Tim Bowness and Steven Wilson’s first No-Man album in 11 years, Love You To Bits finds this English art-pop duo in very fine form, particularly considering they’re into their fourth decade. Completely different to the melancholia of Schoolyard Ghosts when we last heard from them, it consists of two 20-minute long and multi-segmented pieces. Love You To Bits could be the group’s best release to date, and certainly their most ambitious.
First released in 2001, here is another chance for you to get your hands on Returning Jesus, a key statement from no-man. A sublimely subtle suite of art-rock songwriting with a smooth, lush, ECM-jazz instrumental palette. This reissue is available as a double LP or as a double CD, with the CD edition also including a stack of b-sides, demos and other associated rarities.
