There are some highlights on the album that almost live up to the Bunnymen's glory - but they're too few and out numbered by a number of tracks marred by an uninspired lead guitar or just simplistic song structure. The stand out tracks on the album include 'High Wire' with it's infectious up-tempo groove and fun backing vocals (Woo!) (High Wire is also a very Electrafixion like song) and 'Seasons' - which is the most Bunny-like track on the disc. Other highlights include 'She Sings (all my life)' and 'Love in Veins.'
All said, the new album is a welcome addition to my CD collection - and is getting ripped to my iPod tonight. However, the album sure could use Will Sergeant's input. Together McCulloch and Sergeant are the best music partnership to come from Liverpool since Lennon-McCartney. With luck the Bunnymen will retun - until then you'll find me singing along to Slideling.

Spirited and hopeful, never mawkish or preachy. The songs fit together, giving the disc grace and power.Published on November 18, 2003
This disc is incredibly boring. Very typical of McCulloch's solo work. Very untypical of the vintage Echo & the Bunneymen that sound that gave him "voice".Published on August 27, 2003 by DAN STAFFORD
