Daphne Lawless continues an impressively individual path with another record that's clearly as strange and rich as her previous ones. "Crowley in a previous life" is a typically skewed tale of a reincarnation of the English mystic. "Yonder lies the sea" is strangely quiet, but with a beguiling tune. The title track approaches an odd but satisfying sense of the epic with a tale told to a soft melody. The album ends with an old Leonard Cohen song rendered uniquely. It's a fitting finale.
