AllMusic/Dean Carlson: “The musical and emotional collapses are
so moving, so stirring, that it sounds like the pessimistic turn to just
about every soaring, triumphant song ever found on the planet. This
reason alone serves as a singular, important experience. So while you
might feel like that poor local weatherman in a yellow slicker getting
pelted when you listen to this album, by the time the final track fades
out you realize it was worth every last, sonic droplet.”

The announcement comes alongside a never-before-seen
video for one of the LP’s highlights ‘Aire & Calder’…
I loved (still do) that brilliant single Stay Young…
And that show in Amsterdam, in the legendary Paradiso club back in 1998 or 1999
(I can’t remember the year exactly) was pretty special… and I found some pics I took
in my archives…
