queencabbage this has amazing orchestration, which is flawless on this album, and the use of percussion, especially chromatic rivals that of no other, and also the melodies on this are fucking beautiful Favorite track: Suffer.

Hairyderriere Love Mute Heart, 12048 and 12051. Intelligent, considered, delightful, ethereal but not fey.

But actually, I love this whole album, as an album. Moreover, we now have this on vinyl (and have ordered a couple of spare copies). Have to say, the vinyl pressing is audiophile quality as well as completely flat (the disc). Very clear, dynamic, delicious.

Mr Calvert, please release more music. I will definitely buy, along with my friends. Favorite track: 12048.
