4 stars Blackfield 1 and 2 were two of my favourite albums, I've listened to them regularly since I first acquired them, welcome to my DNA and IV were quite frankly dreadful, Steve Wilson's input obviously the missing factor. Then came news of Blackfield V, the cover picture indicating the return of the collaboration and style of the first album was a very welcome sign of things to come, I wasn't disappointed. The album is not the same as the first two, it's better! The sound and make up of the songs are very different and need more than one or two listening's to fully appreciate. I'm not going to give a description of each track as I like them all, though the 2nd to last track, "Lonely Soul" reminds me a little too much of a TV theme tune, the name of which currently escapes me. At 44 minutes I found myself wanting more, a good size for vinyl but hardly fills a CD or blue-ray, which incidentally I would heartily recommend as well worth the extra pound or two. Finally upon reading the credits I find Steve Wilson's input on the song writing to be much less than I thought, His production and musical skills still shine through on what can only be described as an absolute triumph of song writing from Aviv Geffen, sir, I forgive you for Welcome to my DNA and IV!
