Momus calls this album "Pastoral Horror" and it's very appropriate. It's all wonderfully understated Momus tracks and vocals. The lyrics are clever as always, but the theme here seems to be loneliness on many different scales and the only time someone seems to have companionship is through a morbid horror erotic experience, "Dunes" dealing with a succubus. This man can't put out albums quick enough, and he's always recording. He's got good momentum working with his last few albums.
