4 stars David Sylvian leads, with their particular and unique voice and style, a refined set of songs inclined to ambient music, tinged with jazz and electronic. Its main partners are here percussionist Steve Jansen, also with his contribution on keyboards and Bernd Friedmann on toy piano, keyboards and synth ms 20, among others. At times the music becomes monotonous, with few variations. In others it is extremely nice and well orchestrated. In this second facet, are: Darkest Bird, A History of Holes, experimentation of Snow Borne Sorrow and Serotonin and beauty of The Day The Earth Stole Heaven and the sharp end of The Librarian, perhaps the best song. It is worth mentioning that the pace never stops being gentle and slow with no major leaks.
