4 stars There is not a bad song in here. In fact, each one, is a complete work in itself. As is often the case, ANT play all the instruments on this. Mostly guitar (with some very unusual tunings), and a stand-out piano solo. My favorite tracks are 3-9. That is the best meat in any sandwich!! I particualrly like #3, Tibetan Yak Music, #4, Lullaby - Old Father Time, and the MASSIVE piano song, #9, Autumnal. Play that song on a late Autumn day when the leaves are already off the trees and blowing around the ground, oh, and make sure the sky is grey, and you will definatley know how and why he wrote that. It is a work of art, plain and simple. Love lost, love missed, opportunities gone by - that's what I get out of it. If you've never heard Spanish, or Flamenco guitar palyed on a 12-string, you're in for a real treat. I can't imagine that he didn't end up with bloody fingers after recording this. This is album to be savored.
