    jeez, the dissonance sends my mind in all new different places... such a challenging record. It won't intrigue everyone hence the moaning about "eugh too indulgent", but they're predictable wafflery. :)

    I was planning on checking this one out for a while now, but all the arguments surrounding it discouraged me a little bit. Now, I'm happy I did anyway.

    his attention to emotional detail, and his ability to capture the intangible. Clearly David explores the audio landscape like a painter approaches a canvas.

    Easily the best Sylvian album. His depression about his divorce is brutally, yet poignantly, exhibited.

    The free-improv guitar tracks don't exactly do it for me, and kind-of ruins the feel of the rest of the album. Still, it's a great album nonetheless.

    On my first few listens, I used to thought that "well, sure this sounds quite interesting; but I dunno if I'll ever return to it... Last track was very nice though." Fast forward a few months later (being actually forgot anything about it), I decided to listen to this again and all of a sudden it became one of the most rotated album on my list. From out of the blue, what was sounded far too cerebral and austere to my liking, now sounds very natural, and vital. I guess sometimes you don't have to force yourself to 'difficult' albums.

    First and last tracks nice, rest kinda boring. Worst Sylvian album overall, needs more listens from me though. Would've worked better w/ more Fennesz and less Derek Bailey, even though I'm a big fan of Bailey he just doesn't gel w/ Sylvian.

    An absolute masterpiece. Different from, but an equal of, 'Secrets of the Beehive'.
