The third volume in the "Blue Velvet" series comes from another personal favorite, Nighttime In The Abyss, and as usual with NITA, the material here is both emotionally suffocating and exquisitely, painfully beautiful. Here is the ache, the yearn, the desire, and the violence, all blended together in two amazingly gorgeous, dense, and scathing pieces of sound sculpture. I gave Christopher "Mysteries Of Love" as well because I knew he could make it sing; his original track, "Fear And Loathing In Ben's," trades on the former track's beauty and ups the volume and tension considerably. It's like falling into a hole of unending despair and nostalgiah. Another staggering release from one of the underground's best!
