awe-inspiring, 10 Nov. 2004
it is quite hard to put into words just how great this album really is. I have had it for a few years now and yet can still listen to it like i bought it yesterday. the production is so good that thee are hidden treasures that lurk deep in the mix that only repeat listenings will uncover. It is hard to pick out exemplary songs however 'i want wind to blow' shows the massive range on this album starting with gentle strumming then singing the stopping only to restart and burst (this is the only word to describe the transition!) in to the title track. Also 'Map' is perhaps the best example of what people can do with a recording desk if put to it and there are also lovely songs to melt the heart like 'i'll be in the air' It is hard to recomend other albums that sound like this to get you interested as it is such a distinct style so just take abit of a plunge and find that this is the most rewarding £10 you are ever likly to spend on music. I have am still yet to hear another album as good as this!
