Review by Gatot
SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Honorary Collaborator
2 stars Guys, I would not recommend you to purchase this CD if you are not a fan of Peter Hammill. Even, you also love VAN der GRAFF GENERATOR, you still have to think twice. I love HAMMILL voice. I think his voice is so damn unique that no singer could emulate the way he sings. Especially, his voice so powerful at low tone. His timbre is excellent! You would not argue with me about this, I believe ...

HAMMILL's solo albums are consistent in terms of music style. He's still in prog arena. No exception with this record. Yes, the theme is "love" but it's not typical "love" you have imagined (in terms of music composition). I personally have a little chance to enjoy this record as it sounds too boring for me. But, don't get me wrong with my statement, because this record has a strong songwriting. I salute HAMMILL on his work.

The reason whyI rarely listen to this record is because the melody is bit weak. Ooppss ... sorry for HAMMILL's fans. What I mean is that, there is no melody that blow my mind when I listen to this record. But, I still have this record because I love his voice. That's it. What do you think? - Gatot Widayanto, Indonesia.

1 stars Hammill is a master of the rock ballad, all his albums contain poignant love songs with great lyrics and an emotional delivery that stay far away from cheap sentimentalism.

So why he chose to re-record some of them in this over-the-top and glossy arrangement has always mystified me. The mystery was revealed in the 90's when he often returned to this plastic sound and I suspect that Hammill simply likes this kind of approach. Unfortunately so, I would say. But that is a story for later.

Be warned. This is not a normal compilation but a rather disappointing re-recording from 1984 that has butchered all the life and feeling out of every single track. Except for The Looking Glass maybe which is still acceptable. Anyway, avoid.

5 stars This album is excellent. Forget VDGG, this is Hammill, and Hammill's records are different than VDGG records. This album contains some of his most beautiful love tracks re-arranged (some re-sung), and most of them are FAR superior than the originals (which were excellent in the first place). " ...

2 stars This LP is a compilation containing love songs from Hammill's impressive back catalogue. The songs are basically of great quality, and Hammil's voice (as always) a great feature. But this LP is more than just a compilation, the songs are unfortunately redubbed and remixed, some take severe dam ... (read more)
