5 stars It's hard to explain to the uninitiatedwhat it is that makes Hammill fans so devoted to the man and his music but this album may go a long way towards an explanation.A genuine classic,not only of the Hammill catalogue(which is extensive) but a classic fullstop. This is Hammill's equivalent to Joni Mitchell's Blue an intensely personal album where Hammill allows the listener a window onto his soul.As is suggested by the title this is an album about the demise of a relationship and accuratly portrays the emotions of guilt,anger,despair and tragedy that we have all endured at some time or other,it would be pointless to go through a track by track analysis looking for weaknesses there simply aren't any.There many album's from Hammill's long,varied and illustrious career that demand anyone genuinely interested in music listen to,but if it's a first your looking for this would be a really great to start.An incredible album and a must for any follower of real music!
