This album is a real gem, seldom does one come across such a perfect piece of art. The songwriting is achingly beautiful and the production is top-notch, it hasn’t dated one bit. Recurrent themes gently surface throughout the disc, and it's all held together by John Hurt's atmospheric narration, which adds a wonderful cinematic feel to it all.

As I recall now 1999 was a very boring year in musical terms, all filter-house and washed out trip-hop grooves. This release swam against the tide in all departments offering something very unique and beautiful, a true hidden treasure for those who know how to dig.

good to see the Art of Noise come back out of their self imposed woodwork and schedules. Great to see them turning our attention towards Debussy and his work.
But I just don't find much enjoyable about this record. It's dated itself really well and doesn't stand up to much listening anymore save those one or two songs that had the immediate impact upon the first listen. The rest of it just gets skipped through.
