3 stars This one of Hammill's better albums of the post Virgin era (after And Close As This). It is essentially acoustic with the guitar as the main instrument, which gives this album a more natural feel that reminds us of the good old Hammill we all love so much (Chameleon,...). Once again he is performing all the instruments, with guests Stuart Gordon and David Jackson. Although the main problem after the Virgin era is that he has mellowed a lot, this album features some "mellow" songs and some more into the classic vein, (i.e. with a bit of agressiveness, edge and slight insanity ) Highlights from the "classic vein" songs are "Crossed Wires", "This is the Fall" and "We are written".
