David Sylvian's second solo release built on the more atmospheric nature of its predecessor, 'Brilliant Trees'.
 
Featuring Robert Fripp and Bill Nelson, the album's first disc revealed a poignant and epic Art Rock style, while its second disc boasted a series of haunting instrumentals occasionally evoking Brian Eno's beguiling Apollo soundtrack.
