Current 93 - Soft Black Stars (1998) Retail CD
Whilst Current 93's early work saw mainstay David Tibet wrestling with ideas on religion, apocalypse and the world at large, 1996's "Inmost Light" trilogy saw him turn his gaze inwards, examining his own life in uncomfortable depth. This exceptional album takes this even further. Paring down the C93 sound to just piano and Tibet's haunting and disturbed voice, these songs are intensly personal, an uneasy and, at times, genuinely distressing look into the author's emotional life. Clearly an examination of loss, probably death, David Tibet frames his most touching, poetic and upsetting lyricsmore… to date with simple yet enthralling piano lines, written by long term collaborator Michael Cashmore. Only on the final track does the trademark C93 sound belatedly appear, with Steven Stapleton (C93's regular producer) and Christoph Heemann creating a cut-up, drone-fuelled atmosphere for Tibet's epilogue.This is not an easy album to enjoy. But it is a compelling, emotive journey through loss, grief and personal darkness which repays every listen. Highest recommendation possible.
