The album is preoccupied with mortality; during the recording sessions Tiersen lost his mother and a close friend. The recordings started out as simple song based tracks with Tiersen playing acoustic guitar, mandolin and bouzouki. New layers were added to the recordings creating a more complex sound. Then an array of vintage synthesisers and electric guitars were added to create further textures. In , Tiersen also contributed to the tribute album to cross-genre, experimental music group Coil The Dark Age of Love by This Immortal Coil, a one-off tribute formation, and to Li f e , the fourth solo studio album by hip-hop artist Sage Francis.
October saw the European release of his seventh studio album, Skyline. The nine-track album, a follow on from his Dust Lane , was once again recorded at Tiersen's home on the island of Ushant in the south-western end of the English Channel , with further parts recorded in Paris, San Francisco, Berlin, and Nashville.
It was about an hour of krautrock , electronic , and experimental music involving a dozen of synthesizers and analog keyboards with the first three pieces of the set list taken from Dust Lane and the remaining five from Skyline. Tiersen's music is influenced by the classical training he received when he was a child and by the American and British punk subculture , and by the music he used to listen to as a teenager.
His musical style is deceptively simple to recognize but difficult to catalogue. It varies greatly from one album to the next and with the passage of time. His melancholy music and compositional techniques combine elements of Classical and folk music with pop and rock. Tiersen started playing piano and violin at a young age. Tiersen only returned to his childhood instrument years later after searching for string sounds to sample. Tiersen plays all of these instruments both in the studio and in concert.
Tiersen's ability to compose music that can be easily used for film scores was evident from the beginning. All tracks from his debut album, La Valse des monstres , were conceived for stage adaptations and plays. Tiersen has always composed his music in solitude, starting from simple melodies to which he added subsequent layers. The album cover , which depicts a field and a sky with white clouds and four vertical black bars, was designed by graphic artist Frank Loriou, who also provided the photography and the design for the eight pages photo booklet of the CD edition.
Reception for Skyline was very positive. On the review website Metacritic , the album has a score of 76 out of , indicating "generally favorable reviews". Dan Lucas of UK based music webzine Drowned in Sound awarded the album eight stars on a rating scale from one to ten stars, and ended his review by saying that "Skyline is a wonderful album brought about by a sense of restlessness and curiosity: the same that saw Bowie head for Berlin, or Woody Allen to Europe in the decade just gone by.
Ben Weisz in his review for UK based music website MusicOMH found that "[t]he production of this album in so short a time is nothing short of miraculous, and listening to it is an experience to savour", and gave the album four stars out of five.
Ken Scrudato in his review of the album for Los Angeles-based magazine Filter stated that "its tracks are beautiful storms for restless times" and that "every song [is] like a journey through a forest of emotions".
