Album Review

Trying to follow up a successful collaboration had to be just about as tricky as aligning the individual schedules of each of the participants for that sequel — in fact, it took five years to get everyone back together again. Again, the project draws more on Ka-Spel's strengths and background than on Key's, turning in a mildly psychedelic electronic soundscape, this time with organic elements like acoustic and electric guitar scattered prominently throughout. It's a nice effect and it certainly brings broader range to the Tear Garden sound, but at the same time it edges the band closer towards a funked-up electro Pink Floyd. How you react to this fact is up to you.

Customer Reviews

On of my favorite Tear Garden records ever!

I can remember when I first heard this album, I was used to a little bit more abstract structure to The Tear Garden and was VERY impressed lyrically and musically with this adventure into the dripping psychedelic wandering of Edward KaSpell and ceVin Key. Has more of a feel of a strung out british rock band than an electronic album, but, not a dissapointment at all. If you want a good first listen to dip your toes into this record, try The Running Man. The Running Man is more of a sound that you would find on To Be An Angel Blind. . but, it still frames this terrific album by The Tear Garden.

My Last time flying

This was my intro to The Pink Dots and K-Spell's work. One of the best. Isis Veiled is just killer!


This is a great album. If you like Psychadelic music at all, you should own it. Ka-spel at his absolute best. It puts most Krautrock, and more mainstream psychedelic like Pink floyd and Radiohead to shame. Hyperform and Running Man are amazing psych rock tracks with nice loops, the last half of the album is more low key, strung out, haunting and melodic. This album is a trip. Some hugely experimental moments mixed with catchy beats, great melodies, totally pushing the envelope and utterly accessible at the same time.

Years Active: '80s, '90s, '00s

While sustaining a stance in the Canadian industrial trio Skinny Puppy, cEvin Key also maintained several side projects such as Tear Garden and Hilt. Not as chaotic as Skinny Puppy, Key's ambient side work began in the mid-'80s when he and Legendary Pink Dots' Edward Ka-Spel teamed up to form Tear Garden. Tired Eyes Slowly Burning (1987) marked the band's debut and sharply defined Key's talented programming skills to move him out from behind the blazing showcase of Skinny Puppy frontman Nivek Ogre....
