  • Summary: The London-based collective is joined this time out by the likes of Simon Raymonde (Cocteau Twins), John Grant (The Czars) and Paul Anderson (Tram).

  1. 80
    As powerfully evocative as a French arthouse flick. [Sep 2002, p.116]
  2. 70
    Post-techno production adds a depth and sheen to these fragile ruminations on the melancholy minutiae of existence. [Aug 2002, p.110]
  3. The jumps aren't so dramatic that it feels completely disjointed, as the whole release (as with releases in the past by the group) has an overall introspective and rather dark and moody feel.
  4. It lacks something crucial at its centre: definition, precisely. [#221, p.66]
  5. Whey-faced romantics in black clothing should form a queue. [Aug 2002, p.131]
  6. A less than engrossing record from Piano Magic was bound to happen at some point, but few could have predicted something as dull, drab, and ultimately powerless as Songs From the Chronic Fatigue Ward -- er, Writers Without Homes.
  7. 30
    Turgid at best. [#57, p.102]
