I now feel ashamed to admit that I wasn't expecting this to be fantastic. While I knew Tim Bowness was half of the duo that is No-Man, I had always assumed that my love for the band chiefly lay with Steven Wilson. It appears that Tim Bowness can be every bit as dramatic, subtle, and sublime as anything that No-Man has released and I'm glad to be proved wrong.

If at any time this album sounds like No-Man, it is because it was written by Tim with a No-Man release in mind. The song writing is brilliant, the musicianship is superb and even Tim's vocals seem stronger and less whispery. The second disc of bonus material is every bit as good as the 45 minute long main album.

This may be the breakthrough album Tim needs.

First of all let me say that this album (which is great on both vinyl and CD btw) needs to be listened to over time! Don't judge this on a first or second listen! Like many of the best albums it really grows on you! Tracks like the Peter Gabriel-esque 'Warm Up Man Forever' or 'Beaten by Love' are rhythmically driven pieces with excellent lyrics (the latter about a Dominatrix no less!) while the more reflective 'Songs of Distant Summers', 'Dancing For You' or 'Smiler at 50' recall the best of No Man (Bowness' former band). 'I Fought Against the South' reveals more angst and emotion backed by some heavy rock guitar on the chorus while 'Waterfoot' sounds so bucolic in an English 'folksy' way it's redolent of Nick Drake. Some beautiful string accompaniment on many of these tracks gives the album a 'classical' touch to complete the package. Prog rock? Well yes but it's very much MODERN Prog with the emphasis upon carefully crafted songs as opposed to 'clever, clever' chord sequences. A triumph - My score 91%.

So much more complete than his first solo effort.
This album occupies the space between No Man and Slow Electric.
Having the No Man live band contribute along with Colin Edwin from Porcupine Tree, really expands the soundscape.

A must for anyone who likes No Man and Tim`s other work.

Only downside is Amazon not giving an mp3 version with the album

If you like No Man (& you probably do if you're reading this) then you must add this CD to your collection. It's beautiful! The sound is perfect blasting out of my speakers! This album needs to be played loud! Even the Mrs likes it & she's as hard to please as someone who's very hard to please!

In my opinion Tim Bowness is one of the best lyricists around, and yet has always been amongst the most underrated musicians. Here he reveals his true skill in both. As the long perceived 'side-partner' of NO-MAN, one reviewer puts it beautifully: with his album he "step[s] out of the wings and has his turn in the spotlight."

And he so deserves it.

Outside the excellent releases of NO-MAN, a superb back catalogue awaits those not yet familiar and willing to explore his work. Among which are his collaboration with Peter Chilvers: CALIFORNIA, NORFOLK, the SAMUEL SMILES album: WORLD OF BRIGHT FUTURES, and his previous solo release: MY HOTEL YEAR.

Buy "...the ever changing certainties that come and disappear..." and be fully rewarded.
