Long awaited third album from Armstrong finds him doing what he does best. The emotional landscapes painted in these finely crafted pieces both wash over the listener, and grab you by the throat with moments of stunning beauty. Unlike his previous outings this sounds to me like a more rounded and complete concept album, where each track has been composed and placed in a carefully balanced running order. His previous albums contain absolutely stunning music, but feel more cobbled together from various dispirate projects.
Paul Buchanan's contributions are as always superb. His voice is changing as he ages, and while the range might not be where it once was, it's emotional angst is if anything, even more intense and upsetting.
All the collaborations work well and while there's nothing remortely upbeat here, I wouldn't expect there to be.
Well worth the wait. Find some you time, lock the doors, find an old lava lamp and lie back.

Yet again Craig Armstrong is taking us on a beautiful journey. You will be drowned in ocean of emotions. Through loneliness to love. This is a perfect time for music like this. Autumn/Winter

Loving this, after a very long wait since 'As If To Nothing'.
As one reviewer has already stated, this seems even more 'of a piece' somehow than Armstrong's last two 'solo' albums. A bit more organic & a little less electronic maybe.
And like them, you will soon be hearing this release in the background of X-Factor / Top Gear / etc etc.... But it really does deserve your undivided concentration as it has a lovely balance listened to as a whole album.
All the guest vocalists do great jobs, and fans of the Glasgow music scene will be particularly happy to hear Paul Buchanan, James Grant & Jerry Burns all making heartfelt contributions.
All in all, probably my favourite record of 2014 so far.

Maybe better known for the many scores he has produced for film. He had worked with massive Attack in the past. If you haven't heard him I'd suggest you check out his 2002 album - as if to nothing, and then his 1998 - the space between us.
Though he has produced lots of stuff these three belong together. they follow the same formula, orchestral pieces , mixed in with songs with a variety of guest vocalists. I guess tracks are recorded over a relatively long period, fitted around other work - although that is just a guess. Sometimes the music is reworked excepts from soundtracks, but I feel they work in the context of all 3 albums.

Having waited a long time for the third of this trilogy I do find myself a little disappointed, my expectation was too high, surpassing the 2002 release is pretty impossible. The tracks 'Crash' and 'strange kind of love' really stands out on a first listen, but I think the others are less imediate than on the previous 2 albums.
Overall this is a really good album but I think the earlier 2 are better because they combine electronica so well with the orchestration. To my ears this makes this latest release less varied, more mainstream, because it has less electronica.
Is it for you?
none of the 3 albums are upbeat, or life afirming. I like them for the same reason I like Talk talk, blue nile, Bliss - infact the singer with the blue nile is a guest vocalist.

Would be worth the price for the 2 tracks sung by Paul Buchanan alone, who must have one of the most heartbreaking deliveries of the past 30 odd years but also good to see the return of Scottish female singer, Jerry Burns ,who had an album out in the early 90s that I must admit I discovered some years later.

Compositions and arrangements by Craig Armstrong are as beautifully lavish as you would expect and a good appearance from Suede front man Brett Anderson too.Only slight nitpicking would be that a couple of tracks sound like they could have appeared on the Cafe Del Mar series some time ago. However the whole album is lovely late night stuff and , as I have only purchased the download today and played it a couple of times thus far, it may even reach 5 stars with more familiarity.

great contributions from james grant (love and money) and jerry burns.
chris botti and paul (genius) buchanan also add to the vibe.
to think he started his career in texas now he is the man behind most of the biggest soundtracks./
boys done well

Managed to catch Craig's concert at Celtic Connections where many of these tracks were featured, both the CD and the concert were first class. Craig's ability shines through and his guest vocalists are great. Katie O'Halloran,Jerry Burns, James Grant (Love and Money) and Brett Anderson ( Suede), and Paul Buchanan of Blue Nile Fame Craig is a modern day Mozart able to deliver sweeping classical lines while writing haunting love songs. He has made me appreciate film musical scores in a whole new way- check out Plunkett and Macleane as well.Craig is better known in the USA due to his film scores but certainly deserves more recognition at home.

Bought this because of the other reviews
So glad I did
Melodic and spacious, almost meditative
Shows off vinyl and hi-fi combo brilliantly
