8/10 Jack 7th June 2017

This is a wonderful record. Jansen stages his talents as a songwriter, drum programmer and especially arranger. The vocal contributions integrate well but the art is with the arrangements. This is an intimate and delicate record, made of small sounds that create a very soothing atmosphere. It reminded me of some of the work that Harold Budd and David Sylvian have done, but it also has its own personality. I really have enjoyed it tremendously and I hope Steve Jansen continues to release more music.
