They don't slow–dance round here no more

5 out of 5 stars

I was a major Guillemots fanatic before Fyfe decided, much like Roald Dahl, to go solo. The tracks on this album are much more stripped-down in nature, allowing for a more heartfelt sound. From the opening exaltation of "When You Walk in the Room" to the the bittersweet "Livewire", Fyfe's voice remains ripe with emotion. Those looking for the bombast of Guillemots' early work will revel in "She Needs Me"; and "Faster Than The Setting Sun", my personal favourite, is a work of pure, irredesant atmosphere (it's a word from the song, it fits). With a solo debut as strong as 'Fly Yellow Moon', in the words of the album's closer, "this could go in any direction."
