2 stars This album became the Solo album of the 14th totaling piece for Hammill. The depth of lyrics that a little difficult part and man created might have been remarkable in his work till then. It is ..composition of a good quality tune.. finished in this album by making good use of a technology at that time and machine parts.

Because the tune that listens easily is collected, a few elements of POP and impressions of groping might be given to the fan of hammill. However, the fact that establishes a real recording studio by him in the 80's and develops the creation of the music further is known well. Help of machine parts by the fact and Paul Ridout that he tried to put out the element of the band with this album splendidly expresses the directionality of the album though only the technology of machine parts at that time in this album stands out a little.

And, the point that should make a special mention is true said that Guy Evans and David Jackson also will participate in this album. The fan of Hammill might have expected this album was not a simple work in no small way by their working. The fan also certainly had the opinion that said that it will be a start of groping this work. However, it is guessed that a state-of-the-art technology revolutionized it to the flow of the directionality at which not the work said that it will be easy to listen simply compared with the work before but Hammill at that time aimed coming in succession well.

When this album is applied from the image etc. of the tune of the graceful impression seen in "A Black Box" and "Sitting Targets", etc. , I might feel some advancement and conversions of directionality. It is necessary to catch and it cannot know that the width of the creation of Hammill extended more than ..POP.. element however.
