Prog Reviewer
3 stars Reminiscent, perhaps, of where Porcupine Tree might have gone if they had persisted in the indie rock/art rock direction of Stupid Dream and Lightbulb Sun instead of taking a left turn into the metallic territory of In Absentia, Blackfield's debut album presents the usual Porcupine Tree spacey melancholy spiced up by the contributions of Aviv Geffen. Although later Blackfield releases would see Geffen take the lead on the project, this debut is more of a Steven Wilson-led affair, so those who are coming to Blackfield via Wilson's numerous other projects may find this the easiest point to get on. Not a classic, but competent stuff and might be worth it if you really, truly, want to hear more Lightbulb Sun-esque stuff with even less prog influences.
Warthur | 3/5 |
