Review by Mick Mercer their inclusion had been settled five Finish The Story tracks. Rejoice people, rejoice! ‘Trapped In The Hometown' has a gauzy tangle of music behind slowly drawn vocals with its memorable guitar rising alongside and revealing a weighty variety of musical avenues to pull you down; the mood empty, or brightly in your face, a thoroughly diverting, divine encounter. ‘Playing At Life' is even better with a mean throb, and more of his sublimely catchy, nagging guitar with Nicola's unusually piercing vocals and a weirdly spooky synth. ‘Solace' is more relaxed, actually far more towards the This Window style, being like ambient bellows, billowing...........and there's an intriguing little slice called ‘Ripples In The Water' at the end too.
