4 stars Have had a good few listens now and at the moment this is striking me as highly enjoyable, while maybe lacking the depth of its predecessor Metamorphosis (personal favourite). The orchestration on Guernica and Book of Dreams really adds to those tracks and would be nice to see this developed a bit further. Other favourites are the mellow Turn the Tide and closer Red (Not the KC classic!) with some delightful contributions from the ever excellent Chris Fry. There are also some more up tempo moments such as Raw. These do less for me personally, but the variety certainly keeps the album interesting. Christina's vocals are exquisite as always, but overall for me I feel that this is a very creditable effort, rather than a masterpiece.
