5 stars A trully masterpiece!!! It's hard finding words to describe PH's "The Silent Corner..." I believe in this album PH's lyrics are more ingenius and matured than ever. E.g. "Forsaken Gardens" is a hymn to human nature and wonders if a man can really be on his own. The final answer is stunning: "Through the grief, through the pain, our flowers need each other's rain...." Or what one can say about "modern"? It stands for mankind's today's attitude and treatment on society. The music of all the songs is deeply emotioned and Hammill's lyrics...well simply the best. "A louse is not a home" is one of my favorites and it leaves me with a feeling of paranoia and insanity as it speaks of loneliness, "creepy" visitors in our rooms and image distortion. Honestly, one of the best albums I 've ever heard.
