    Hidden Orchestra occasionally skirt the borderline of cheese, but thankfully manage to stay on the right side of it, for the most part.

    As it stands, the rich resources Acheson has at his disposal are sadly compromised and the orchestra is indeed hidden rather than exposed.

    A review? Well, I could do no better (or even half as well as) Okayplayer's. My favourite track Reminder, exuberant, dark and with a beat you'll want to hear again and again.
