Phoneteus
3 stars A strong, very promising beginning, but then Peter seems to have forgotten to include great melodies. Don't get me wrong, this is an ambitious record, in some respects even comparable to Silent Corner and other great records from the 70s. But it does lack energy, enthusiasm and emotional depth. Perhaps what bugs me most is the fact that despite its intellectual concept of communication as something impenetrable and unfathomable, there is not much feeling I can relate to. This has always been a quality of Hammill's music though. An important one, IMhO. Had this been a full blown production with drums and stuff, I'm sure it might have sounded better! There are loud, noisy, disturbing parts, but too many shallow or predictable moments, I'm afraid. Hammill is at his best whenever he's absolutely devoted to what he's doing and even goes over the top! This is what fascinates me about this guy. A *must* for the fans, yes, but difficult to access for everyone else and, what's more important: difficult to love... Recommendable: What, now - X My Heart - This
