4 stars Here we go! Hammill's first solo album and its nothing like the stuff from VdGG this is wierd pop tunes most of em some longer balladish songs like "Child" but most of it is pop but pop with a sweet Hammill twist and so ofcourse its very good, Hammill playing the beatles you culd say. You can almost tell what the song is gona be like by looking at the title like "Happy" and "Sunshine". Anyway most of the VdGG guyz + many other guest plays on this one but the songs are short so they dont get many shanses to shine still as always from hammill the lyrics and song writing are excellent. Its an album that makes you or alteast me happy, its a great starting album if you never heard any albums by Hammill before no doubt the most accesible stuff he ever did but then again thise are some of the first songs he ever wrote so not very strange theres no 20min epics. I was thinking about giving it a 4 or a 3 i think i go with a 3 its good very good but not essential realy in a prog collection, if you never heard any hammill before start here but keep in mind that the albums that comes after this one are much more extreme.
