    It is one of the best albums of his that I have heard, and I have heard them all. I believe that he should get more recognition for his obvious talent

    Haunting melodies, unexpected harmonies, deep feeling, and gorgeous overall effect make this album a highly impressive effort.

    I was really disappointed and pessimistic when I learned that Sheik decided to write music and leave lyrics to a 'poet'. Yet It is a excellent album and I couldn't help but come around to it.

  1. Unlike his two previous albums, Sheik has handed lyrical duties to playwright Steven Sater, and has chosen to expand on his abilities as a musician. The combination is a flawless one, with Sheik's subdued and thoughtful music complimenting Sater's reflective words.
  2. A rich collection of tunes that definitely will put you in the mind of [Nick] Drake--but stop one (small) step short of sheer imitation.
  3. This is Duncan Sheik at his most orchestrally, acoustically indulgent, and it's a lovely, haunting effort.
