Spirit of Eden would be in my top 10 albums - with Laughing Stock not far behind.

Wealth - written by Mark - was about his brothers’ death. It could equally apply to him now.

Create upon my flesh
Create approach upon my breath
Bring me salvation if I fear
Take my freedom

Create upon my breath
Create reflection on my flesh
The wealth of love
Bear me a witness to the years
Take my freedom

Create upon my flesh
Create a home within my head
Take my freedom for giving me a sacred love

Very sad news. What a musical journey he took us on in such a short space of time!
When something like this happens it’s like part of your youth has also gone and a reminder that so much time has gone by


Sad. His soloalbum is one of my most favorite albums ever.


I remember playing The Colour of Spring to my housemates in the eighties. They stopped stirring me about audio that day.
