on 2 December 2010
Recorded in 2002 this album being the follow on from the fantastic "The Magnificent Tree" is a whole concept album devoted to a fictional singer called Jackie Cane. The character is actually first found on a song on The Magnificent Tree and it would appear the band and writers took the character to develop this album.

I'm not entirely sure whether this album was formally released in the Uk hence why it is only available as an import. It certainly stands out as a different to Hooverphonic's other work and my feeling is that the tracks are all similar with nothing that much to stand between. That is not to say the album as a whole is not pleasant with the wonderful Geike Arnaert's vocals standing out strongly and there is a heavily reliance on string arrangement (probably trying to cash in a bit on the sound of the commercially successful singly 'Mad About You' on 'The Magnificent Tree'). Interspersed are samples from the Walker Brothers to Zero-G's 'Deepest India'.

Therefore not a bad effort but just doesn't quite do it in the same way that their other albums have. However, that should not put you off buying it.
