silence for a few minutes until a lovely folk song suddely bursts forth with Tibet singing away. And then just as quickly as it appears it suddenly vanishes, ending the track. Although this odd ending seems out of place, I personally enjoy it. My love for inpulse and oddness appeals to it and I wouldn't respond to the cd quite the same without it.
All in all, it is a great release and I reccomned it for you if your a diehard fan, a new listener, or anyone interested in music as an art form.
This release is first in the "Before the Inmost Light" trilogy and its sale was intended to help pay for renovations to the grave of painter Louis Wain (1860-1939) as well as donations to his family. His art appears on this release.
