4.0 out of 5 stars
Hmm..., 5 Feb. 2005
This certainly is an interesting album. I bought it about six months ago, and was initially very disappointed. It just seemed a little too wacky, lacked cohesion and changed genre with such aggression that it didn't work.
Sufice to say, this CD soon ended up on the bottom of my cd rack, far below the wonderful Air, Goldfrapp and Zero 7. Anyway, I don't know why but I picked it up and listened to it again. And again. And again. It started to grow on me, and the subtle nuances glimmered through... 'Guilded splinters' is superb, throaty almost with a strange eastern riff - totally different from the Paul Wellar version! 'Non non non' is a smoothy, if it were a piece of furniture it would definitely be a velvet chair!!! 'Seeline woman' is also a stand out track.
This album made the most sense in the summer, sitting around an open fire in the back garden, drinking wine and chatting about crap with good friends!
In conclusion, a grower but a goodie!
