2 stars Like their previous album "Field Of Names" I find this to have some good songs that are fairly straightforward. Some guest Spanish guitar on one track as well as sax on two songs.

"A Clown's Tale" is my favourite, I think because i've heard it before on some compilation cd. It opens with crickets and the sound of a party in the background as sax comes in then the full band.Vocals are next and a fairly heavy rhythm. A catchy tune with some good guitar as well. "Fake The Right" opens with guitar as sax and a full sound kick in including vocals. Not a fan of this one at all. "Your Other Way" features the Spanish guitar as well as keys, a beat and vocals. A mid paced tune with harmonies. "Icarus Unworded" opens with piano as reserved vocals join in. Some lazy guitar melodies follow with light drums. Not a big fan of this one. "The Usual Routine" is catchy with a bit of spice.

"Drifting" is a short song with acoustic guitar to start as fragile vocals join in. A mellow tune. "On The Fringe" opens with pulsating experimental sounds as keys then vocals join in.The experimental sounds fade away.The tempo picks up after a minute with synths coming and going. Not a fan of the backing vocals. "The Great Open" opens with synths washing in as reserved vocals come in. It does kick in pretty good before 3 minutes and even more a minute later. "Too Much Toulouse" is not the best way to end the album,at least for my tastes.

Not as good as "Field Of Names" (3 stars) hence the rating of 2 stars.
