3 stars An interesting, atmospheric, even ambient album, but by no means the masterpiece some believe it to be. Bowness's voice is fragile and wistful, but he tends to sing all on the one level, with no highs or lows. The songs likewise also seem to be on one level, not much variation here. The sort of music you have to be in the mood for. Late at night, with the lights low, or off, if you're in contemplative mood, this is ideal. If you're thinking of playing something on a bright, sunny, summer's day, this isn't for you. Feeling optimistic? Happy? Go and listen to something else. Feeling depressed? This is for you! I'm not knocking it. the production is up to the usual Wilson standards, and his stamp is all over it. I much prefer his 'proper' band though, PT. This has its niche, its place however, in people's collections. Certainly not the worse thing I've ever heard, nor the best. Enjoyable in small doses.
