    The greatest album ZTT never released. [Oct 2003, p.134]

    Thankfully... this reissue comes with a bonus instrumental disc, allowing the orchestral menace to speak for itself. [Oct 2003, p.127]

    A diverting listen. [Jun 2003, p.94]

    Too painful to be background music. [#5, p.89]
  5. There are no great ideas, or stunning movements, just ego-driven mush set to chocolate box arrangements. Oh, and a tendency towards the kind of vocals that Pink Floyd or Chris Rea might have been proud of.

    If you love music I can't recommend this album high enough.

    Rob Dougan is a talented man, a hugely underrated album.
    To echo Kerub88 new album please.

    Rob Dougan mélange étrangement musique classique et variété, ce qui consiste à combiner sur quelque rythme syncopé un certain nombre de cordesRob Dougan mélange étrangement musique classique et variété, ce qui consiste à combiner sur quelque rythme syncopé un certain nombre de cordes et une basse électro. La même recette est appliquée tout au long de l'album, accompagnée de sa voix éraillée de vieux crooner, laquelle si elle vous soûle est absente de certains morceaux reproposés en pure version instrumentale.

    Il faut dire que son accent et son marmonnement du pays des kangourous doit faire le même effet aux Anglais que les habitants des caribous pour nous. D'autres morceaux comme le célèbre Clubbed To Death (entendu dans le premier Matrix) sont dès le départ purement instrumentaux. Si ce n'est pas la trouvaille du siècle, cet album se laisse néanmoins écouter, son originalité et une certaine recherche dans ses arrangements ne sont pas déplaisantes à dire vrai.
