The Legendary Pink Dots

Play It Again Sam Records

The follow-up to The Crushed Velvet Apocalypse (with the Four Days cassette as an interim work), The Maria Dimension builds on the vivid majesty of the earlier album, The Legendary Pink Dots having established themselves as a presence worldwide. Edward Ka-Spel’s visions of a serenely strange world retain the sense of ritual on songs like “Disturbance,” “A Space Between” and “The Grain Kings,” while Niels van Hoorn’s saxophone adds further queasy bite. They also achieved another notable subcultural hit-as-such with “Belladonna,” a haunting synth-led ballad.
