4 stars A thoroughly underrated LP on PA....this is the best Eno OR Cale LP in yonks. Yeah, it's not an Eno ambient album, it's more akin to the four pop/prog albums he put out in the seventies. Yeah, it's not a Cale classical expirement or an attempt at tone poetry, it's more in the mode of his Island LPs in the 70s. The two harmonize, lyricize and do some amazing things musicwise to create an absolute classic pop album - in my opinion, the best pop record of the nineties. It's intelligent music with a plasticine's a timeless period piece from the's absolutely full of contradiction - it's modern sounding, yet a throwback. The songs individually are fantastic, but as a collecitve whole they gain meaning and gradeur. Any fan of poppy Eno or Cale will adore this record.

4.5 stars....a must have for fans. Eno or Cale beginners would be better served elsewhere, but for those in the know this is the place to go!
