4 stars Current 93's most artistically substantial mid-2000s release finds David Tibet and crew charting a course back through the neofolk territory of their peak years, offering an apocalyptic narrative with the recurring image of the titular black ships sailing in and out from it. A wide range of guest musicians appear on here from across Tibet's career, from Marc Almond (who like Tibet was a contributor to early Psychic TV releases) to Anohni of Anthony and the Johnsons, an act that Tibet actually discovered originally. A little overlong and not quite of the stature of classics like All the Pretty Little Horses or Thunder Perfect Mind, but still another intriguing trip through David Tibet's deeply personal and idiosyncratic view of the apocalypse.
