5 stars Surely it belongs among the best solo efforts of PH. My personal favorites are Foolsmate, Chameleon.., this one, as close as this, out of water and especially fireships. The rest are still very good and original, but I do not listen them often. And also among the above named ones there are albums which are hard to approach and make them out. And TSC&TES is like that. It is quite similar too the Chameleon, yet different. It is very complex, like all hammills's album. From silent fluent chamber songs full of sad lyricism (wilhelmina, rubicon), through heavy and demanding pressing songs being acumulated with the electricity-like power, eg red shift (just as in a van der graaf generator, mean now the device), to the final explosion in The louse is not home which is very unique and extremely strong, it is nearly impossible to stand such an impact of emotional energy. And exactly the great vulcano of emotions is what make this and not only this PH's album very hard to perceive. But anyway try it.
