4 stars After the relative disappointment of the previous album, this was much better work. The songs are all very atmospheric, and showcase all band members. The album has an "otherwordly" feel to it, and a "grittiness" that the previous albums lacked (there is no equivalent to "Gypsy", in any of the earlier works).

I have a personal preference for "Out and In", since it introduced me to the min7sus4 chord!

Arguably, the multiple tracking on this album count against it-there were five in the group, rather than ten, or twelve.

However, the individual songs within this album give it four stars, rather than three. The songs are mostly worthwhile-although why were Justin's little bits thrown in?

Four stars.
