3 stars This album was released in a time when Hammill wasn't pursuing a solo-career at all. The songs are leftovers, unfit for VdGG. That's not necessarily a bad thing. Many of these songs are lyrically more personal than PH's previous songs, but musically some are a bit "light weight" or even jolly, like Sunshine and Imperial Zeppelin. Not the dark, depressing stuff Hammill's fans love so much. On the other hand, Vision, Summer Song and The Birds are truly emotional gems. On the whole, Fool's Mate is nothing to get really excited about, but as a collection of early PH songs it's good fun.
