3 stars Not a bad record, lots of variety too. It helps having Steven Wilson guest on guitar.

"Tumblweed" is a little too poppy for my tastes, but the piano intro is a treat. "Mission Statement" is another one I don't like, sounding like a black gospel song from way back. "Incomplete" is a fabulous duet, it's about a man and a woman's relationship. Acoustic guitar is strummed with background synths as the vocalists sing in a reserved way.

I also like "Tilted Cross" a Folk song with acoustic guitar and violin. Funny but I prefer these more laid back tunes to the uptempo ones with Fish singing with more aggression. "Faith Healer" is a cover song and Wilson provides some very good guitar, and there is some amazing violin as well. "Rites Of Passage" is a reflective ballad with piano, aboe and violin. "Plague Of Ghosts" consists of 6 songs really. Lots of atmosphere and reserved vocals. Not really a fan of ths one.

Barely 3 stars for me.
