General comments:

This collaboration between Tim Booth of James and Angelo Badalamenti of David Lynch fame is beyond beautiful. Angelo's lush orchestration and Tim Booth's divine voice make for some truly breathtaking music. I only heard of them because of James, and most people aren't aware it even exists.
