Though Doyle's album tests my patience a bit with its experimental incompleteness, when the man is on, he is ON, like here, pinning those lush keys on a floating banana-creme melody that soars.

Off to a great start piggybacking off of the fame that their previously released singles that got remasters for the album (Athens, France and Sunglasses) got, they really delivered here. With the mix of skill levels of each performer (none bad, but I mean more of their tone), there’s a rich feeling in each song. Each one paints a picture if you listen in. Easily one of, if not, the best album of the year and dare I say the decade. rm--

Loved all things Jane since intro'd to her by Stuart @ bbc6music. Had this on preorder, yet it's taken c.1mnth to get a download. Had to email Fire records, asking wtf? They sent a code, but how was I meant to use it? Only by accident did I find the right place in 'personal settings' at last. Surely Bancamp could signpost this sort of biz more clearly, for those of us who aren't very tech-savvy?
ANYWAY! Album brilliant, of course- and now I can finally listen to it while out and about! Bliss. moggydon
