it starts off with a delicate short song called "coming home - an introduction", and most songs on the album are instrumental but, like Mogwai, there are a few songs with lyrics. "in the light of stars" is one such song on this 10 track album. it's a slow song and the lyrics/vocalist give it quite a sombre feel.
"a dreamy night (interlude)" is soft with more 'strings' than piano though 'strings' feature on most of the other songs which adds to the 'romance' and peaceful feel to all of the songs but also brings out the sombre side of the songs too. each song is technically well played and arranged - there's some good drum work, basslines (though often hard to pick out) and sounds underneath the piano/strings/main tune to keep it interesting. there are, however, instances when the song has 'built up' to a 'crescendo' to mark the slight change in the tune - a brief pause between transitions - and these remove you slightly from the flow, peace and tranquillity of the songs, which is a shame.
overall this is a heartfelt release, an outpouring of emotion, something you can sit and relax to while holding the hand your significant other. it moves through genres making it hard to place. i would recommend this as i did quite like it.
