Sunday Times - Nine Horses "Snow Borne Sorrow"

20.10.05

You’d hesitate to describe any of David Sylvian’s post-Japan albums as easy going, but for every release that is almost cussedly opaque, there is another that flirts with accessibility. For his new project with his brother, Steve Jansen, and Burnt Friedman, Sylvian thrillingly unites these poles within single songs. Wonderful World, its lyric a trademark personal/societal discourse on decay, collapse and renewal, nods to avant-jazz, cop-show noir and the verbal rhythms of Broadway, decorated with a cascading Ryuichi Sakamoto piano line. The remaining eight tracks maintain the opener’s sense of exploration. Superb. Four stars.
