Album Review

Legendary Pink Dots, The – ?Your Children Placate You From Premature Graves” – [ROIR]

Numa   6/21/2006   A Library, CD

Saucerful of Prozac. 25 years and more albums than I can count have elapsed since the formation of The Legendary Pink Dots, and Edward Ka-Spel’s emotionally charged lyrical well is still going strong. Songs dealing with psychic surgical procedures and sleazy shysters highlight the emotive depth charges contained within. Phil ‘Silverman? Knight’s electronics and keyboards carry the bellicose feeling into the night. Woodwinds supplied by Niels Van Hoorn provide just the right amount of lounge feel. Strings are once again covered by Martjin de Kleer. I was wondering what would happen if Syd Barrett, Roger Waters, and Leonard Cohen had stayed underground and collaborated together, it might have sounded something like this. Give way to your affliction, lie down on your back in this finely crafted boat, and drift down the stream. — Numa
