David Silvian has had a great number of avant-guarde and esoteric collaborations since his days in the Glam Rock group "Japan". His solo projects are varied in their emotional content. His maturity as an artist has had a proper period of gestation and he brings a certain quality of truth to his musicwithout fear of how it might be percieved.
With Blemish, Sylvian crooning voice seems to wander aimless and introspective in an eerie landscape of desolation. Noise and electric guitar drones become dunes and jagged rocks. The album is open, well done and quite soothing.
