about wild opera
Wild Opera is the third studio album by no-man.
Released on 31 May 1996, the album was a far darker, more beat-driven and wilfully exploratory album than the preceding Flowermouth. No-Man’s taste for melancholy balladry and cinematic Art Rock was still in evidence, but this time it was joined by Industrial, Trip-Hop and odder Pop excursions than the band had attempted before.
