Great under-rated album!
Superstar to Commercial Oblivion

"Neither Fish Nor Flesh's downfall is it's lack of real commercial singles and a certain jealous Sony labelmate's sabotage if you believe Terence himself. That's not to say the music here is any worse overall than Hardline. The unofficially Stevie Wonder Summer Soft sampling "To Know Someone Deeply", Motown-esque "Billy Don't Fall" and the gospel attack of "I Don't Want To Bring Your God's Down" are some favourites of mine. Don't believe the hype, there was no dramatic artistic post-Hardline disaster."
A heavenly feel, but TTD is reaching for more...

"This is truly a mood album, but what mood is it? This is the main question you'll ask yourself as you play this over and over, which might be T's main goal on this, his unforgettable second album. The delectable "I Have Faith..." will make you a believer in his lyrical ability, and "I Don't Want To Bring your Gods Down" will make you stand up and say amen. His influences truly shine here: James Brown, Sam Cooke, maybe early Michael Jackson and Prince with his syrupy falsetto. Definitely a richly textured if somewhat unevenly sequenced set of sounds from a most unpredictable artist. Still, I got the feeling he was reaching for more, but couldn't put it on the record. It ends too soon, I wanted just one more song. But I'm moody, too. TTD and I share the same birthday, maybe that's his point: keep us wanting more. Children of the Ides do that. If this is his goal, yeah, it worked! Pop it in and press "play." You won't be disappointed."
