Secrets of the Beehive is the fourth solo album by British singer-songwriter David Sylvian and was released in 1987. Produced by Steve Nye and David Sylvian, the album features Ryuichi Sakamoto, David Torn, Mark Isham and Steve Jansen among others. The album peaked at n. 7 in the UK album chart. All tracks written by David Sylvian, except as noted

Secrets of the Beehive" is probably one of David Sylvian�s least experimental albums, so I don�t listen to the album to be challenged or to experience progressive details, which is sometimes the case with his other releases. The production is warm and pleasant. A real treat to my ears and it suits the music perfectly.

Secrets scraped into the UK top 40 at – where it stayed for one week. It marked the end of Sylvian’s pop career. He would wait 12 years to release another solo album. But next up was a world tour and one of this writer’s most memorable gigs of the 1980s – more on that soon. Thanks for this one Matt – my wife was a huge fan of Japan and David S has been on my ‘to-do’ list for years. You may actually have persuaded me to do something about it. LikeLiked by 1 person.

Exclusive discount for Prime members. Sample this album Artist (Sample). That changed dramatically on Secrets, an album hardly without a misstep. It is for the most parts rather slow and soothing, simple instrumentation, often in an experimental style with jazz elements on some of the tracks. Standout tracks are hard to define, they have changed in my opinion through the years.
