4 stars Dreamy Soundscape...just beautiful. It is my favorite No-Man album and if you haven't heard it yet you need to check out this album. Colin Edwin plays the bass and Ohh my favorite Theo is featured a lot in this album. Great composition by Mr. Steven Wilson and as always the Angelic voice of Tim is great as usual. This is the best album for bed time as it'll soothe, mystify and capture you in its sound and you'll feel as if you don't live in this world anymore. The mood of the album is somewhat sad but its beautiful . I love the sax playing by Mr. Theo on this album it seems like it's a a ''jazz rock atmospheric space rock prog album''.. Lyrically the album is very touching with songs like Returning Jesus and Outside The Machine (great backing vocals by Steven Wilson) . Carolina Skeletons was released as a singer quit prior to the release of the album. This is a great track like a lullaby. The Centerpiece of the album is Lighthouse which is a 8 mins classic. The albums closes with the heartfelt All that You Are. This album doesn't really have weak moments. For me the highlights are No Defence, Carolina Skeletons, Returning Jesus,(Tim cries in pain "I don't want to stay a million miles away") Outside the machine, these are my favorite No-Man tracks ever.
