His magnum opus. An incredible journey of songs, built over the last 15-20 years.

You can hear throwbacks to previous albums including Life In Slow Motion, Draw the Line, Mutineers and Gold In A Brass Age. This is a feast for the ears and is almost a compilation of David's greatest numbers. This is a dream for life long fans, such as myself.

Melancholic, beautiful soundscapes.
