2 stars Sometimes you take punt ....

I had very little idea what to expect with this album. Well the trajectory 1 opened my mind in the sense that I didn't think it was possible to stretch a variation on the theme tune to Kitt the car from Knight Rider for a whole three and a half minutes. Trajectory 2 was different. Lots of speedy violin runs: tres impressive. A but by the time you get to Trajectory 3 you realize these guys must be jamming with gusto to a really full on Hoff episode: too much bad 80s TV theme music for me (no matter how superbly faffed over).

The vocals remind me of a sort of doped out David Sylvian. Is David a Hasselhoff fan?

The flutes of Splinters meld into the flute and synth of Birds like some sort of bad Dr Who freaked out Cyberman background music.

There's Day, Here's Night has a delicacy that is really quite sublime. It's great when you find a gem like this. Simply Beautiful (with a capital B).

The Two is a weird mix between flutes and more sci-fi background sounds.

The Yesterday Night has a very basic riff and goes a bit Munsters. Hmmmm has an almost Split Enz (True Colours) feel about it. No idea what the lyrics mean.

My well fave track is the stonkingly groovy Sirius: odd anf funky, weird and wonderful, is that a (southern states slide in there ?). This track is mediocre at low volumes but is best played at 11. It does everything but make you a cup of tea: excellent.

The Hills are breaking... and so is my will to live thankfully there's less than tow minutes of this. Now I don't understand the lyrics so this could well be filled with the deepest revelations affecting humanity in 2000 years but unfortunately it's all lost on me (a but for the want of a Babel fish).

Trajectory Z is experimental post rock: odd but pleasing and entrancing in a weird sort of way.

The album ends with a couple of nice tracks. I am definitely getting soft in my old age. The Day has Come & The Curtain: pleasant but pretty bland.

it's OK but not great. I couldn't really recommend this one.
