Already a fan of Hooverphonic before hearing this album, at first it took a while to get into because of the huge contrast between this and their prvious albums, but now it's sunk it. Amazing how they managed to transform their earlier trip-hop style works to a more classical form. I just heard the Sarah Brightman cover of Eden, makes me appreciate Geike's vocals even more. BUY IT!!!

If you already listened to Hooverphonic, this one will be a surprise. They left their trip-hop style behind to record their best known tracks live (but without public) and acoustic. This band is really taking chances, after "Introducing Jackie Cane", a strange concept album, they are once again trying another road. This is what makes this band special!
If you do not know Hooverphonic yet, it will not give you a fair idea of their style (closer to Massive Attack, Portishead, Lamb and early Morcheeba, you should rather try "Blue Wonder Power Milk" and "the Magnificent Tree" if you enjoy trip-hop) but if you like quiet, acoustic music, you will enjoy it.
The voice is incredible, the acoustic versions full of passion, with just piano and strings...
This is the kind of CD you listen too at night.
