Sample this album Artist Sample. I am a big fan of David Sylvian, so this album is very familiar to me. I originally had this on CD in the 1990s, and played it frequently, so on hearing the additional tracks on this 2-disc version, I feel that they don't quite fit in with the rest of the album. It all makes for great listening, and I recommend it to anyone who enjoys ambient art rock.
