This is a superb album. Steve Jansen & Richard Barbieri have produced a well rounded, easily accessable piece of electronic music that would please any Japan fan. It's hard to pick a highlight track from the listing as they are all brilliant. I bought the CD based on the 12" single of 'Shining', and instantly fell in love with it. At times, Steve Jansen sounds so much like his brother, you would think this was an early Sylvian album.

If you're one of those Japan fans who find much of the solo offerings, a bit too avante garde, this is worth checking out if you havn't already.
Don't be put off by it now being almost 20 years old, it really doesn't sound it.
As the other reviewers comments, the resemblance of Steve Jansen's voice to 'brother' David Sylvian is absolutely uncanny.

As an end to end album, I think it's the most enjoyable listen of all the spin-offs and incarnations (Rain Tree Crow, Nine Horses etc).
Being only around 39 minutes long it leaves you wanting more, I think after the final track (Pushing The River) most listeners will put it straight back on again.
It's a real gem this one, the big question is, how did so many of us miss it first time 'round ?

after david sylvian left japan for a solo career...these two former members formed a duo, and although the album was'nt a commercial success..it was critically acclaimed.

staying true to the japan sound in many places it was more accessible in places and vocally very similar to david sylvian..in fact steve jansen could be him!

the album opens with "catch the fall" a hugely atmospheric piece..staying true to the japan sound 7/10

"shining" was released as a single..it did nothing! still the japan sound is there with a pop edge..and great backing vocals from katie kasoon and p.p. arnold 8/10

"second sight" is a great track with stunning vocals and lyrics...one of my favourites 10/10

"love that you need" is another stunning track..brilliant lyrics..great vocals/backing vocals...mellow enough to send you to sleep 10/10

"real life, real answers" is upbeat yet staying true to their roots...at times a bit simple minds or depeche but unmistakably the dolphin brothers 9/10

"host to the holy" is a slower atmospheric piece..laid back with great vocals and lyrics..another favourite 10/10

"my winter" is largely a piano/vocal track..it is beautiful with stunning lyrics and probably the best vocal performance 9/10

"pushing the river" has been a personal favourite since i bought the album, great vocals, great lyrics..stunning muusically..and once you have heard it..it never leaves you head! 10/10

a great album that has stood the tests of time..fans of japan will love it...i was n't but i adore this album! i play it a lot 20 years later!

only one thing with the new version i have is it doesn't include the lyrics which my original cd did!

I'm probably one of the few that apparently didn't miss The Dolphin Brothers' Catch The Fall in the 80's -I have the vinyl record right here next to me. As a teenager, I was as a hardcore Japan-fan and immediatelly went on searching for every single information available on Japan's ex-members' new musical adventures right after the band's end.
These songs have haunted me for years, as they are wonderfully delicate, amazing elegant good-taste effective pop, wonderful lyrics... Touching, dancy songs are absolutely hand-in-hand here!... It's so sad that Jansen & Barbieri didn't continue with this partnership, developing the concept further.
I can only strongly recommend this material as some of the best good-taste effective commercial-atmospheric pop from the 80's.
None of these songs are exactly love songs, they are moody, dark, softly ressentful...
But Catch The Fall makes one want to fall in love again & again & again, more & more & more...

came across this album by accident! it is brilliant! there are no bad songs, sure its definitely rooted in the eighties and its two members of japan continue on their course, but the lyrics are transcendent as is the music. better than japan, a must have album for romantics new and old!
