Wings Of Joy Forever
Both come with a veritable slew n' slurry of bonus tracks from non-album releases, and are both transcendental, completely captivating and in full debut WINGS...an essential-ness of a rare (dis)order by virtue of having the unutterably stunning singlesTomorrow's Tears and Adoration along with the absolutely freefalling death drive torment of Sixth Of May. FOREVER, being slightly less sprawling, with an eastern, desert wind feel to it shows a discernible, though not detrimental, influence of their time touring as support to The Cure (see adorable single Jewel), following that debut. No one's saying you have to swim the same deep waters but this is truly music from somewhere beneath the air, as Yeats and Blake may have had it.
