Don't know a huge amount about this Nick Hudson feller. Considered by the likes of Current 93's David Tibet (who contributes linear notes here), Julian Cope and Meredith Monk as a composer of great skill and talent, Hudson's work is obviously well regarded in the right circles. Personally I struggle with this earnest style of modern classical songwriting. In parts I enjoy the use of ambient and synth drone as a tool for creating tension and atmosphere in a track but an over reliance on morbid subject matter and general compositional bleakness is often to much for me to stomach. Saying that Hudson has some great moments on 'My Antique Son' and he's obviously a talented performer and songwriter. His piano work in particular is very skilled and inevitably captivating. So, if you're a fan of grand and progressive songwriting best suited to the alternative music hall then this one is definitely for you.
