5 stars There are few reasons why "X my Heart" is an one of most interesting albums in Peter Hammill's large (but always interesting) discography. It is a specific bridge between the climate of legendary LP's from the past, and from my point of view most powerful albums from years 1995-2005. It contains all elements necessary to understand why music of Mr. Hammill is so unique. First of all - beatiful and strong vocal (just listen to the acapella track "A better time" - there is no need to anything else, or "A forest of Pronouns" to hear His dynamite in the throat). For the second - great compromise of light and heavy weight compositions. My favourite one - "Earthbound", which sounds really enjoyable, and "A better time" in both version are the quiet part of an album. The songs like amazing "Forest of Pronouns" and "Narcissus (Bar & Grill)" are completely different - these ones wake you up, but in fantastic, intelligent way! Another songs aren't anonymous - "Ram Origami" - great song with interesting parts of David Jackson's sax, and "Material Possession, which"is the first time, that PH's song is reminding me some Ian Anderson's stuff, which I prize! The last thing, that makes "X my hearth" so valuable album are deep lyrics, and great idea to end LP in the similar way, how it is opened. Full recommendation!
