The only solo album by former Talk Talk frontman Mark Hollis, originally released in January 1998. Despite being released as a solo album, it was originally intended to be credited to Talk Talk, under the name 'Mountains of the Moon'. A beautiful and haunting work, the album picks up where Hollis left off with Talk Talk's 'Laughing Stock' seven years before, re-emerging with a suite of music that encompassed jazz, ambient, and folk. His inspiration came not from 'pop' but 20th-century classical music and jazz from the late fifties and sixties (there is a distinct flavour of Miles Davis - 'In a Silent Way' here) and is one of the quietest and most intimate records ever made - creating an exceptional atmosphere in which the listener can submerge.
