This review is from: Mark Hollis (Audio CD)
This really is an exceptional album. Like all the best things in life it is an aquired taste. The first time I listened it made almost no impression on me at all - and I was brought to it by my enjoyment of the more reflective tracks of "Spirit Of Eden"!
The brilliance comes from the sheer sensitivity and economy of the recording - there is not a single superfluous moment. It is like the sparsest of pencil drawings.
It is a mark of genius that he has been able to reduce each track to little more than handful of musical and vocal gestures.
Just to think that I may have missed this one!
