Review by kev rowland
SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Honorary Collaborator
3 stars The 16th album from Robin came about when he decided to revisit material that had been recorded over a number of years (going back as far as 1991) but had not been released for whatever reason. Robin then completed the songs ready for this album. Originally these would have been recorded as Robin Taylor, others as Taylor's Universe and there is also a live song by Taylor's Free Universe. While possibly not as focussed as other albums (this is a compilation of unreleased material from a long period of time after all), yet again the listener is taken into the heady world of the Dane. "Don't Drink and Drive" is less than two minutes long yet is a powerful rock song showing how repeated melodic ideas can build to a climax.

Others such as "Baroque Ideas" are far more electronic in approach, while the final song "Lass Mich Los" is by far the most challenging ? given that it is more than 12 minutes of free form jazz and RIO. For fans of Taylor then this album is of course essential as previously unreleased material is now available, but this may be too much for the casual listener, particularly the song by TFU.
