Roland.....We're not worthy!!!!!!!
on 10 December 2001
I struggled a bit with this album when I first got it though I did quite like 'Ticket to the World' and 'Low Life'. One night whilst in a more receptive frame of mind I put the CD on, sat back and closed my eyes....the music suddenly came out and slapped me in the face....what a great album! I'd hoped for a Tears For Fears style album along the lines of 'Elemental' but got so much more (not that Elemental still isn't great). 'Low Life' will knock you out your socks, 'Under Ether' will throw you around the room with great force and 'Snowdrop' will slam you back into your socks again. I could go into a blow-by-blow break down of the tracks on this album but I won't; just buy it, find an hour or two to yourself in the dark and listen to it. I can't guarantee you'll take to it immediately but stick with it and all will become clear. You will soon be taking a trip to the Twilight Zone, to a mysterious land called 'Roland Orzabal'....believe me, you will not want to come back.
