Customer Review

on 12 March 2008
As you may notice, the majority of reviews on this page are probably out & out Sylvian/Japan/Nine Hourses fans. With this in mind you can start to see how this CD is talked about as the next thing to genius. Well that's not quite the case, or not as yet. I think that the album, which I bought on the back of some of these reviews, is a good example of someone starting to be his own man, often no more than sketches, need a little development on the 'harmonic' front. One song with a nice atmosphere based on a odd meter (7/4, 5/4 etc) is great, but somehow the songs seem to be organised around the same principals. However, saying that there are many excellent moments - guest voices, atmospheres, interludes etc, which make this an interesting CD. Steve Jansen is certainly a very creative musician and one hopes that he will develop the ideas he has on this CD even further.

I should just add a comment ...... it's now 2010, and the original review that I wrote (above) was written in 2008. I haven't changed my opinion from the above article but it's maybe helpful to say that this CD still sits in my CD player regularly which shows, I'm still listening to this album - it has definitely stood the test of time. And lastly why did I give it 4 stars originally and now 5 stars? Well, for the same reasons as above, I'm still listening to it on a regular basis.

If you enjoy Steve's percussion interludes you maybe interested to check out Thomas Strønen!!!
