Essential Bristolian soundtracky trip-hoppers second LP from back in 1997. This is the one that eschewed their debut's occasional pop moves and delved deep into sample-delica and disturbing textures. It's an intimate and occasionally frightening listen full of regret and pathos between the grooves.

9/10 Jack Customer review, 28th July 2017
A classic album. The fabulous acid new wave post goth Bristol sound. Even the name of the band is taken from the misty North Somerset town.
If you are considering this album, then you probably already know you want it. There isn't anything I can fault with the production or the performance. I love the vocals as well as the instrumentation. The chiming guitar and haunted rhythms are a perfect accompaniment to the haunting melodies. The sound is beautiful and crisp and perfect for putting on while lounging or relaxing.
