3 stars Blackfield's second instalment is hardly any different from the debut, the sound is a bit less polished, but at its heart, this is the result of Wilson's need to try out his mellow pop songs on us.

Just as one the first Blackfield he is quite successful in some tracks but comes off rather bland on others. The most melancholic songs are the most enjoyable. The bitter sweet taste of 1000 people and This Killer are a couple of tunes I occasionally listen to. Most of the songs pass by without causing any commotion. Those sung by Aviv Geffen are the worst, not in the least because of his more conventional pop vocals and inadequate English accent. Miss U is one that I just can't bear to hear.

An album that sounds like a routine job, not bad but simply forgettable. 2.5 stars.
