Debut solo album from the former leader of the Talk Talk, released in 1998, 7 years after their decline. An intense, emotional draining collection of songs intimately produced with piano/guitar/harmonium/bassoon/clarinet backings -- this is the lo-key orchestral pop masterwork that many thought couldn't be made any more. Damaged, moody, and produced with a post-Feldman attention to small sounds, this is a completely moving album. "Deceptively simple acoustic surfaces shimmer with all manner of spring-loaded detail, choked and wrenched vocal performances, miniature symphonies of wind instruments and references to the recording process itself."--The Wire.
