erudite gaelic musician’s 7th studio album sees him cementing the sound of its darker sister.

‘sky line’ is the follow up to ‘dust lane’ & while musically this new collection of songs may sound lighter & happier, the subject matter of moving on in life & the deep introspection after dealing with loss gives it a greater darkness. as always the music stems from tiersen, whose long periods of recording alone are broken in spells with input from a cast of musicians. an array of vintage synths add billowing, analogue textures, electric guitars & bass bring layers of fuzz & distortion & songs slip from their moorings to take off on new & unexpected currents. he has clearly made an effort to play with contrasts in timbre & you hear voices join together in chorus, arcing violins & crashing drums build towards mighty fanfares , but then, clouds part, squall recedes to silence & mournful piano & strings guide you home.  “life-affirming” 4/5 - mojo
