      All three This Mortal Coil albums are wonderful, this one is my favorite and I’ve loved it since the ‘80’s. It balances the “pretty” songs with sounds that are almost industrial. Brilliant - Ivo and John Fryer were a great team who pooled together incredible talent. Simon Raymonde was also a big part of the album and deserves credit and acknowledgement for his wonderful arrangements. It is full of highlights, for example the version of Van Morrison’s “Come here my love” has haunted me from my teenage years right through to my middle age and the album introduced Gene Clark’s music into my life. Made living in the ’80’s bearable and is still relevant for today’s crazy world.

        In my top 10 albums of all-time. Loved this from the first time I heard it, in my late teens

          This double album is a huge disappointment. I read on the net that it’s a «goth classic etc». Being on 4 AD and this is a joint project, you’d exept more Cocteau twins/dead can dance collaboration here, well it’s not. It’s like a walk in the desert.

            After all these years, I still can't believe how beautiful this album is.

              F&S is a quintessential acquisition for anyone who is interested in the aesthetic side of 80s music.

              (Should the album receive a a reissue, they should make it a proper gatefold and lose the white frame from the cover, like they did on CDs)
