3 stars We notice here a real evolution in the sound and keyboards: it is indeed much more modern than her previous albums. The keyboards create atmospheric textures, especially on side 2; the background is often really floating & ambient. I must admit that side 1 is pretty dull, except some good bits. Kate's voice is very nervous and excited, rather irritating, like it is the case on her preceding album "The Dreaming". I do not appreciate the omnipresent stressing & nervous sounds, a bit like on "The Dreaming" album. I find many passages to be slightly dissonant. There are many rhythmic drums with a repetitive hammering. The best tracks are the most mellow ones. The fretless-like bass on "Mother stands for comfort" and "Morning fog" is excellent. So, 3 stars for the first side and 4 stars for side 2 gives 3.5 stars. I do not feel comfortable listening the whole album. Kate can do quite better!

Raing: 3.5 stars
