One of the best of Hammill's early solo albums. The thought-provoking, questioning lyrics of "Forsaken Gardens" and "A Louse Is Not a Home" query the fundamental premises of modern society (a theme later continued on The Noise) while "Rubicon" is a truly sensual love song. Throughout the album, Hammill's vocals scour the depths and reach to the skies and explore every place between sometimes harsh, sometimes as gentle as a lullaby. Always effective. ~ Ali Sinclair
