2 stars A one dimensional album that, if you're in the right frame of mind you may find beautiful and peaceful. If you're not you'll find it a pile of boring kack. A logical successor to 1991's 'Laughing Stock' Lp by 'Talk Talk', this one is much quieter and basically far too frail and weak.

There's a lot less going on in here than any 'Talk Talk' album and it may sound fairly flat and miserable to most listeners. However - the guy's got such a mesmeric and original voice that you can't help but be captivated every time he opens his big Bryan Ferry mouth. Honestly, aren't they twins joined at the hip?

It's such a pity that Mark Hollis jacked it in 12 years ago. The guy had such a great, distinctive voice and it's a real pity he's no longer around.

Quite frankly after 20 minutes of this I've had enough. It goes no-where, sounds lethargic even by latter day 'Talk Talk' standards. It means nothing (apart from 1895-1915, which other than the title is feeble storytelling in itself) and has none of the intensity that his former band once had.

A dreary, sparse, sleepy and uninspiring album. Definitely Do not drive a car when listening to this album! I always feel like I've just popped 17 Mogadon sleeping pills after listening to this.
