Playing this album again now, I'm struck by how many elements of it are entirely innkeeping with the rough-diamond style employed on Sideways, and particularly [b]Impossible.
The tracks She Was and Shadow Dancing are becoming favourites on an album I've always liked. There is a rawness about them, especially the former, which hints at the grainy B-Movie soundtracks. There is a subtle sci-fi, dystopian thread running through it, and the under-production is very effective and heralds the ideas that we have seen explored recently in more depth.
I'd advocate this album as being more significant than its given credit for. Florian for instance, echoes 'Neon Lights' very effectively, setting the scene for sonic ideas developed on TPOE. [/b]
I totally agree Martin.
I've been playing my second boxset copy all week.
As I've said before the more i play it the more i like it.
Underated is an overused word but not here.
My view of this album has done a complete U-turn since first hearing it.
