3 stars Kit Watkins' first solo album, "Labyrinth" was performed by himself and Coco Roussel, a drummer he had worked with while in Happy The Man. This album is more of a true collaboration, with both musicians sharing compositional duties.

The music, while considerably lighter than in "Labyrinth", still has ties back to the HTM albums. There is plenty of work in odd time signatures, and the song structures are mostly progressive for their time.

There are a few songs where Watkins begins to stray toward the new agey style that he would venture into on later albums, but at least these tracks are few, and reasonably short, and Roussel's percussion tends to keep them from becoming too bland.

While I wouldn't call this a great album, it has plenty of nice points, enough to make it worthwhile.
