I agree with you Nezzico ....it's a great pleasure to listen to the new release.
I have received a copy of Tom's Cd and it is so hard to put into words what I feel...it is beautiful music, so fine, delicate, gentle and ( what I like very much ) just a little eerie...and strange... Lucifer's Grief is a really, really powerful and haunting piece of music...it's like reaching the deepest recesses of the subconscious...or the edge of consciousness...the place where we meet another world or reality...where we know there is more but we don't know what it is...very profound....and it did unnerve me the first time I heard it..
I listened to the album coming home on the train from London on Friday and it was amazing, I just looked out of the window and felt totally weightless...it sounds funny I know, but I did! ...I wasn't in that train! It was how I imagine deep meditation must be. And I liked that experience.
I think you are right, Nezzico, when you say that Tom and Mike could work together again...how wonderful that would be...a lot of time has gone by, but if ever two people were well suited musically and in a creative way, then it is them! Just my opinion, but Tom seems to understand something so subtle in music, the way it moves along with its many changes and surprises, that I have only ever really heard in Mike's music.
I know I will be playing The Secret Life of Angels a lot...and I hope for more one day...
....second to the right and straight on till morning....
You heard me before
Yet you hear me again
Then I die
Till I call me again
