One for enthusiasts - but the title track is a "must"
on 22 July 2001
Some tracks on this album sound embarassingly dated (such as Tommorrow Time) but, as always with Martyn, the gems shine through. The title track in particular is a moody, rhythmic and highly emotional effort that he has probably only bettered on Solid Air and Bless the Weather. A great band, good use of piano in particular and his trademark voice make this worth a listen. And I open the debate - can Beverley sing? Also give an ear to the track "John the Baptist" - try not to listen to the frankly silly lyrics but instead to the truly rocking folk rock band backing them up.
