5 stars Great collaboration between Porcupine Tree's Steven Wilson and Israeli singer/songwriter Aviv Geffen. If you like Porcupine Tree and Opeth's Damnation this album is a MUST HAVE!

The album contains 10 short, but yet very powerful and melodical pop/rock songs. Not too progressive, but since we all know Steven Wilson is behind it it is certainly prog-related. I would even say that BLACKFIELD is less poppy than Steven Wilson's other project with Tim Bowness called "No-Man". All ten songs are great, but my personal favourites are probably "Blackfield", "Pain" and "The Hole in Me", because these songs are a bit more "up-tempo" and all have very catchy choruses, but when you listen to the album more often you will also really start to like the more delicate songs like "Lullaby", "Summer", "Cloudy Now" and "Hello". This is a CD you can just listen to over and over again (like Opeth's Damnation) without getting bored.

The only small negative remark I could make is that Aviv Geffen could have done more of the leadvocals. This would made the collaboration even stand out a bit more. Maybe this will be done on their second album...


4.5 stars well deserved. (Rounded up to 5 stars this time)
