As I do not own the first album, I can't comparize the two albums, but this one here surely is very good. I wouldn't have thought that Aviv Geffen is such a good songwriter, my favourite of this album is a composition by him, 'End of the World'. Other Highlights include Christenings, Some Day, Once, Miss U... really a wonderful Artpop album.

This is a nice "easy listening" pop/rock album with symphonic qualities. For some reason I can't get past Geffen's peculiar accent ... but musically it's quite good. There aren't any true highlights though, compared to the "real" Porcupine Tree albums - Steven Wilson is really just a guest star here.

They say you can recognize a good combination when they see it. It has been said about Simon & Garfunkel, McCartney & Lennon, Waters & Gilmour and many more. Some have said that even a totally coincidental mix between Aviv Geffen & Steven Wilson, is one of the following. After the first, successful album, and the tour - which was even more successful, after Blackfield have - almost literally - conquered Europe, the time has come to hear another Blackfield album.

Although the suprising fact that the album is called "Blackfield II" (Who would have
thought! :-)), the album is full of exciting song, that keeps the short legacy of the band - songs that deal with the inner parts of the human soul, the deepest depression and the enormous need for love. The structure of "Blackfield II" is very like the first: 10 tracks, the same one track sung by Geffen - when most of the album is sung by SW, and the same two tracks that are taken - suprisingly - from Aviv ... -> show full review
