This album is a true masterpiece from start to finish. Underrated for sure

Amazing album, more ambient than his previous two efforts... which is why it is all the more disappointing that the pressing (mine, at least) is quite garbage - some of the best tracks (9 and 10 in particular) are ruined for me by constant pops and excessive hissing. Shame, because on the same stereo setup the mp3 download which is included sounds fantastic and the warmth of a good vinyl pressing would have elevated this release to the heavens.

Ah.... A new Francis Harris LP. What a reassuring sight.

The melancholy, the textures, the contemplative swirling of organs, synths and occasional beats - it's all here.
As winter sets in, this record will be on solid rotation. Much like his other LPs, it's one you start from the very beginning and just let play; to set up shop in the atmosphere of his records is the real immersive pay-off that I imagine would be the artist listening preference, especially given the structure of his records.

I have a real affinity with Mr. Harris and his labels, and it was always likely that this would be an exceptional follow up to Minutes of Sleep. Away from the dancefloor ever so slightly, choosing to dwell on looser ambient ideas, channelling a self-described depression over the last four years, this is an album that makes me pine for a rainy day.

Now if he could just make it over to the UK for a DJ set, we can all get sad together.
