Real Track List
Luis Miguel Arbelaez | Colombia | 03/29/2005
(4 out of 5 stars)

"You guys at amazon made a mistake using the first verses of the main track as the tracklist of this cd.

Here it goes the correct track order:

1 The Long Shadow Falls
2 All The Pretty Little Horsies
3 Calling For Vanished Faces I
4 The Inmost Night
5 The Carnival Is Dead And Gone
6 The Blood Bells Chime
7 Calling For Vanished Faces II
8 The Frolic
9 The Inmost Light
10 Twilight, Twilight, Nihil, Nihil
11 The Inmost Light Itself
12 All The Pretty Little Horses
13 Patripassian

I like this "Apocalyptic Folk" cd better than the previous no-sense noise experiences of Dave Tibet. Pretty nice contribution of Nick Cave!!!"
Great album
Luis Miguel Arbelaez | 08/15/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)

"One of Current 93's best albums, this CD mixes beautiful folk, twisted psychedlia, and great production. If you aren't familiar with Current 93, this is probably the best album to start with in that it's accessible and sometimes achingly beautiful.The album as a whole derives loosely from the folk song "All the Pretty Little Horses," and develops into a sprawling fairy-tale like soundscape (think William Blake) with eschatological tendencies. Unlike much of Current 93's earlier work, the religious elements here aren't simply taken for granted. The album, through the motif of darkness and death, suggests a universe abandoned by the gods yet mired in the metaphysics of loss."The Bloodbells Chime," dedicated to the painter Louis Wain is thought by many Current 93 fans to be the group's most beautiful song. Also, Nick Cave contributes wonderfully to the title track and a spoken-word piece at the end."
Might just be Current 93's best work

(5 out of 5 stars)

"The centerpiece of "The Inmost Light" trilogy (bookended by the sublimely experimental EPs "Where the Long Shadows Fall" and "The Starres Are Marching Sadly Home"), "All the Pretty Little Horses" represents a culmination of Current 93's folk period--as though everything David Tibet had done since the "Happy Birthday" single had been leading up to this.It's an album of great majesty and depth, achingly beautiful and profoundly eerie at the same time. The sampled choirs, Nick Cave's deadpan yet heartfelt vocal cameo, and, of course, Tibet's apocalyptic lyrics and unique voice all conspire to make this an essential disc to own."
