A tender album with frontman David Sylvian being a wonderfull lyricist, a bard of the 21st. century.
Good catchy pop songs with touches of jazz, electronica and some soul spices.
It is a very thorough production giving space for many well acclaimed musicians to contribute there skills; R. Sakamoto, Arve Henriksen, Theo Travis, Keith Lowe to just mention some, but all are up to that standard.
The lyrics are content, introspective, beautyfull and stirring, and foremost excellent.
A long anticipated album, that rewards richly for the stretch (huge) of many peoples patience.
