It kicks off with a couple of typical suitably familiar Blackshaw tracks which totally are the business. The opener 'The Lifting Of The Veil' sounds very soundtracky indeed. Very emotive and it's perfectly complimented with Van Willemz lute. The title track is one of those cyclical guitar ragas which Blackshaw has seemed to master pretty quickly. It's vintage sounding gear and if you ask me is one of the finest pieces of music I've heard in a while. In fact I think it's the best thing I've heard him do since 'Sunshrine' (my favourite tune he's done).
'How The Enencombered Soul Advises' is a dark piece of music which is as claustrophobic as it is sleazy. It makes me think of dark alleys full of tramp juice filled men wavering their filth bodies surrounded by scraggy death cats..... It's a dark piece of music with cats miaowing in the background (oddly enough). If you're interested the cat is called Bun Bun.
Then it all ends with 'In Him Is No Sin' which is more cyclical loveliness complimented with some warm electronics and that lute thing again. Works a right proper treat and the two together seem to have developed some musical chemistry.
Put simply this album is really good. 4 tracks oozing with passion and emotion. Stick with it as it just gets better and better... BTW Mr. Blackshaw, it's 6.50 an hour plus 'benefits'
