STAFF COMMENTS

Barry says: One of the most legendary voices in modern classical and sountrackery (who could forget the 2001's 'Amélie'?) joins us with his most recent outing, a revisiting of some of his most unforgettable moments, and joined by some of the most important voices in modern music (John Grant, Stephen O'Malley of Sunn, Blonde Redhead etc.) a stunning collection, and yet more proof Tiersen stands as the figurehead he does today.
