Secrets of the Beehive" is probably one of David Sylvian�s least experimental albums, so I don�t listen to the album to be challenged or to experience progressive details, which is sometimes the case with his other releases. The production is warm and pleasant. A real treat to my ears and it suits the music perfectly.

Secrets of the Beehive - Студийный альбом от David Sylvian. В альбом вошло 12 треков. Продолжительность альбома: 48:50. David Sylvian-The Boy With The Gun (1987) HD. Next. That changed dramatically on Secrets, an album hardly without a misstep. It is for the most parts rather slow and soothing, simple instrumentation, often in an experimental style with jazz elements on some of the tracks. Standout tracks are hard to define, they have changed in my opinion through the years.
