This is just… So long, and for very little gain. There isn't much here to really get into, and none of the tracks really deliberately stand out to me. I had never really listened to The Waterboys before this album, and I couldn't really see myself wanting to come back for more in the future.

Favorite track: Be My Enemy

Not perfect, there´s a "cover" of Maggie´s Farm for some reason, but when it´s good... it´s special.

Of course it's epic but it has so strong melodies and a reassuring power that won't only present you the sea but it will make you swim within its majesty.
