5 stars I would definitely place this album somewhere between 4 and 5 stars. At the time of writing, it enjoys only 3.23 overall, which I think does not do justice to it (hence, I decided to give 5 not 4). Like other Phideaux albums this one is really artistic. Lyrics are mostly meaningful and have certain poetry to them. The sound is melodic and pleasing, with the use of keyboards, other voices appearing alongside Xavier's sound quite harmonious in each song.

Some recognizable "folky" influences can be felt, as well as the psychedelic sounding. Still I would not go as far as saying that the album sounds "like something else...", the style and the sound are quite unique and definitely Phideaux's. As worthy as the rest of Phideaux albums. And if this is indeed an "album-in-a-day" (hence the name, which is the date), I would confess that I am truly impressed!

In any case, this is a production of significant quality (whether or not it appeals to one's tastes). If you liked other Phideaux albums, I am certain you'll like this one. And if you haven't heard Phideaux before, you won't loose anything by starting from this album. (Of course, if you didn't like the other albums, this one is probably not for you as well.)
