David Sylvian: Brilliant Trees/Alchemy/Gone To Earth/Secret Of The Beehive (Virgin)

Daryl Easlea, Record Collector, October 2003

IN 1989, VIRGIN released Weatherbox, one of the most coveted box sets ever. It underlined the first phase of David Sylvian's solo career; indeed, it would be another nine years before we would hear a whole album of songs from him. Remastered and delicately packaged, the five albums that were housed in that package are now available again.
