    I have ordered from the shop as I like to be able to support the band directly. As a bonus it’s way cheaper than the amazon.com (I’m in the US) pricing anyway.

    Can anyone answer a question about the last ‘track’? Is it actually a video, or just the music from the video installation?

    It’s just the music, and not the video.

    Review from today’s Independent:

    Commissioned as the soundtrack to the In Flanders Fields Museum commemorating the dead of the Great War, Ypres was designed by Tindersticks’ Stuart Staples and Dan McKinna as a series of interlocking orchestra loops running non-stop, their aspect shifting slightly as the visitor moves from room to room. Not that the mood could ever be other than deeply sad: the models are Gorecki’s ‘Symphony of Sorrowful Strings’, Barber’s ‘Adagio for Strings’, Feldman’s music for the Rothko Chapel, and, in the keening violins of ‘Ananas et poivre’ and ‘sunset glow’, Arvo Part. But it’s the 17-minute ‘Whispering Guns’ that sets the tone, with sombre strings swelling behind a tolling bell that brings to mind Gray’s ‘Elegy Written in a Country Courtyard’. 4 stars

    Yes. Hugely impressive. This is a masterpiece in ambient and I have something in my eye.

    Completely agree. This is a superb piece of work and all concerned should be very proud of it.

    Superb. I have not been to Ypres, but I imagine that these soundscapes capture the feeling perfectly. Atmospheric, compassionate, respectful and dignified.

    Hank.

    Lovely album, very different to other Sticks records.
