    rainy day music, floaty with many hidden bitterness dressed in nonchalant. chilled, indeed.

    Original themes developed familiarly; original volcals -male/female- develop, lead and follow melodies; sometimes joyous, sometimes romantic, sometimes instrumental. "Simple Things" meets and exceeds my ecccentric longings. A very, very rare TEN.

    Few bands exceed Alpha in the creation of truly encompassing and sensual chill-out tunes, and while The Impossible Thrill fails to really explore new territory, it's revisiting familiar and hallowed ground.
  2. Woozy, trance-like, and sublime...
  3. The Impossible Thrill underscores Alpha's knack for lush, floating textures whose less beat-oriented groove emphasizes the "trip" component of so-called trip-hop.
