Format: Audio CD
If for any reason you're reminded of No-Man while listening to Abandoned Dancehall Dreams, this is absolutely normal, given Tim Bowness wrote the majority of the album with No-Man in mind. This disc was originally supposed to be the follow-up to 2008's Schoolyard Ghosts. Unfortunately, when Steven Wilson had to back out of the project due to other commitments, Bowness decided to turn it into a solo effort, and the attentive listener is more than likely to pick up on some subtle differences between this one and No-Man releases.

This is a concept album loosely based around similar lyrical ideas: Bowness writes separate stories about different people exploring themes like aging, growing apart, the idea of change and how individuals may resist (or accept) it, and escaping one's predicaments in life. That said, there is no set storyline that runs throughout the album, and one can enjoy the songs individually as well as within context. Musically, much like Schoolyard Ghosts, whose foundation was set by Bowness before Wilson added his touch to the material, the songs on this disc rarely adhere to strictly defined sound structures; instrumentation seems simplistic at face value, but a close listen reveals a beautiful sonic expanse. The compositions are imbued with a cinematic vibe to them, characterized by spectral keyboards lurking around the edges of the instruments. There is a great string arrangement seamlessly woven into the mix, but, as expected from Bowness' songwriting genius, it never becomes overpowering or distracting. When there's a need for solo instrumentation, it's mostly Anna Phoebe's violin gracing the most pivotal moments on the album.
