Marc Almond's tenth studio album, originally released in March 1999. Re-configured as a 49 track expanded edition. Featuring a collaboration with Siouxsie Sioux on the track 'Threat Of Love' and Kelli Ali on the glacially ethereal 'Almost Diamonds'. Ali was the lead singer of British trip-hop band Sneaker Pimps. Includes a remix of 'My Love' by Dave Ball, Marc Almond's erstwhile partner in celebrated synth-pop duo Soft Cell. This new deluxe expanded edition is a comprehensive celebration of this singularly moody and magnificent Marc Almond album, the first big solo album released without any major label involvement. To quote Keith Phipps of AV Club, Marc effortlessly establishes himself herein as, "a smoky chanteuse of the synth age" offering "a private world of romantic martyrhood set to electronic beats". The curation of this expanded edition offers a multi-faceted insight into this unique album through the inclusion of alternative, demo and live versions of both album tracks and other contemporaneous songs. The three discs combined offer over three and a half hours of music. Disc One features the original album with three remixes, one of each of the singles released from it. Disc Two majors on bonus period studio recordings and demos. Disc Three offers live versions of many of the album tracks as well as the three dance remixes of the album's debut single 'Black Kiss'. The discs come with a 28-page colour lyrics booklet insert with photographs.

However, when I first heard this I was blown away. From the opening late-night slumber of Night and Dark I was taken off to feel moods very little music makes me feel now as I get older.
'Open all night' and 'Heart in Velvet' are stand-out tracks, where Marc blends the best of all his skills. The lyric is poetic, the sound is enchanting, his voice is superb and the mood is pure dream.
There are a few over-dramatically camp moments here too though. It's hard not to laugh when he sings 'My love/ smokes like Betty Davis/ In short, vicious drags', but the mood of the song is such a 'I-love-the-the-bad-guy-because-he's-bad' cliche that I suspect Marc had his tongue firmly in cheek when he wrote it. Maybe here he's actually sending up what a Marc Almond song is supposed to be. It's certainly true that no-one else could have written it. However, that said, the sound of the track is on par with the rest of the album.
Add to that the uplifting 'I will survive' lyric of 'Tradgedy', which must be the most positive track on the album to the sultry 'Bad People Kiss', 'Sleepwalker' and 'Midnight Soul' and you have an album deviod of mediocrity.
The two bedroom tracks 'Scarlett' and 'Shrine' are excellent but album fillers as they are the sort of track Marc can write in his sleep. 'Black Kiss' is a little above this, but serves the same purpose.
The low point, in my view is the duet with Siouxsie on 'Threat of Love'. Their voices don't complement each other well and the whole track seems to feel wrong and out of place.
The highlight is by far 'Almost Diamonds' with a lyric and sound that is sensual, mesmerizing and emotional and a duet of vocals superbly matched. After constant listening to this album, this is one track I still haven't tired of. The closest example of sounds and words defining beauty I have ever found.
All in all though, this album should be listened to straight through. It's not a hits album, and I don't feel there are any singles on it as such. It's best listened to by candlelight in the bath...or alone when you want your mind to run free.
This is, indeed, the album Marc was born to make. It will be the one most often held up as his classic and in my view, his best work ever.
A perfect record.
