David Sylvian: Gone To Earth (Virgin VDL1)
Betty Page, Record Mirror, 6 September 1986
MR SYLVIAN has always been refreshingly transparent when it comes to influences. But no matter — he still produces gentle, reflective, delicate but painstakingly crafted records. You can trace a direct line from Gone To Earth right back to Tin Drum; this is really Japan in their more atmospheric moments — Ghosts part 94 — with added maturity.
