Prog Reviewer
4 stars This is the first part of the Inmost Light triptych, the central piece of which is the All The Pretty Little Horses album. This EP essentially presents an ambient introduction to the sequence, a mournful dark ambient collaboration between David Tibet and Nurse With Wound's Steven Stapleton, Tibet's most long-term collaborator and someone whose presence is rarely far away whenever the Current 93 project steers into this sort of dark ambient waters.

The piece is distinguished among the project's ambient works by the way archaic sounds like gramophone noises are used to construct its soundscape, lending it an old-timey Victorian feel that perfectly fits the Arthur Machen-inspired concept of the triptych. That said, it is very much a prologue, and is best experienced as a prelude to the All the Pretty Little Horses album. A compilation release, titled simply The Inmost Light, brings all three of the pieces of the trilogy together and is perhaps the best way to experience it.

Warthur | 4/5 |
