This British act, led by Harriet Wheeler, was always one of the more uplifting members of the shoe-gazer crowd, a point emphasized here by lovely lead single "Summertime" (which was released at precisely the wrong time of the year, sadly). The five-year hiatus from their last album has created a more mature, strum-along sound best heard on "Homeward," the guitar-textured "Another Flavor," and the orchestral "She." As for Wheeler, she's enchanting even when singing a track called "Monochrome." --Jeff Bateman

Nice adult comtemporary alternative rock. The singer is the high point--very expressive vioce.
Among British Guitar Pop's Finest 42 Minutes

"Out of the years and years of music I've heard in my life, this sublime album has held up over time to be among the five or six CD's I've listened to the most and still listen to regularly. Classic pop melodies with beautiful accoustic and electric guitar work, combined with mostly optimistic lyrics and longing, soaring, sensual vocals. It's both immediately accessible and subtle enough to improve with repeated listenings, with hooks that don't tire and a voice that always draws me back. Love it."
A really great CD

"I actually was at someone's house while they were listening to this CD and found the music absolutely a pleasure to listen to. I asked my friend what was playing and went out and bought the CD that day; after eight years, this is still one of my favorite CD's of all time (and I have a huge CD collection encompassing a very wide range of music). In fact, whenever I have it playing, other people always ask me about it and also find the music very enjoyable. I can't really put my finger on the defining characteristics of it that make the CD so addicting, I just recommend it to anyone who likes music that is slightly reminiscent of the 80s and that is both fun and somehow relaxing at the same time."
