Here it is, our 17th album!!! This is a hugely ambitious release and one we are deeply proud of.
The album begins with a gentle acoustic guitar piece 'From Hello to Goodbye', before launching into the up tempo 'Still Waiting, Still Wanting'. This track features a beautiful guitar melody and some great mellotron. After that, some fine percussion playing introduces us to the first real epic track on the album 'Studies In Heartbreak'. This track has the lot: outrageous time signatures, shifting tempos, country, jazz, progressive rock, funk and a heavy metal/thrash section!
The next track ' The End Of A Life' is the most moody and depressing piece of music we have ever recorded, as befits its title. It's wonderfully simple and beautifully melodic as it describes the passing of a life into the next world or realm or whatever you believe in. It closes with some spacey guitar and reverse percussion.
After all that misery, we pile headlong into the next epic, 'Failures Of The Soul'. This track, like 'Lost' on the 'Anhedonia' CD, explores many themes and features a full 6 minute section of purely orchestral music and an improvised piano solo. After that, the wonderful melodies take flight again and bring us gently to the end of the track. Quite a journey!
Next track is 'Hourglass Fortune'. This kicks off with a heavy electric guitar riff played in unison with the flute and goes through all manner of changes before ending on a climactic guitar solo.
Finally, we have 'Love's Futile Fumblings' which starts off with a gentle guitar riff followed by a build up of instruments before taking flight into a moving guitar solo that changes key every few bars to keep things interesting. After that, we briefly reprise the introduction and then end on a mesmerizing electric guitar solo before arriving at the end of the album with some heavy guitar chords.
Once again, the album features a full colour 8 page booklet, double sided inlay (the first time we have done this!) and some stunning artwork throughout.
