Wild Opera (1996)

No-Man

Experimental Rock

Wild Opera

Rating 6/10

"Wild Opera" is the first album by British band No-Man I have listened to, and I guess it isn't the best their album. Music represented here is good and original enough, but at the same time it's very different from other Steven Wilson's works I've listened to earlier. Perhaps, exactly this difference has affected my perception of the album with slightly unfavourable feeling, because No-Man is obviously far from the row of Porcupine Tree / Blackfield / Opeth / OSI (I familiarized myself with Steven's projects and works exactly in this sequence). "Wild Opera" is very different from anything above by both of style and performance manner. Vocalist of this project is Tim Bowness, whose voice is pretty good. As for music itself, it represents a quite original experimental rock, which consists of some jazz and some electronic influences besides of its rock nature. I certainly like experiments, but in this specific case, I just didn't expect such a turn. I'll try to listen to other albums by No-Man, and maybe I'll change my mind in the future.
