3 stars Bought this one shortly after obtaining THE SILENT CORNER... as I loved that one so much (see my review) Whilst this is not a bad album by any means I was slighlty dissapointed. Have been debating giving this a 4 star, but reckon 3.5 is more fitting!

Some interesting tracks on the album. They certainly contain the dark side the is PH's trademark, however I find them a bit stark in places. Could not really recommend any stand-out tracks and they all seem to lack a bit of direction and focus. Those wanting the more experimental side of PH's career would however really enjoy this record. The final track for example has an incredibly weird time signature followed by an even weirder ambient section featuring pulsating synth sounds and distorted moans. It's things like this that do keep the LP interesting.

Looking at other reviews I'm sure a few may not agree with me - some indeed think this is the best thing that he has done. Either way, still worth investigating.
