Another stellar release...

"Can't go wrong with LPD, 9 Lives To Wonder" was created with The Silver Man on keyboards and exotic divices, Ryan Moore on bass and drums, Martijn de Kleer handling guitar and tympani, Niels van Hoornblower lives up to his surname and of course The Prophet Qa'Spel delivering the lyrics and playing keyboards and destroyed lyre. On this very special occasion Cevin Key of Skinny Puppy is the Pink Dots special guest.

AVAILABLE AT SOLEILMOON records website and Strange Fortune's website for $12.00, don't pay more than this from someone who doesn't know or care about the music. $20.00 used? what a rip off!"
Legeandary Pink Dots - '9 Lives To Wonder' (Soleilmoon)

"Good mid-'90's Legendary Pink Dots release. More mellow and laid back than their more recent titles, but still very decent. Best described as neo-psychedelic. Seen them play small clubs twice now. You can never tell what 'deep album tracks' they just might play on any given U.S. tour. Tracks here I was somewhat impressed the most with were "Madame Guillotine", the hypnotic "Oasis Malade", the ten-minute "Nine Shades To The Circle" and "Terra Firma Welcome". Always good to check out one of many, {many} LPD discs that you haven't heard yet."
If I have to get specific, probably their 5th best album.

"There are scores of Pink Dots albums (well over 30) and I have probably 3/4 of them... out of them all, "9 Lives to Wonder" is one of the very best. This album is very laid back, very mellow, and always ethereal. LPD has always had a penchant for stunningly beautiful, melancholy tracks (see Crushed Velvet or Maria Dimension) but ( Lives to Wonder removes a bit of the passion from the formula. What does this mean, though? It makes for more languid trakcs that feel as if they are almost drifting through a fog. Certainly nothing here is like the beautiful but emotionally charged "New Tomorrow" (one of my favorite LPD track, off Crushed Velvet) or "Tanz der China Dolls" (off the Legendary Pink Box).In particular, four songs stand out for me on the album. "Siren" is eerie, deft, charming, and a little disturbing. "The Angel Trail" is my favorite song on the album, a sublime lullaby is the only way to describe it. Really, some people I know hate "The Angel Trail" but if this album didn't have that song on here, I'd be inclined to dock this album a star. The song is that good. "A Crack in Melancholy Time" is straight-out techno-industrial, and more accessible anything this side of Nine Inch Nails. Finally, "Hotel Z" is an arching, epic, cosmic ballad that perhaps you may need to be in the proper "mood" (if you understand my drift) to appreciate.Don't pass this album up."
