"What a pleasant surprise this CD is...a far cry from the earlier Locust releases which were dark, dissonant trance-techno that were entirely instrumental. Mark van Hoen's project has evolved into a thing of beauty -- now graced with orchestral flourishes and the lush vocals of Annie Williams. Locust's new sound is like a hybrid of Massive Attack and Mono/Hooverphonic. "All in Your Own Way" could easily be a hit single in electronica circles. On an interesting note, one of the greatest trance ambient songs of the 90's, in my opinion, was W.F.O.'s "No-One in the World" (which appears on the Astralwerks' compilation "Excursions in Ambience Vol. 2"...highly recommended!) -- which samples the vocals of Karen Carpenter from "Hurting Each Other" -- and this one-off project was none other than Mark van Hoen! Again, a new version of this song appears on this album, now sounding gentler with trumpets. All in all, an excellent, uplifting album."
