2010 album from the Belgian Electronic trio, their first to feature new vocalist Noemie Wolfs. For over 15 years, Hooverphonic have defied categorization and have managed to evolve their sound over time. From Trip Hop to Electro Pop, the band have developed a devoted worldwide fanbase. Over the years, they've been compared to acts like Massive Attack and Portishead but they remain a unique and intriguing act that always manages to surprise their audience with each release. Columbia.

I liked the first three CDs by Hooverphonic, although I got a bit tired of the singer doing so much whisper-singing and talking during the songs. I'm a bit confused about the singer who replaced her, but I believe the singer on this CD is the 3rd singer for the band. She has a very strong voice, doesn't do the whisper thing and is a great improvement. The style of the music is slow to medium crooning, but I am hooked on this CD, in particular the first three songs. The songs are short, but I can handle that. I will get more Hooverphonic when/if the prices of some of their other CDs come down. I understand they were domestically released in the U.S. except for the "Jackie Kane" double CD (lots of remixes for a double album set), so why such high prices?
Anyway, my conclusion is this is by far the best Hooverphonic I've heard so far. I've heard a few songs from the orchestral version of this CD (not all same songs), and they sound exactly the same as they sound on this CD except for the applause at the end of each track.
Of the 4 CDs by this group, I like this one the best, but I want more! And for those who are wondering, all the songs on the 4 CDs I have are in English despite the group being Belgian.
Get it, judge it yourself, I was disappointed, loved Hooverphonic, bands change, sometimes the "Whole is better than the sum of the parts. I would have like better after no release for 6 years. Sigh.. -30-
