3 stars I'm going to rate this one at 3 stars [well, 3.5 really], but boy, is this one of the most enjoyable 3 stars record or what! A superb, calm, moody, prog, art rock, trip-hop, mellotron and whatnot display os sensibility takes place here and you want to be there to witness it. This is really a fine trip to the place "full of magnets and miracles" as the lyrics go and its the music you want to go to sleep to, or do other marvellous things. No killer epic, no over the top instrumentation, no unearthly blend of styles, but solid and inspired music writing and a gentil female voice that's addictive, making you want to hear all of their albums. This is proof of how harmonies actually make great prog. Everything flows, from one song to another, soothed by the absolutely stunning vocals. Oh, did I say not a blend of genres? Well, not if you take apart the jazz, psychedelic or trip-hop influences that is [there's even a hint of a blues-rock-country-like guitar sound on Stream]. But this is not just Chillout Moods for the progheads, as it has its proggish moments and even traks that start mellow get a nice spin towards the end [Happiness, Absinth Minded, Stream]. I cannot recommend one single track that is a standout because each song here is a small jewel that shines so much stronger along with the others. And you're guaranteed to fall in love with the vocals.
