This is a fabulous recording, plain and simple, because it is one of the few electronic albums that transcends the predictability of modern day electronic music. One reason for this is the excellent choices of cover versions and musical influences, many of which are rooted in the folk tradition- Van Morrison, Judy Collins and especially Tim Buckley. The result is a wonderfully exotic blend of textured and moody electronica that hold up from start to finish. Absolutely recommended.

After ordering 'Blood', the 3rd album from This Mortal Coil, I decided to pick up Filligree and Shadow, and I am very happy I did. This album combines gentle strings, throbbing guitars and gentle piano chords, along with mesmering synthesizers, creating a 76 minute epic 4AD masterpiece. I was shocked at how wonderful this CD is. Ivo Watts Russell takes a number of relatively unknown songs by other artists, and gives them a '4AD makeover'. (The Jeweller, Come Here My Love, My Father, Strength of Strings, Morning Glory, Firebrothers, I Must Have Been Blind, Alone, Drugs)
There are also a number of TMC originals, which connect the songs to each other quite well. Darker and Warmer than It'll End in Tears, but more unfocused than Blood.
If you like Cocteau Twins, Dead Can Dance, Pink Floyd, etc. Pick this album up. NOW.

This CD has not left my stereo for all that long lately... It serves as exquisite chill-out music, yet forces you to pay attention to it... All the tracks on this album are of stellar quality, but the ones that most readily leap to mind for me are "Tarantula," "Firebrothers," and a quite sinister cover of the David Byrne-written "Drugs." I can honestly say there's nothing on this that serves as filler, and that Ivo Watts-Russell and John Fryer picked an impressive array of collaborators, as well as gathering a unique eclectic selection of cover songs (Van Morrison and Judy Collins, for example). I must admit that this is the only This Mortal Coil CD I own... but that'll be remedied soon enough, to be sure.

I first heard this when I was in high school. Its melancholy demeanor, luscious melody and intriguing orchestration spoke well to me then. Over a decade after the first listen, this disc still remains compelling. The sequence of tracks that runs from "Thais (I)" to the end of the album is fantastically beautiful; if those tracks were an album unto themselves, it would be one of the most listened to albums I own. I still have just as much fun singing along with "I Must Have Been Blind," and I still adore the cover of David Byrne's "Drugs." And the ambient tracks (too numerous to mention) are superb.
I can't give it the five stars because, like the other TMC releases, it is inconsistent. Some songs haven't lasted as well and now they get on my nerves. Luckily, they seem to be crowded more towards the beginning of the disc.

Of the three TMC CD's, this is my least favorite. However that does not mean that I do not enjoy it. All three are very good.

This LP and its precursor (It'll End in Tears) are breathtaking and tear-jerking. Instrumentally perfect, Filigree weaves an abstract and romantic look at rejection, loneliness and enlightenment. If you have dropped too much LSD and cannot handle the telepathy any more, then this album is for you. Certain tracks require you to stretch your imagination, but reward greatly on doing so. Others are simple ballads with a sad lilt, and purportedly meaningful but safe lyrics for acid casualties. "Come here my love..." completely haunts me, and just that distantly-sung opening line makes my hairs stand on end. I simply adore this LP. Buy it!

For me at least, the woman pictured on the cover is staring forward aghast, saying to herself, "What the hell happened?" You (and I) can interpret this in two ways: (1) that this record is really a descent from its predecessor, It'll End in Tears, and (2) that the goodness of Filigree & Shadow itself actually falls off as one nears its end. It becomes overwrought, and at times I don't know if I'm hearing something from 4AD or an... impersonation of Culture Club. I'm also told that Blood is even more disappointing, so head for the origin with this series, folks.

I absolutely love this album. A friend made us a tape of this back in 1986 after he got it for xmas(on vinyl, no less). It's been one of our favorites since. And, more importantly, it introduced us to different kinds of music..different sounds and instruments, and ways of singing that have just taken us to other artists we love that we may never have known about if it were not for This Mortal Coil. I'm not going to rate it next to the other TMC works, which we own also, because they are all different and special.
