WhiIe I had a strong impression of "dust" and "fog" in "The Absence Of Blight" (his previous album), these dust and fog have been replaced by something more crystalline and clean in "The Night Will Last Forever". In the "The Absence of Blight", the tracks sounded as if they were created with some old and rusty machines and some sinister (yet charming and graceful) samples from old black & white movies, everything teaming up with the clicks and reduced sounds from a PC. In "The Night Will Last Forever", the stoytelling and "reduced" design are still there, but the rest has been replaced by something a bit more sparkling. The rusty iron has been traded for a lush silver. In "The Night Will Last Forever", paradoxically, I can feel more hints of light shining on the snow. Something brighter. It sounds like the sunny mornings of winter. The weather is still cold but the sun starts illuminating your path for the upcoming spring.

Also, Lawrence's art for storytelling is still very strong in this album. It's a romantic piece, a timeless romantic piece. I particularly hail the ambiant tracks in this creation. They are absolutely magnificent. The best ambiant excursions Lawrence has ever delivered. It sounds so fragile, so pure, so delicate and sensitive.

A precious and essential gem.

Lawrence's unique brand of emotional, melodic techno moves to a major label for THE NIGHT WILL LAST FOREVER, though it in no way changes his style. The title track has an underlying darkness to it that's moderated by the higher ringing tones and angular melodies, while "Swap" sweeps in on a slightly more digital, upbeat note. The brief, "A Quiet Day," is a blissful interlude ("Falling Down A Dam Of Mashed Potatoes" lets the ambiance linger a touch longer), and "The Lawn" returns to the sharper grooves. The appropriately named "Happy Sometimes" adds some warmth to its tune... sometimes. "Attracted By Fire" opts for a more electro feel, while "Cab Driver" goes more abstract with its melody. The grand "Along The Wire" builds itself around a moody progression, filling out the sound with numerous harmonic lines, and "Leave Me Tomorrow" trucks in the emotion on a few piano chords and some light electronic accompaniment. A real solid album.

There's a sublime simplicity to this LP that sometimes takes the breath away. I've heard Peter Kersten's music often classed as "Goth-House" which is a laughable tag, but it does have a certain accuracy, as this is full of an autumnal melancholia that seeps in through the wonderful spaces afforded by his detailed programming.
