Awesome Music: Current 93
  • Live shows tend to be a source of this:
    • The live version of "They Return To Their Earth" from As The World Disappears and the expanded version of Thunder-Perfect Mind. The applause at the end was well-warranted.
    • "Good Morning, Great Moloch," as it appeared on Halo.
  • "Not Because The Fox Barks", the climax to "Aleph At Hallucinatory Mountain". A masterful build gives way to searing, hard driving rock music with loads of noise, maintaining its intensity to the end.
  • From Black Ships Ate The Sky:
    • Antony proves himself to be the album's Ensemble Darkhorse—in both of his moments alone, he is an expert Self-Backing Vocalist, and "The Beautiful Dancing Dust" gives us a brief example of his evocative piano work.
    • Shirley Collins is nothing to sneeze at herself. Her plainly sung, yet stately rewrite of "Idumaea" succinctly summarizes the album's themes without stating them outright.
  • "Tamlin" off the eponymous EP. It builds slowly and subtly to an utterly intense climax—with the only major change in the music being a steady drone in the background.
  • The title track of "Sleep Has His House" is one of the most beautiful, heavenly pieces of music that David Tibet and co. have ever recorded, despite only having two things: a organ and a voice. It also manages to be an epic Tear Jerker all the way through.
