Album Notes and Credits


Notes & Personnel Info
Muze PNote The Church: Steve Kilbey, Marty Willson-Piper, Peter Koppes, Tim Powles.
Muze PNote More than two decades and 14 albums down the line, Australia's most persistent dream pop band releases another in a series of Church discs that at this stage are almost interchangeable. Steve Kilbey's voice floats on pillows of cloudy chords provided by the shimmering guitars of Marty Wilson-Piper and Peter Koppes. Guests provide keyboards, violin, and viola accompaniment, but they slide into the haze of the ballads and don't appreciably add to a band whose sound is so well established it seems they're afraid, or at least unwilling, to tinker with the formula. Like the gray pictures of a tranquil ocean on the album's artwork, this music gradually shifts like the tides, taking its time and setting a languid mood. Melodic but samey, the songs flow into each other, creating a relaxing, seamless work that never breaks out of its mold. That said, the musicianship is of such consistently high quality that even the most lackluster tunes are redeemed by the band's innate professionalism. Needless to say, established fans will find lots here to like; Kilbey's stream-of-consciousness lyrics may or may not mean something, and occasionally the guitars threaten to break out, as on "Chromium." That they never really do sets up a vibrant if subtle tension that redeems the overall monotony of much of this beautiful album. It's excellent music for Sunday mornings or rainy nights, but the lack of memorable songs as gripping (and rocking) as the band is capable of leaves this as a gorgeous yet slightly disappointing release from a band who seems stuck in a lovely and competent rut. ~ Hal Horowitz

Professional Reviews

Rolling Stone (2/28/02, pp.61-2)
- 3.5 stars out of 5- "...A masterpiece of stealth, a quiet killer in which subtle exquisite shocks of tonal theater puncture the reverb without scarring it....rarely have you heard this sound done better..."

Alternative Press (4/02, pp.68-70)
- 8 out of 10 - "...The disc is low-key, moody, ballad-laden...but it has a nasty spark and a vicious bite..."

Mojo (Publisher)
(2/02, p.93)
- "...AENT finds the group sounding autumnal and cult-ish as ever, frontman Steve Kilbey's cheerless lyrics honed as you might expect from a published poet, and Marty Wilson-Piper's guitars still doused in echo and reverb....Fans are well served..."
