Rumors on Blackfield IV had been going around since January 2012, when Aviv Geffen promised to release the album in May that year, but eventually released it more than a year later. I'm pretty sure it was caused by the uncertainty with Steven Wilson's further participation with the project, who had been the second most important figure in Blackfield since its inception. Even though he did not write a lot of the songs, it felt like he really improved the arrangement of the ones written by Aviv. I wouldn't say that this record has some poor songwriting, it's just of much lower quality than it was before, and Wilson's influence can no longer be heard; the album was all written and produced by Geffen, who also recorded a bigger portion of instruments and vocals this time, although I don't enjoy his singing.

Rating: 6 This sounds like Steven Wilson's garbage can. Unfinished songs, simple melodies, different styles between them. That being said, this album proves that even his worst ideas can be put together in a good, enjoyable record.

Wilson hasn't written much for Blackfield since their second album, he's more into the production.

  Very underwhelming through the first listen. I'm inclined to spin it a few more times to really give it a fair chance, though. But so far, quite boring.
