Modern Music Review
Working under the group name of 'Nine Horses' 'Snow Borne Sorrow' is a collaboration between David Sylvian, his brother and frequent collaborator Steve Jansen and electronic composer / remixer Burnt Friedman.
Very Well, in the record, in the middle of it, heartbeat-like sound waves, violins, Sylvian's extreme night-like vocals, attractive back female vocals. No!, not this way enough to describe an album like this. It's the most ridiculous thing to seek for the right words. Because you know that you're never well experienced to tell what music feels to the humanity. I'm sure of it, the feelings that i feel is the purest one. David Sylvian who is absolutely an idol, a genius. I had spent my long-night with his "Secrets Of The Beehive", "Rain Tree Crow" and my night lamp "Blemish". It's really imposible not to tell my adoration while i'm writing this.
Most of the songs seem waiting for a touch to appear, and if they find a connection to reach you that will be love at first sight. The Compositions are as perfect as full moon appearance, honestly i'd call this style as virgin sound. Because you never want to share Sylvian's voice, songs with someone else, and you want it as only yours.
lyrics from his Boy With The Gun:
He knows well his wicked ways
A course of bitterness
A grudge held from his childhood days
As if life had loved him less
Reading down his list of names
He ticks them one by one
He points the barrel at the sky
Firing shots off at the sun
i am the law and i am the king
I am the wisdom, listen to me sing
"Money For All" which includes some remix version of songs from previous Nine Horses album "The Banality of evil","Serotonin", and also two new songs ravishing "Money For All", an inviting alternative dance melody "Get the hell out". This shorten version of the songs was polished fairly good. Various instruments change the atmosphere from dark to blue, jazz to rock, bittersweet to melancholy, and you're finally full of satisfaction.
