Nine Lines of Crime The growth of an incredible artist is fully evident. Sprinkle in the influence of Bowie from the Sons of the Silent Age tribute time and you have something truly magical here. Impressed doesn't fully say what I am feeling at hearing this. Well done! Favorite track: Looking For A Coda.

Elijah Damien Davis Chris gifted the world on his recent birthday with, not only one of the very best albums of the year, but also one of his greatest masterpieces yet! I especially love the Neofolk elements within, especially present on Silk Balune. Favorite track: Silk Balune.

THE HEART HAS TO ACHE BEFORE IT LEARNS TO BEAT WHEN WE ARE HALF COLLAPSED WE RECOGNIZE THE HEAT AND IT’S A TRICKLE DOWN FROM TERRACES TO TERMINUS THEN THE LIGHT DISPATCHES PROMISE UNLIKELY AND UNKIND SO PRECIOUS IN IT’S DARKEST OF CONCEITS THE HEART HAS TO ACHE BEFORE IT LEARNS TO BEAT…. WHEN YOU BRACE YOURSELF TO JUMP YOU’LL BE INTERRUPTED SLOW MOTION SINKS LIKE STONE IN THE SILT OF SORROW YOU’RE THE FIRST TO KILL SURVIVAL SKILLS MALNOURISHED, RANK AND HOPELESS YOU’RE THE FIRST TO PAINT THE RAPTURE AS DEFEAT, THE HEART HAS TO ACHE BEFORE IT LEARNS TO BEAT….

Looking For A Coda BEFORE YOU EVEN START YOU LOOK FOR A CODA SOMETHING TO STARE DOWN THE STRENGTH YOU IMPLIED THE BIRTH YOU DENIED THE WORDS YOU WROTE ON THE AIR AS A LURE BUT THROUGH THE MIST THEY’RE OBSCURED IT’S NOT ENOUGH OF A CODA IT’S NOT ENOUGH OF A CODA IT HAS TO BE MORE OF A LIFELINE TO RUSTED SHORES FLEETING CLIFFS THEY IMPLORE DRAGGING SHAME ACROSS RAINCLOUDS HURRY BACK TO YOUR BURDEN FLEETING CLIFFS LIKE THEY’RE CURTAINS BEFORE YOU EVEN START
