'Thunder Perfect Mind' is a folk opus by Current 93. Although it's intimidatingly long, with sixteen tracks, one of which is over ten minutes long, the group's twelfth album is still engaging and unnerving. Wikipedia lists it as 'apocalyptic folk' and I can't do much better than that. It's the first time the LP has been released on vinyl since its first pressing way back in 1992. Out on Spheres.

- Thunder Perfect Mind by Current 93
9/10 Richard 7th December 2018
A double LP reissue for one of the classic Current 93 LP's which every Tibet loving fan (David, not the region) will want in their collection. As with all C93 releases Tibet's vocal is the driving force, so as always if you are averse to his unique sytle this is not going to win you over. It's a pretty gentle affair, with lulling guitar and various acoustic instrumentation creating the atmosphere. There is some intensity in places to get you out of your comfort zone, but tracks like 'A Sadness Song' and 'The Descent of Long Satan and Babylon' are really quite gorgeous, and make this a pretty essential purchase. Also includes vocal contrbutions from Shirley Collins, and the late, great John Balance.
