Those not won over by The Field up until this point should probably give him a second chance. "Yesterday And Today" carries some of the sublime that the debut was missing. It is clear that he has honed in on the best aspects of his debut and strengthened these with richer production. Ignore the first two tracks and just jump straight to "Leave It"; a retake on "The Deal" that surpasses it in every way, as if it had been blended with the smooth house of Luomo. The title track is the best track of the album, starting off similarly to "Everday" and "Silent", but (properly) finishing off with a brilliant drum and bass segment. Fans of the first album will no doubt love "The More That I Do", which starts off good, but then annoyingly locks loops for the remaining five minutes, much like most of the tracks on the debut.

"Yesterday And Today" represents a promising step for The Field, one which he can hopefully follow through on in the future.
