4 stars With Tim Powles now in charge of production and with Peter Koppes back we could figure out that some changes were about to happen. And those who supposed that were right. With a first listen this is quite obvious. The production, sound and atmosphere is now more complex, intricated and deeper if that was possible. These elements, along with the removement of some uncertaintity present in "Magician among the spirits" made possible a really solid, atmospheric, fantasy surrounded (just see at the name of the own album and listen to songs like "This is it") album.

This album has songs of very different sorts. You have mesmerizing ballads like "Tranquility" or "Lousiana" (the guitar work in this last one is fantastic), rockers like "No Certainty Attached" or "Ricochet" and evocative and unusual songs like "Anaesthesia" or "Glow Worm".

We can see here that the band here has clear ideas again after a period of certain crumbling. In fact, this album set the standards for the new style now performed by The Church and which goes until their last most known effort "Forget Yourself".
