5 stars This album is superb. Although it is far away from the VDGG stuff, it is a deeply personal album about a break-up. Hammill opens up his heart and delivers it, bleeding, all over this album.The songs are all fragile emotional glimpses, and the listener is sometimes embarrassed to be witnissing his hurting and suffering with such openness. No wonder Marillion have pictured the cover of this LP on their "Fugazi" album, which was also dealing with very charged emotional and personal stuff. If you're looking for a prog album in the vein of Pawn Hearts you'll be disappointed, but if you embrace this album for what it is, you're in for a moving and deeply disturbing personal experience. Highlights are "Yoga", "Alice", er...welll all of them actually. 5 stars.
