More Info

Marc Almond returns with his 22nd solo album ‘Chaos and a Dancing Star’. The album was made in collaboration with producer, songwriter and pianist Chris Braide, who also worked on ‘The Velvet Trail’. An Ivor Novello winner and a Grammy nominee, Braide’s many high profile credits include work with artists such as Sia, Lana Del Rey and Halsey. The duo started writing for the album three years ago, their initial plan for a prog rock album evolving into something leaning more towards strident pop melodies.

The title informs many of the album’s themes, and impermanence is also a recurring topic. It emerges in various forms: mortality in ‘Black Sunrise’ and ‘Dust’, as well as saying farewell and leaving a legacy in ‘Cherry Tree’ and ‘When The Stars Are Gone’. The jaunty ‘Slow Burn Love’ provides light amongst the darkness, with its hope of finding an ever-lasting love rather than one that’s “over before you blink your eyes” - a counterpoint to Marc’s common premise that love inevitably proves to be a disappointment.

Needs a bit of an edit on the song lengths.

Great colour orange vinyl, songs are good, but a bit of editing would have done some a favour or two, as there are some unnecessary guitar solos etc on the ends of them that detract from the beauty of the song, but its not bad.
