My first venture into The Silverman's solo work. This album is a journey, the first track is long and demands your attention. And boy is it a great ride.
Favorite track: Note of Longing/Dawn's Underwater Light/State of Union.
"State of Union" first emerged as a homemade cdr release on The Pink Dots' own TEKA label back in 2001.However Beta-Lactam Ring Records chief Chris was so taken with this release ,he proposed a full blown reissue as part of the label's "Black" series in 2006.
It's a rich colourful journey too...sometimes you'd swear that you're standing on a deserted platform on a distant planet unsure if it's actually a train making that peculiar noise,uncertain of what it says on the ticket,.nervous of where you'll end up sleeping tonight. Don't worry, the rewards are manifold.
