John Kilbey’s first solo album proper contained a sparkling, insightful collection of guitar driven esoteric-rock tracks – as honest, bold and striking as the cover suggests, Five years in the making, this is the cd which defined Kilbey’s post Bhagavad, solo sound. The production is shimmering and inventive, the songs are at once immediate and evocative, the overall sound is of high lustre and sheen, the detailed with depth and clarity. The 14 tracks walk a  tightrope between innovative future -pop and the classic past. This cd takes the best of Bhagavad Guitars melodic charm, the atmospherics/intangibles of Penny Drops, some choice power chords, wicked humour, intelligence and impeccable references and shoves them through a musical shredder.
