I stumbled upon this album when doing a search on The Blue Nile ........ and I fell head over heels. This is an absolutely stunning album with touches of the 'Nile' but also Richard Ashcroft of The Verve fame. It is moody and very atmospheric and hasn't been out of my car CD player since new. It's not often an album gets me on first, second or third play; I usually take time to settle into them, but this got me right from the start. If you're thinking about buying, DON'T......just DO IT, you will not regret your choice.
