I love Gavin Harrison’s fussy hi-hat, so I’m sold. I have my playlist for this album directly after The Future Bites and it’s pretty good when this album starts up. I need to ponder Bruce Soord’s vocals a bit more before I write any more about that.
This is supposed to be Steven Wilson’s “pop” record. I don’t know that that is my impression of this album at all: replace the drum machine with acoustic drums and you’d have yourself a pretty standard Steven Wilson album. The songs are growing on me and it’s likely my opinion of the album’s standout songs will evolve over time.
