At first I didn't like this Raincoats album as much as their first one. The songs were so ethereal, insubstantial. Later I came to love it for just those same reasons. The music wraps around you, beautiful and airy, and pulls you along with it. You'll find yourself crying and rejoicing with these songs, and not because of the profound lyrics. The music itself seems like pure emotion- for instance, "Baby" is a tale of longing, but you don't have to listen to the lyrics to find out. It pulls you, the intensity of the longing. Listening to this album is a spiritual experience.
