Grace For Drowning 2011
Often over shadowed in Wilson’s catalogue by the iconic likes of The Raven, his second solo album is actually stuffed full of resounding winners. All that gnarly jazz, prog and industrial noise he’d been quietly absorbing for years is stirred into the compelling, cohesive frameworks of Index, Rader II, Remainder The Black Dog and more. And while his latest solo record To The
Bone might have been said to be his most poppy venture, it’s on Grace For Drowning, in the exquisitely melodic heartbreak of Deform To Form A Star and Postcard, that we see the seeds of Wilson’s pop prowess really start to flourish.
