In my top 10 albums of all-time. Loved this from the first time I heard it, in my late teens

Out of three TMC albums, this one was my favorite. I think 4AD, in general, does solid reissues, and this album is no exception. Glad I picked it up for old time's sake.

This double album is a huge disappointment. I read on the net that it’s a «goth classic etc». Being on 4 AD and this is a joint project, you’d exept more Cocteau twins/dead can dance collaboration here, well it’s not. It’s like a walk in the desert.

After all these years, I still can't believe how beautiful this album is.

F&S is a quintessential acquisition for anyone who is interested in the aesthetic side of 80s music.

(Should the album receive a a reissue, they should make it a proper gatefold and lose the white frame from the cover, like they did on CDs)

A stunningly inventive ensemble project delving into ethereal atmospherics, neo-classical and electronic coloring supported by members of Dead Can Dance, Colourbox, The Wolfgang Press, Wire, et al. This is a total package release from cover art to packaging while retaining a sublime elegance that would appeal to those drawn to the visionary Ivo-Watts-Russell's extraordinary 4AD label. Brilliant renditions of various 60s covers that impart a indelible beauty in the musicality as well as the application of superb studio as an instrument efforts on many participants throughout this album. Timeless and beguiling. This CD represents a time in modern rock that brought so many disparate elements together in this genuine collaborative success.

Discovered by association with the Cocteau Twins and Dead Can Dance, I picked up the LP of Filigree & Shadow because of familiar names Raymonde, Ulrich, Curtis. The 2LP set was a work of art with 23 Envelope's photography adorning every single sleeve face. I have this CD now, and though the music is the same I feel the LP format benefited the listening experience.

Filigree & Shadow is one powerful album, mainly a 25 tracks album that sounds like one and only song moving through different landscapes of feelings. This impressive intrications of ambient soundscapes with the deep vocals of Alison Limerick and the distant vocals of Dominic Appleton renders a tremendous sensation throughout the album. Sometimes dark, sometimes full of hope, Filigree & Shadow is a sombre melancholic journey into the mind of an ethereal heart.
