3 stars In the late 80s, David Sylvian released 2 albums in collaboration with former Can bassist Holger Czukay. Although they were released a year apart, both this album and 'Flux and Mutability' were recorded - very quickly - at the same sessions. This, the first to come out, is a pleasant piece of electronic ambient experimentation. The pieces are both slow, statley and largely rhythm free, but like Fripp and Eno's 'No Pussyfooting', a surprising amount of development takes place as the music unfolds. Defintely non essential, but if you like Tangerine Dream's Zeit this has a similar atmosphere.

5 stars I'm not familiar with David Sylvian music. I've listened to this album because it features the legendary electronic alchimist Holger Czukay (ex-CAN). We can easily perceive his signature in this galactic journey through floating-haunted synthesised waves and burgeoning dronescapes. The result is astonishing and constantly fascinating, almost at the same musical level to Czukay's ultimate pre-ambient masterpiece Canaxis. The album is made of two epic-majestic cinematic soundscapes. It delivers a cascade of drone chords sustained by ephemeral-angelic-melancholic harmonies and sometimes spaced out esoteric moods in the genre ever developed in early electo-krautrockin' excursions and in glory subaquatic-primordial ambient hymns (Steve Roach, Vidna Obmana...) Plight & Premonition is not a revolutionary effort but it is a top class introspective-brainey experience. It can be conceived as one of the summits of nebulous ambient music. Moreover it is constantly accessible and relaxing without being new age. This is a must have for neophytes and kosmische kraut lovers.

4 stars Seeing as we're going through a mini heat-wave here in Scotland, I thought I'd give this album an airing for the first time in 7 years. And you know, I'd forgotten how good this sounds compared with the tidal wave of ambient recordings that have been released since 1987. Plight and Premoniti ... (read more)
