Album Montage of Blackfield II, the second studio album by Blackfield. It was recorded in both Tel Aviv and London, and was released in February 2007 in Europe and March 2007 in the US.
"End of the World" is a cover of an older song in Hebrew, performed by Geffen and Berry Sakharof. Hebrew versions of "1,000 People" and "Epidemic" were included in Geffen's album from 2006, "With the Time". A demo version of "Where Is My Love?" was released on the bonus disc of the limited edition of Blackfield's first album.
"Christenings" was originally written for Porcupine Tree's 2005 album Deadwing but was never released. Richard Barbieri and Gavin Harrison are both featured on this track.
This record re-unites Aviv and Steven in the follow up to 2004’s hugely acclaimed debut, which was hailed at the time as ‘hypnotically effective’ (Classic Rock, UK ****) and ‘another strike of genius from Steven Wilson’ (Eclipsed, Germany).
Blackfield II, recorded in Tel Aviv and London and produced and mixed by Steven Wilson, continues and expands on the band’s orchestrated melancholic rock sound, combining great hooks, sweeping strings, explosive guitars, and lush vocal harmonies.

Press quotes for Blackfield II
"... an album of mournful, one-paced rock, Geffen's infatuation with Radiohead very evident in the melancholy synth-string washes. Miss U is the standout, although the Genesis-esque End of the World comes close."
