4 stars Never a fan of folk music at all my knowledge about Curret 93 was restricted to works as Nature Unveiled and Dogs Blood Rising, terrifying opuses that really makes me feel frightened. The development of David Tibet's music over the years was very diverse finding its main focus on what we can call (with some restrictions) neofolk of British pedigree. This album is beautiful but still terrifying in a very different way than the others mentioned above. It's the most important thing on the genre that I have heard in the last ten years. You cannot really describe it and listening to fragments just don't help either; try to catch it the way you can and listen to the full piece while reading Rob Young's "Electric Eden" and you'll get a glimpse of the development of English folk music to its nineteenth century roots till today. Fascinating and essential for music lovers with a taste for adventure and brave enough to face his innermost fears. Prog? I don't think so but who cares? For me is a 5 star-album that gets only four because you can't call it prog in a proper way.
