3 stars I have mixed feelings about this album. The lyrics and the songwriting are bith very good throughout this album. They are not the best from Peter Hammill, bet they are easily not the worst. And his performance is somewhat subdued. There is very little of the screaming, over- emoting Peter Hammill that can sometimes make his work difficult to listen to.

My problem with this album is the heavy reliance on synthesizer sequences, which after all of these years, sound pretty cheesy at times. Ah well, at least it's another Peter Hammill album, and there can never be anough of those.

My favorite tracks on this one are the weird Evidently Goldfish and Green Fingers. This is a nice album if you can get past the above mentioned sequences.

Evolver | 3/5 |
