David Sylvians debut studio album Brilliant Trees 1984 was a good album that sounded a lot like the last couple of Japan albums but with a world music influence. The music on Brilliant Trees was centered around Davids warm and deeply emotional vocal style. The first thing you notice when listening to Alchemy - An Index of Possibilities is the total lack of vocals with the exception of a few samples and background chants. David Sylvians warm and beautiful vocals does not appear at any time during the 48:41 minutes the album lasts. So this is an almost totally instrumental album. The music is generally very ambient and repetitive. track 1: Produced by David Sylvian and Nigel Walker Engineered by Nigel Walker, Recorded in London, 1985. track 2: Produced by David Sylvian Engineered by Seigen Ono, Recorded in Tokyo, 1984. track 3: Produced by David Sylvian Engineered by Seigen Ono, Nigel Walker and Steve Nye Mixed by David Sylvian, Nigel Walker and Steve Nye Recorded Tokyo and London, 1984 and 1985.

Brilliant Trees 1984. Alchemy - An Index of Possibilities 1985. Gone to Earth 1986. Alternative cover. David Sylvians first four solo albums, newly reissued on vinyl, exude an intense but ambiguous loneliness. I wrestle with an outlook on life that shifts between darkness and shadowy light, he sings during his most forthright song, Orpheus. Throughout these records, he does battle-with his outlook, with his past, with his expectations. His next two releases-the entirely instrumental Alchemy: An Index of Possibilities and the double album Gone to Earth-are more transitional. The former is a strange hodgepodge of collaborations and soundtrack material
