5.0 out of 5 stars
Astonishingly good, 29 Oct 2010
James have produced some great stuff over their long, off-and-on, career - and some mediocre stuff too. But quite how, post-reformation, they can come up with new material this good defies logic and expectations. Their recent releases have followed an upward trajectory, and with Dust Motes they have created something so haunting and affecting that it would readily slot ito a 'Top 5 James Songs of All Time'. Were ever such a list to be compiled. Throughout, the album has a hypnotic quality and a sinister edge uncommon amongst their previous work: it's spellbinding stuff.
