商品説明

Things were better honed for No-Man on Flowermouth, released a year after the band's debut. Minus Ben Coleman (although you'd never guess because he appears on seven of nine tracks), Tim Bowness and Steven Wilson were aided by Robert Fripp, Ian Carr, Steve Jansen, and Richard Barbieri (who recorded the excellent set Flame with Bowness in the same year). Beginning with the epic Angel Gets Caught in the Beauty Trap, which is almost ten minutes on the original and longer on the reissue, things flow as Bowness' soothing vocal gives way to solos by Carr and Fripp. You Grow More Beautiful is another hit that might have been, while Animal Ghost is what Arthur Ransom, the author of Swallows and Amazons, might have sounded like had he chosen music instead of literature -- a very English affair with a meandering piano line (removed on the reissue) and flute solo. Soft Shoulders is the closest to a throwaway, but Shell of a Fighter restores order, an enthralling piece expanding to nearly eight minutes of lilting pastoral verse, quiet passages of electronics, and an all out storm of squally guitars and ferrocious drumming. Teardrop Falls, one of their best, is a paced yet graceful pop dance tune. Flowermouth has serenity, too, in Watching Over Me, which may have been better following Shell. Simple uses a sample courtesy of Lisa Gerrard of Dead Can Dance, roaming through contemporary club beats to reach a haunting climax. Things Change is the endgame, with the lyrics You're leaving me behind you, I hate the way things change sung in earnest. Gentle again, giving way to Wilson's emotionally wrought guitar mimicking the gut wrenching agony of love lost. A masterpiece of writing and playing recommended beyond reason. ~ Kelvin Hayes, Rovi

あくまで主観だが、No-Manのみならず、Steven Wilsonの全プロジェクト中最高の完成度を持つ作品。 異常に緊密で緊張感溢れる全体のデザインの中で、個々の音の美しさが際立っている。 買って損はない一枚。
