One of the most beautiful records ever released. It´s so sad that nearly nobody knows it. This perfect voice coming with this fine Music is great. I love it!
Yes, this is Astley’s big label debut on Warner/Geffen, but this is no sellout. On the contrary, it’s as consistently intelligent, delicate and beautiful as anything she’s done, further enhanced by the distinctive and fitting contributions of Sakamoto and Sylvian.
So many memories! Every time i play this record i recall vivid moments of my life back in the days when this was released, i originally bought it on cassette, then through the years i bought it on CD and vinyl (even the Japanese pressings)
The dreamlike arrangements of Sakamoto are a perfect match for Astley's sweet vocals, all tracks are wonderful but "Some Small Hope", "So Like Dorian" and "A Summer Long Since Passed" have a special place in my heart...
