Prog Reviewer
4 stars Personally I see no evil in second COMUS effort. I mean it is not that bad as many reviewers tend to see it. Their debut was dark, their second one is light. That one was epic, this one is more song-oriented (with some average and forgettable tracks especially from the middle of the album). But the main COMUS powers are presented – strong songwriting and professional musicianship, eerie atmosphere and pastoral nature. Special mention must get the title track – it reminds me of these 6/8 romantic bluesy songs David Lynch likes to use in his nightmarish movies. And it’s simply marvelous. Rough lengthy “Get yourself a Man”, dreamy “Touch Down” and scary “Waves and Caves” sound as if they were “First Utterance” outtakes! After all, it’s a very good and solid album, though not as much challenging as their first one. Recommended without hesitation!
