Format: Audio CD
The centerpiece of "The Inmost Light" trilogy (bookended by the sublimely experimental EPs "Where the Long Shadows Fall" and "The Starres Are Marching Sadly Home"), "All the Pretty Little Horses" represents a culmination of Current 93's folk period--as though everything David Tibet had done since the "Happy Birthday" single had been leading up to this.
It's an album of great majesty and depth, achingly beautiful and profoundly eerie at the same time. The sampled choirs, Nick Cave's deadpan yet heartfelt vocal cameo, and, of course, Tibet's apocalyptic lyrics and unique voice all conspire to make this an essential disc to own.

Really, everyone should own this... Sept. 11 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
My favorite by Current 93 (or anyone else for that matter), one hell of a piece of work. Profound and inspiring. Great production, great packaging. A little bit of everything stylistically, but it all flows together quite well. Quite a bit of care went into the production of this. Hard to take pop music too seriously after hearing it, everything else seems pretty shallow by comparison... Tibet (and all involved) ought to be very proud of this effort-it's an impressive document that will stand the test of time...

Real Track List March 28 2005
By Luis Miguel Arbelaez - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
You guys at amazon made a mistake using the first verses of the main track as the tracklist of this cd.

Here it goes the correct track order:

1 The Long Shadow Falls

2 All The Pretty Little Horsies

3 Calling For Vanished Faces I

4 The Inmost Night

5 The Carnival Is Dead And Gone

6 The Blood Bells Chime

7 Calling For Vanished Faces II

8 The Frolic

9 The Inmost Light

10 Twilight, Twilight, Nihil, Nihil

11 The Inmost Light Itself

12 All The Pretty Little Horses

13 Patripassian

I like this "Apocalyptic Folk" cd better than the previous no-sense noise experiences of Dave Tibet. Pretty nice contribution of Nick Cave!!!

Great album Aug. 15 2002
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
One of Current 93's best albums, this CD mixes beautiful folk, twisted psychedlia, and great production. If you aren't familiar with Current 93, this is probably the best album to start with in that it's accessible and sometimes achingly beautiful.
The album as a whole derives loosely from the folk song "All the Pretty Little Horses," and develops into a sprawling fairy-tale like soundscape (think William Blake) with eschatological tendencies. Unlike much of Current 93's earlier work, the religious elements here aren't simply taken for granted. The album, through the motif of darkness and death, suggests a universe abandoned by the gods yet mired in the metaphysics of loss.
"The Bloodbells Chime," dedicated to the painter Louis Wain is thought by many Current 93 fans to be the group's most beautiful song. Also, Nick Cave contributes wonderfully to the title track and a spoken-word piece at the end.

Beautiful May 7 2005
By Philippe Landry - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
David Tibet/Michael allowed a perfect mix of folk instrumentation and minimal electronic trickery on All The Pretty Little Horses. Guitars, violas, pianos and reed-based instruments swirl gorgeously amongst tiny pools of treated sounds. The contrast of death and child-like innocense is a sublte reminder to be thankful for life. My absolute favourite track has to be "The Blood Bells Chime"; the melody is so transcendant. This is the perfect intro to C93's folk conversion.
