Entertainment Reviews:

Q - p.113
3 stars out of 5 -- "Visionary whimsy and an aura of genuinely spooky menace aside, BLACK SHIPS ATE THE SKY is largely notable for its impeccable guests..."
Magnet - p.93
"Dissertation-worthy references to almost every religion and mystic tradition, plus nursery rhymes, world history, Kafka, sci-fi and the blues!"
The Wire - p.53
"[T]he songs are complexly layered, challenging the listener to fathom their depths, shadows and shadings."
Mojo (Publisher) - p.108
4 stars out of 5 -- "[A] dark veil of strings encircle the skipping, six-string mantras, a perfectly elegant platform for David Tibet's astonishing, conviction-filled disquisitions."

Product Description:

Current 93: William Breeze, William Basinski, John Contreras, Michael Cashmore, Steve Stapleton, Ben Chasny, Amy Phillips.
Additional personnel: Clodagh Simonds, Marc Almond, Shirley Collins, Antony , Cosey Fanni Tutti, Bonnie "Prince" Billy.
Though Current 93 has in the past habitually blended industrial noises with folkier textures, the overall pastoral feel of its 2006 release BLACK SHIPS ATE THE SKY tends toward the latter. The album also features guest appearances from singers Bonnie "Prince" Billy, Marc Almond, and Antony Hegarty of Anthony & the Johnsons fame, all of whom contribute versions of the dark hymn "Idumea."
