5 stars This is possibly my favourite non-Porcupine Tree Steven Wilson-related album.

Very slow. very atmospheric and very beautiful, the first part of the album consists of four pieces linked by textures, effects and clarinets (Talk Talk-esque), and comes across as a more emotional, vocal-led, version of Bass Communion.

The second part of the album comprises three more conventional, but equally beautiful, acoustic guitar- driven singer-songwriter pieces (the long, slightly Genesis-y, coda to 'Photographs In Black And White' is breathtaking).

Lyrically intimate and almost uniformly sedate, this is undoubtedly the least dynamic album in the band's repertoire, but more so than any of their other albums (with the possible exception of Returning Jesus) rewards frequent listening.
