Everything works in this genuine masterpiece of an album. From the instrumental to Guy Garvey's lyrics, to the album cover and Garvey's vocals. This album is an essential listen for anyone and everyone. Guy Garvey channels Paul Heaton throughout this release, and it works masterfully.

Every track is standout and perfect in their own way, but some of the best tracks include Grounds for Divorce, The Loneliness of a Tower Crane Driver and its wonderful drums, and The Fix, as well as the absolute ... read more

I knew of microtonality before this album, but not that it was something worth (or something able to be) experimented on up until listening to this record. This is not for everyone, and in some cases it is not for me, but it is an undeniably strong album that is worth checking out.

The standout track of this record is the fantastic opener ... read more

The gorgeous album cover, with the track listing ... read more

I have never been to a nightclub - and they're not even open at the moment - so maybe I just don't get this album and I am but a mere pleb. Regardless, that does not stop this album being the embodiment of the ... read more

This album is like a soundtrack to your dreams. The absolutely stunning album cover is exactly what this record sounds like, with its angelic, gliding instrumentals that make you just want to drop everything you're doing and let go of everything on your mind.

This album is only 8 songs long, and it is truly incredible that all are around four to five minutes, as they all glide by without a moment's notice. The ambience is what makes this record, and the reoccurring rain in the background of ... read more
