After Casanova Neil Hannon changed direction to further develop his love of Scott Walker style big ballads with a seven track mini album simply about love.
The word simple is not something that should be attributed to these songs, however. They aren't exactly torch songs but little love vignettes. As such they are more straightforward in feel. Gone is the leering "dirty raincoat" feel to be replaced by something altogether more mature and that's how this mini album should be approached. It's not groundbreaking, just a pleasant album of well produced material. In reality just six songs as Timewatching original appeared on the Liberation album.
