Current 93 - Soft Black Stars
Soft Black Stars is a minimal, depressing album by David Tibet, focusing mainly around his unique vocals and piano melodies. the songs mostly follow the same formula but David's odd ramblings keep the album fresh. while Judas As Black Moth is creepy to some extent, the album is overall very relaxing. the last song, Chewing on Shadows, is the only song that consists of more than just piano and vocals, with a ghost violin included (i thought it was a distorted acoustic guitar until i checked, nonetheless it's a lovely effect).
