  • Summary: Colin McIntyre returns with his third album in as many years, like its predecessors a bit, well, strange.
Score distribution:
  1. Positive: 5 out of 8
  2. Negative: 1 out of 8
  1. This album is bursting with quality. [Amazon UK]
  2. Strange, out of time, unfashionable, eccentric, obsessed with found sound, full of boffiny tics and tricks. [24 Jul 2004, p.48]
  3. If it’s slightly weaker than its immediate predecessor, that’s only because it’s following the same furrow.
  4. As the disc wears onwards, MacIntyre's pallid voice and incontrovertible wimpishness can sometimes bring on mild sensations of nausea.
  5. 40
    Few of the colourful oddities that filled his debut remain, but there's still much melodic guile to admire--albeit increasingly difficult to love. [Sep 2004, p.96]
  6. Half-written, overproduced songs collide with grandiose ideas, and the self-indulgence is astonishing as sounds and samples appear with little grace. [Aug 2004, p.116]
