TVD's Daily Wax | The Blue Nile "A Walk Across The Rooftops"

To be fair, this first Blue Nile release isn't a repost at all, but we still receive plenty of requests for its posting - so consider your voices heard.

"A Walk Across The Rooftops is one of the most exquisitely orchestrated pop albums ever made, a timeless, finely detailed arrangement of funky bass, delicate strings and synth flourishes, not least on the title track. "Tinseltown In The Rain's dark-hued musical watercolours and flashes of light and shade paint a vivid picture of the city at night--coupled with Paul Buchanan's wistfully romantic lyrics, this album captures with almost cinematic resonance late evening walks along deserted, neon-lit puddled streets turning over thoughts in your mind of a loved one. Broody, bittersweet and wonderful."

How true, huh?
