The Philadelphia City Paper: “Like Dead Can Dance, black tape for a blue girl dramatically flirts with symphonic decay.”
BlackTape’s achingly beautiful 1996 neo-classical, ethereal, darkwave classic remastered in it’s 3rd vinyl edition. Long deep tones overlayed by intense vocals and rich cello and violin arrangements. The results are deeply mesmerizing and melancholy passages. The 77-minute album is Black tape’s masterpiece: exquisite and stunning. Wrapped up in the emotions of betrayal and salvation, searching for the deeper fragments of a truer reality — somewhere between sadness and hope — Sam’s words and harmonies weave a soft, opaque veil over a world where feeling is foremost, emotions on the surface, the heart laid bare.
musictap.net: “Black Tape for a Blue Girl is best described as the poets of the broken spirit, musically and lyrically exploring the heart of the human soul in all of its unavoidable sadness. That may sound like depressing stuff but it is far from it. BlackTape explores these dark corners of deception, betrayal, love, hope, and rebirth perhaps more adroitly than any other band. The revisitation of Black Tape for a Blue Girl’s greatest achievement is a great cause for celebration. This classic album is priceless.”
huh magazine:“The ethereal, romantic sounds of Remnants is their richest work so far: tapestries of melancholic, often neo-classical music manifest themselves amidst waves of Rosenthal’s lush keyboards, haunting strings and the vocals of Oscar & Lucian.”
2LP - 140 gram swirled burgundy color vinyl. 12” 8-page booklet (includes unreleasd candid photographs from the Remnants-era). Remastered-for-vinyl in Europe from original DAT mixes.
