The story of a free-spirited Shropshire lass, loved by a squire and minister, and the choices she must make. queen in a regalia of flowers, eating the piece of bread and honey that made her dinner, and covering her face with lily pollen. Now, there were no flowers in the garden; only the yew-tree by the gate that hung her waxen blossom along the undersides of the branches.

When Hazel was fourteen she died, leaving her treasure-an old, dirty, partially illegible manuscript-book of spells and charms and other gipsy lore-to her daughter. Her one request was that she might be buried in the Callow under the yellow larch needles, and not in a churchyard. Abel Woodus did as she asked, and was regarded askance by most of the community for not burying her in Chrissen-ground.

Small feckless clouds were hurried across the vast untroubled sky—shepherdless, futile, imponderable—and were torn to fragments on the fangs of the mountains, so ending their ephemeral adventures with nothing of their fugitive existence left but a few tears.

One of THE best albums I've ever heard. A sonic float down an autumnal creek. Get it on vinyl and relax in the fall sun.

Hey hey...

I only came across this guy becuase he was on a chilled out sessions CD collection of mine. One day I was listening to it, and this song called 'Ghosts' by Japan came on. Then half a CD later, a song called 'I Surrender' pounded through the lounge room. Since then, I have searched for David Sylvian's stuff, and found 'Gone to Earth' here.

This album is a good example of what 'easy listening' should be. However, it carries enough maturity to be considered among the more introverted artists that are revered for their thought provoking lyrics and melodies. I find this album to be great for working out in the gym, or contemplating life at 3:00am. Its flow allows you to remain 'in the zone' for its enitrety, and the trade mark sound of Sylvian's voice reminds you (as does Cohen's) that it's not all about production and perfection; the message you're putting out there speaks volumes.

I eagerly await my other Sylvian purchases. I have brought several others, but haven't listened to them at length yet. They will become the next workout CD's, though. It's nice to feel relaxed and challenged mentally at the same time.

Written in 1800's vocabulary , got a lot of what you see is what you write in the story so nature is the prominent force in the writing , nature always sells and is a that is the reason it's such a successful book in my eyes

A great double album. The songs are leisurely paced, something quite unusual in this genre. Those who are used to frenetic juveniles jumping up and down with thrashing guitars need not bother. Sylvian is more than a crafstman: he is a true artist who takes you by the hand and leads you through his music, and creates a sonic world of his own design.

The music is powerful, yet introspective.

The music is hard to describe, but it could be truthfully said that Sylvian's singing style vaguely resembles that of fellow Englishman, the late Nick Drake. It's sometimes breathy or semi-whispered, but it's also a deeper, more dynamic, more potent voice than Drake's.

It would not be unfair to say that if Drake were still alive he might very well be doing something very similar to what Sylvian is doing here.

A must.

Another amazing collaboration between Sylvian and Fripp. Great artists in their own right this album is indeed the sum of its parts.

This is one of a handfull of albums that changed my life and my perception of music. I knew music like this had to exist before I found this and this was like a sonic Holy Grail. I can't effectively describe this subtle sonic masterpiece in words exept to say: BUY IT NOW!

Sent this copy to a friend; he loved it!
I've been listening to this for about 20 years now, and still listen on a regular basis. Deeply satisfying music. Yes, some will find it a bit moody, but along with "Secrets of the Beehive" and "Brilliant Trees," this strikes me as the best David Sylvian, with the usual combination of interesting and insightful lyrics and a richly expressive, highly personal style.

The remastered versions of this are slightly better in terms of sound quality--just a bit more presence and detail. But they should have left the songs in their original order on the CD and followed them with the bonus tracks--rather than inserting some of them into the original order.
