With so many other reviews this is probably unnecessary but being an "early works" fan; this one struck a chord for some reason - and no pun intended! After "Incantations", Mike and I drifted apart, so to speak. but for some strange reason, this record really appealed. It is quite gentle and very atmospheric; I found it relaxing yet uplifting. Mike guitar work is as lovely as ever, but effectively subtle with lots of various synth backfrops and soft percussive support. Yes - TSoDE, was an oasis in a barren landscape for and my relationship with Mike's music.
