5 stars In 1987 David Sylvian released his fourth solo album Secrets Of The Beehive. Definitely on a par with his wonderful debut " Brilliant Trees", yet more mature and accessible. When one listens to early Japan and the innocent naivety some of the music displays, the leap Sylvian took on his solo ventures created a significant lunge forward to intriguing, pensive and deep thinking music.

Sylvian works with some great musicians like Mark Isham and D. Thompson, marked contributors to the respective trumpet and double bass. The album holds up pretty much flawlessley. The high point without doubt " When Poets Dreamed Of Angels", some exquisite accoustic guitar flickering between stereo corners, overlayed by Sylvian's velvet voice and the song fades with a Shakti/Raga like percussion interplaying with perfect accoustic guitar that smack of that genius John Maclaughlin. Truly a real gem from the 80's. And that is just one song! The rest of the album is consistently of highest quality. One of Crossover's finest albums. Essentially missing something if you do not have it.
