4 stars The Blackfield story continues.

Once again Steven Wilson and Aviv Geffen managed to deliver a fine, catchy progressive pop/rock album. Just like Blackfield self titled debut Blackfield II consists out of ten short, poppy rock songs with all great melodies. You could say that the catchy melodies is really what Blackfield is all about and what makes their albums really work. Sometimes they play heavier-edged songs, like the intro Once and Epidemic , and sometimes very delicate slow-paced tracks like for example 1.000 people and This Killer .

One distinction with their debut album is that on Blackfield II Aviv Geffen does more of the lead vocals, and he should, because he is a gifted singer and this makes the collaboration between the two stand out even more. The track Where Is My Love is not a new song as it was already available as one of the three bonus tracks on their debut. My personal favourite tracks at the moment would probably be My Gift of Silence and End of the World . Simply beautiful!

Conclusion; once again Blackfield manages to deliver another great record with 10 catchy, melodic pop/rock songs. For now Blackfield (I) is still my favourite of the II. Nevertheless 4 stars well deserved. (Probably closer to 4.5 though)
