If, like me, you rate Will Sergeant as one of the most original, innovative guitar players to come out of the eighties (John McGeogh being the other) you will enjoy this immensely. Now that the Bunnymen thing is to try and write "proper" songs it is great to hear Will (and Les) go off in this fascinating direction.
The label "prog" keeps coming up with Poltergeist but it is all a bit misleading. These are long instumental pieces but Will is the first to admit he's no virtuoso musician - and he's all the better for it! He's into soundscapes and textures. Maybe "prog" means something different these days.
The album title is, I suspect, deliberately pretentious but it is also on the money. You can get lost in this stuff - with no verse, chorus, middle 8 structure to confine it the music just flows into all sorts of wondrous directions.
I'm off to see the chaps in York in October where they will be augmented by a light show I believe (and the terrific Liverpool based band "Bird" in tow).
I'm gonna calm down a bit and go and buy the new Glide album now.
