2002. Sometimes an album is released that you feel will be instantly embraced for it's beauty, for the emotional strings it pulls, for the pictures it paints. Instead ,the unthinkable happens- and that precious work simply falls between the cracks.
Perhaps it was the timing of "Requiem Settings" that caused such an oversight. It was The Silverman's aural reaction to the events of 9/11 and The World had it's right ear glued to the news channel.
Time for reappraisal with this remaster- although the enhanced sound only reflects how far technology has developed in recent years as this little pearl ALWAYS sounded great to these ears. EK
Jean Jacques Birge is an artist with a history so rich with good music, it's possible to forget that there's life outside this submarine. Hours of deep listening await the curious listener. Legendary Pink Dots
