A few words - if you are familiar with, and fond of Harold's work, I am certain you will not be disappointed by this new collection, although it bares a certain similarity to his previous output in terms of form and content, at least that is true for the first 8 tracks in the collection where we have the somewhat diffusive moody ambience we are accustomed to hearing, replete with carefully chosen notes descending onto a broadly textured canvas, to bask in the echo chamber.
Then, to my surprise, the album veered off into rather muted string-based orchestral pieces - pleasant, thought-provoking, but for me, rather out of sync with the other pieces. It is as though we have two bodies of work, joined at the hip.
The orchestral pieces will no doubt find their way into cinema one day, as haunting back-drops to something quietly miserable.
Overall, this would not rank as my personal favourite album by HB, but, regardless of that - 4 stars out of 5.
