4 stars The Secret Migration is wonderful. It has an earthy, natural beauty. The lyrics are magical too and float over the group's stunning psychedelic tapestry.

The dark 'Secret for a Song' and the elegant 'My Love', are immensely pleasurable tracks.I also absolutely love "Across Yer Ocean" and "Diamonds" The musicianship is marvellous throughout, especially the piano and keyboard work as well as the howling guitars.

It is hard to find faults with this album. One minor complaint is that there is simply not enough variety, with none of the suprise of the previous two releases. Nonetheless, all of the tracks are really great.

There is something special about Mercury Rev. Dare I say, there will never be anything made like this again. In my opinion, this band are one of the most underlooked and dynamic of the last couple of decades. This, along with "All Is Dream" represents them at the pinnacle of their creativity. This is more than worth giving a few spins to capture the magic. Four solid stars.
