4 stars Have you ever thrown on an album, listened to it at a normal volume and then turned it up because the music was soft? Then WHAM!, a sudden sonic explosion blasts from your speakers. That's my brief description of this disc. Well, not really ;-P. I will say that it comes close. What we have here is an album that musically is delicate and fragile with bursts of energy in spots. Sylvia Erichsen's voice is very child-like, but she can belt out when need be. They use a multitude of instruments with finesse, with wind instruments coloring songs magnificently. Although they don't sound like many other bands, King Crimson's early to mid-period jumps up ever once in awhile. There's a definate 70's vibe. With space between instruments, there's not that 'fill up every space with sound' that permeates many modern bands songs. It sounds SO ambient and that's it's only drawback. Nothing actually sticks, but it sure is damn pretty! 3.75 stars.
