4 stars This album has previously been released on One Little Indian Records (TPLP67/MC/CD). Now it has been remixed, remastered and released on the 3rd Stone Ltd. Label. It was originally released in 1994. The melancholic and sophisticated pop from this London duo is slightly more ambient, experimental and progressive on this release than on their "Carolina Skeletons" EP.

- The list of guest performances are very impressive, with names such as jazz legend Ian Carr, Dead Can Dance vocalist Lisa Gerrard, Japan's rhythm section: Steve Jensen and Richard Barbieri and KING CRIMSON's Robert Fripp and Mel Collins. They are all adding their personal musical flavour to the music. Besides the influence that these musicians have on the sound, there's also reminiscences to David BOWIE, Brian ENO, ERASURE, NEW ORDER, PET SHOP BOYS, PREFAB SPROUT, ROXY MUSIC, Hugh Cornwell/The STRANGLERS, David SYLVAIN and TALK TALK. In fact this album often reminds of Hugh Cornwell's "Wolf" album from 1988.

- If there's music in heaven, this must be what it sounds like. I'm very impressed by the music that Tim Bowness and Steven WILSON have created, and I'm eager to get to hear their complete back-catalogue. This is an excellent album. Recommended!
