3 stars The second Edison's Children album is an extended meditation on/exploration of a musical theme from their first album. Musically the theme takes off from the stand-out track from that first album, A Million Miles Away, taking the central musical motif and extending and reshaping it in different ways. Lyrically, the theme is the haunting presence of the past in our lives, the personal past of loves lost and the spectral past of other lives long gone, but somehow both still present at the edges of our consciousness. Great music for the small hours of the night, though in the bright light of day I do wonder if the ideas herein can really sustain 80 minutes of music? On that basis, I would say this is a good album, though not essential.
