Blackfield V sees the duo of Steven Wilson and Aviv Geffen return to full collaborative mode.
Written and recorded over a period of 18 months in both Israel and England, the album contains 13 linked songs that form a flowing 45 minute ocean themed song cycle.
The duo handle vocals, guitars, and keyboards, alongside guests Tomer Z on drums, Eran Mitelman on keyboards, and the London Session Orchestra.
Legendary producer / engineer Alan Parsons works on three of the album's key tracks.

This process of manufacture makes them, inevitably, more susceptible to crackles, pops & occasional warping.
But they do look fab!
