I'll start this with saying that I'm relatively new to Current 93, basically meaning I've been listening to them for less than a year and only have this, Soft Black Stars, Sleep..., and Black Ships. Furthermore folk per se isn't really my favorite genre though my tastes are extremely eclectic. I buy a lot of disks so have around 500 disks or so, and though being a Christian I typically hate most Christian music as its puerile poorly written drivel with little to no brains behind it. All this is to say that this is the most beautiful disk I own. Its beauty is not in the typical sense, as Tibet's vocals can be at times very jarring (as in the Miserere section from "Moonlight") but it is aching beautiful in its intensity, and purity and lyric beauty. It's a disk to meditate to, and to quietly think on the ways of God and our own limited understanding of His ways and really of the world as a whole. This is to be taken of course as a whole piece of music, still some pieces stand out. This World Makes Great Blood was an early stand out with its hypnotic chorus and sheer power. For lyric and spiritual beauty I find track XII: Dormition and Dominion hard to top in any way. From the historical references to St. Eustace and the stag to death being over come and the building ending of "Dominion - Father you rule" the power of this piece rarely fails to bring tears to my eyes, its simply gorgeous. So if you want one of the most achingly beautiful and meditatively profound pieces of music of the modern age this album is well worth getting, as are their other albums. Black Ships is of what I own their most intense and driving, but if you want a quite album to meditate and think and feel to, you will find no better album than Of Ruine Or Some Blazing Starre.
