4 stars Many people who got into Porcupine Tree and No-Man in the 1990's also took a look at Blackfield. This is an energetic if sad collaboration between SW and Aviv Geffen, who is very popular in Israel. It's sad because all the music is melancholy and based on minor chords. This is Wilson's forte. He really likes sad songs. He excels in the emotional venue of dissatisfaction with life. His best Porcupine Tree tracks are also sad songs. He finds that sad emotions brings out the best in high emotions. The catalog of Blackfield is great music that most people have never heard. They never had commercial success because they make music that is outside the mainstream and young people like the lame stream which is the core of the main stream. This compilation is the best they did up to 2018. 4.5 solid stars.
