Soft Black Stars is an album by Current 93. All of the music on the album was written and adapted by Michael Cashmore, David Tibet and Maja Elliott with the exception of "Judas as Black Moth", "A Gothic Love Song" and "Whilst The Night Rejoices Profound And Still" the music for which was written by Michael Cashmore. Almost all of the songs feature only David Tibet's lyrics accompanied by minimalistic piano music: with the exception of "Judas as Black Moth" which is solo piano and "Chewing on Shadows" consist of drones, piano, guitar and David Tibet's singing. The artwork was made by David Tibet. "Chewing on Shadows" was released in a different form on vinyl and was included on the album's CD reissue in 2005. In 2003, a live album was released called Some Soft Black Stars Seen Over London which contained live versions for seven of the albums songs.
The delicate and ethereal sounds make it a work almost unique, with a style hardly comparable with that of only seemingly similar albums by other artists (with the partial exception of Peter Hammill's And Close As This).
