David Sylvanian As A Philosopher - Leonardo Vittorio Arena review

Album Review

Once described as ‘the world’s most beautiful man’, the object of a cult-like following, David Sylvian’s iconic status has always had an uneasy if intriguing relation to his post-Japan trajectory. From the autumnal ruminations of Brilliant Trees through his relatively upbeat collaboration with Robert Fripp to the sparse, improvised and ravaged Manafon, his has been a journey far into uncharted musical and psychological hinterlands and a dismantling of all worldly claims.
