The placement of the vocals in the overall mix is key. In all, this is a stellar example of dark music. Fall asleep to this and bad dreams will ensue. Reply Notify me 8 Helpful. Add a Video.

I feel the impact of the first album took them both by surprise - both were used to critical acclaim, yes, but Murder Ballads captured the essence of a world which remains safely in years gone by, a mysterious world predating everything we surround ourselves with in this end-of-the-pier peepshow pocket of time before we leap beyond the overblown Millennium time-marker into the 21st century.
If there is a weakness in this album, it is in the source material - the songwriting soon reveals itself to be very generic.
Out of all thirteen "Murder Ballads", the third track on this album is without doubt the most sympathetic and sad, where two Brothers, in sibling rivalry, wrestle for the affections of their Sister.
One is presumably accidentally stabbed by the others sheathed knife. The final track has Brother killing Brother again, this time over the destruction of a tree. In this one the surviving Brother uses a similar lie to that of the murderer from "Lucy Wan" - that the blood on his shirt is that of his greyhound. Small, petty criticisms compared with the magnitude of the songs.
The ambience from the two earlier albums is somehow even colder, more chilling in this third instalment. You feel almost that any second the atmosphere might be pierced and the darkness inherent in the songs unleashed into your own environment. The talents of these two artists is catapulted into the stratosphere with these albums, and while thirteen seems a significantly apt number with which to finish the project, it would be a great shame not to hear more of the same.
As I write this, one of the few sunny days we have seen this year is reaching its conclusion and the shadows of night are forming. Be in no doubt that, while manners have changed for our modern way of living, behind the eyes of strangers - and, more chillingly, even friends - there lurks a darkness to eclipse the darkest night.
