Re-issue album featuring Del Amitri's Justin Currie guesting on 3 of the 13 tracks: 'Girlfriend', 'No Risk No Glory' and 'Dial'. Other 10: 'Thrive', 'If Love Could Last Forever', 'East Of East Delier', 'Once Upon A Time On The Rapenburg', 'Kelvingrove Baby', 'Girl From The Polders', 'Lost Certainties', 'The Fragrance Remains Insane', 'Hellespont In A Storm' and 'Twelve'. The album has a romantic & soulful feel throughout, thanks in large part to the group's leader/ vocalist Chris Thomson's (Tom Waits/Tinderstick) style vocal delivery. Essential!
This one grows on you! Outstanding effort.

"The Bathers music contains some of the most goregous meoldies you will ever hear. The vocal style takes a while to get used to if Tom Waits isn't in your regular music rotation. I have a few of the Bathers CD, and this is the only one that gets 5 stars. This is the perfect album for that rainy night with that special someone. Soothing and always moving, a must have for any music fan of the soft drum brushes, light guitar washed with piano. It looks like this reissue has a different track numbering than the Marina records pressing, although the tracks look the same. The album art is different as well. The Marina records album art looks much softer and nicer. But the music is what counts here."

"This was the fifth album from Glasgows secret treasure.Not enough people have heard of this band which is a damn shame because ,trust me,they are superb.I'd recommend this album to anyone, i love it to death,especially classy songs like East Of East Delier,Girl From The Polders and the magnificent title track.For me it evokes the early Van Morrison classic "Astral Weeks" or maybe Bowies slower stuff (especially the glorious Lady Grinning Soul).Don't take my word for it,buy this and be swept off your feet!!!!"
