3 stars There are few albums I think of as just being "good". I usually like or dislike things more enthusiatically. However, this album is one that I would classify as being just good. It's a pleasant sounding album but nothing to make you really sit up and take notice. It starts with Higher Circles, which is an eighties sounding pop song. You could easily confuse it with the output of an eighties pop band. A track that stands out a bit is Alaska because the second half is instrumental. However, the "I'll Ask Her/Alaska" pun is a bit painful to hear. For me, the best track on this album is the second bonus track Insomnia, which is done by the 2005 line-up, including Clive Nolan on the keyboards.

So this album is OK but nothing to write home about.
