There seems to be a little more going on than simply David's warbling over My First Casio. And I'm sure I've mentioned it somewhere else before, I used to say that he could sing the phone book and I'd be all in but sadly, that is no longer the case.
Maybe one day those two albums will click, I certainly given them How Little We Need To Be Happy - David Sylvian - Blemish (Vinyl chance every so often, so far to no avail.

But the rewards are deeeeeeep and I really admire the use of How Little We Need To Be Happy - David Sylvian - Blemish (Vinyl and texture the album, and how they work with each other. Just amazing. Location: Perth Western Australia. A word of advice to newbies of DS's early solo albums: on cd try for original pressings as I bought "Trees" and "Earth" remastered and they were awful loud. Probably preaching to the choir but as is pretty much the case with most remastering shenanigans the original cd's are better sonically.

For me, it isn't the music necessarily or lack thereof that is lacking, but his singing, which just sounds like Eeyore. That said, I'm tempted to give it another shot after 14 years.
