3 stars This was Fish's ninth studio album released in 2004. Again like most of his albums there are some songs I like and some I can't get into, so to me this is very inconsistant.

"The Field" sounds good early when the atmosphere rolls in. Reserved vocals follow then drums before 3 minutes as it builds. At over 8 1/2 minutes I feel this song over-stays it's welcome. "Moving Targets" has some good prominant bottom end to it as the vocals sing over top. Organ comes and goes in this fairly catchy tune. "The Rookie" is one I can't get into but the organ and rhythm section is good. "Zoo Class" opens with guitar as a full sound kicks in quickly, vocals too. Horns in this one as well. While this is catchy i'm not a fan.

"The Lost Plot" is spacey with lots of keyboards as vocals join in. Some nice guitar too. "Old Crow" is different. It's a fun with an almost hoe-down vibe. "Numbers" is a pretty good guitar driven tune. "Exit Wound" is really a bluesy ballad of sorts. "Innocent Party" builds quickly as minor guitar riffs help out. Vocals before a minute. Some good guitar 4 minutes in as well. "Shot The Craw" is ballad-like and so is the closer "Scattering Crows". It ends with birds singing until a murder of crows over-whelms them.

While i'm giving this 3 stars it's a tough one to actually recommend.
